A young lady identified as Halimat Adegoke (not real name) was saved on Tuesday evening by the operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) from committing suicide by jumping into the Lagoon with her 12-month old baby. She was restrained by two Response riders from plummeting into the Lagoon from the top of the Third Mainland Bridge.

Following the alert of the RRS riders on routine patrol of the area to Mrs Adegoke who was carrying a 1 year old baby at about 5:00pm, the RRS rushed to rescue her. On interrogation by the Rapid Response Squad Head Quarters, Adegoke said she walked to the Third Mainland from Medina Estate in Gbagada.

She disclosed that she heard a voice telling her to go to the Third Mainland Bridge. She decided to listen to the voice because it constantly called her out.
Halimat Adegoke who is 27-year-old mother of four and a Unilag drop out told RRS interrogatos that she had issues with her husband before the suicide incidence. She said it was the issue that made relocate to her parent’s house in Gbagada, Lagos.
Adegoke and her baby are now with her relatives.
