BREAKING: Body of medical doctor who jumped into lagoon from 3rd mainlad bridge found
Reports says the mother of Dr. Allwell Orji, who jumped into
the Lagos Lagoon from Third Mainland Bridge, claimed that the recovered body by
marine policemen was not that of her child (son).

The Zone 2 Police Command spokesperson, SP Dolapo Badmos
stated that: “The mother has come to
identify the body recovered, but she said the deceased was not her son.”


It was earlier reported that the corpse of Allwell Orji, a
medical doctor, who jumped into the lagoon on the Third Mainland Bridge had
been recovered from the Lagoon by marine policemen.
Speaking to The Punch, a police source said that Allwell’s
mother had been reached to come for the identification of the corpse.
The Source said: “The
body of the doctor was found at about 11.30am. We want to be double sure and
his parent has been called to come and identify the body
.”
The Lagos State Police Command has however withdrew its
statement that the body of Dr. Allwell Orji who jumped into the Lagos lagoon on
Sunday evening had been recovered.
Reports from Channels Television says, the Lagos state
commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni had established that the corpse belongs
to the medical doctor.
He said the corpse was found by the Marine Police at the Onikan
end of the lagoon.
If the body recovered belongs to Dr. Orji’s, it means it
took three days to recover the corpse after the incident occurred.
Before his death, the late doctor worked at the Mount Sinai
Hospital in Surulere, Lagos state.
He was alleged to be on his way to Victoria Island for a
meeting with the Medical and Dental Association of Nigeria when the incident occurred.
Recall that the deceased on Sunday, March 19, 2017 asked his
driver to pullover before jumping across the bridge and into the Lagoon.
In a statement released by the Lagos State Emergency Agency
(LASEMA), there was a distress call of a man who parked his grey coloured
Nissan SUV around 4.50 pm around Adekunle and jumped into the Lagos lagoon.
LASEMA said the vehicle and the driver had been moved to
Adeniji Adele Police Station for more investigation.

According to his neighbours, the doctor had made several
attempts to take his live four years ago, at the family’s two story building situated
on Odunukan street, Ebute-Ejigbo, Yaba area of Lagos. But, during all those
previous incidents, his neighbours were his rescuers.
