You see what we were discussing the other day about the “jumping into water” approach to suicide in Nigeria? Another suicide attempt was averted in Lagos yesterday when a yet to be identified 45-year-old man jumped into a 116 feet well at a residence in Kujore street in the Ojota area of Lagos state. Again people around screamed for help and men of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) who were alerted, arrived the scene and rescued the man alive from the well. He only sustained a fracture on his hand. Reasons for the attempted suicide are not yet known. Would you really like to know?
Just a few days ago it was a student of Federal University of Technology (FUTO) Owerri. Yesterday it was a man in Lagos. What is with water and suicide?
