Officials of all relevant government agencies including the Police, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Lagos State Fire Service, and policemen from the Marine unit as well as local divers are combing the water in search for the body of a woman who allegedly plunged into the lagoon.
Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Chike Oti, said that there was no vehicle found parked on the bridge contrary to the claims that a Ford Explorer allegedly driven by the victim was seen parked.

He said that the Divisional Police Officers in charge of Adeniji Adele and Oworonshoki whose jurisdiction the bridge falls into did not find any car parked as at the time they arrived the scene.
He said: “We heard the news which is making round of a lady who jumped into the lagoon. We have taken note of the vehicle’s registration number which is APP 190 CE. We are cross-checking this information with the vehicle licensing office to ascertain the identity of the owner of the car. As we speak, nobody has reported such case with any of the police divisions.

“If the lady parked her car and jumped off the bridge into the lagoon, the car will be there. And if someone had removed it, the person would have driving it to the station. In all, we are still investigating and before the end of the day we will get to the root of the matter.”
