We’re Still Searching For The Lady Who Jumped Into Lagoon – LASEMA

The lady, who jumped into the Lagos Lagoon on Thursday, has yet to be found as search and rescue operations continued on Friday.

The victim reportedly alighted from a car and jumped into the lagoon after an argument with her fiancé on the phone.

The Permanent Secretary of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Dr Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, in a statement on Thursday, said the driver of the taxi claimed that she was having a heated conversation with her fiancé before alighting from the car and jumped into the lagoon.

“Men of the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Services, LASWA and officials of the Department of State Services are currently on the ground working together to search for the victim.”

Oke-Osanyintolu, in a fresh confirmation on Friday, claimed that the search and rescue team was still in the water trying to locate the victim.

The Public Education Officer, Lagos State Fire Service, Amodu Shakiri, however, said there was no success, as the body of the victim had yet to be found.

He said, “We continued search and rescue operations today, but there is no progress for now. We are going to make an official statement as soon as we conclude our operations.”
