This is not the first time some depressed Nigerians have jumped into the Lagoon to kill themselves. Two years ago, a young medical doctor who had been suffering from depression for a long time committed suicide by jumping to the same lagoon while a businesswoman was lucky as she was rescued while taking the same route.
