Many across the world especially Nigerians are still wondering what could cause a medical doctor to think of taking his own life.

On Sunday, it was a sad day as a middle-aged man identified as Orji, a medical doctor practitioner allegedly committed suicide by jumping off the popular and busy Lagos Third Mainland Bridge.

Although, there are speculations that frustration about situation in the country forced man to conclude leaving the “painful earth”.

A report from Police revealed that the deceased asked his driver to stop before jumping across the bridge and into the water.

The Lagos State Emergency Agency (LASEMA) in a statement said there was a distress call of a man who parked his grey coloured Nissan SUV about 4.50 pm around Adekunle and jumped into the Lagos lagoon.

LASEMA said efforts were being made to recover Orji’s corpse while the vehicle and the driver have been taken to Adeniji Adele Police Station for further investigation.
