Frustrated Igbo Man Shouts Buhari! Buhari!! Buhari!!! Jumps Into Lagos Rivers To Commit Suicide

An unidentified Igbo man in his 40 reportedly frustrated by the harsh economy under President Muhammadu Buhari lost hope and jumped into the river on the Mile Two Bridge in Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area, but for the timely intervention of a passengers speedboat voyager who rescued him might have died,Daily Sun reports this morning.

The unidentified man, according to eyewitnesses, stood on the bridge for some minutes, loudly expressed bitterness over his sufferings and how things had gone bad for him and his helplessness.

He was said to have mentioned Buhari repeatedly, muttered some other words before he finally took the terrible decision.

However, the timely intervention of a passing speedboat prevented the victim, who is in his 40s, from drowning.

Passengers on the speedboat dived into the river, dragged the man who was gasping for breath to the riverbank, and continued their journey.

A witness, Mr. Andy Odiaka, said the victim, who wore native clothes, was left on the floor for a while, unconscious.

Odiaka said that he called the state emergency number – 112, which facilitated the arrival of the Lagos State Ambulance Service (LASAMBUS) in about 20 minutes.

The three-man medical team, went ahead of the bus to resuscitate the victim. According to one of the medics, the man had to be given first aid drip, explaining that he was too weak to make it to the hospital.

Odiaka said: “I was there on the bridge where the man was also standing. He was speaking to himself. He said he had no transport fare to move from one place to another. He said his suffering was too much that he could hardly feed. I also heard him saying life was meaningless to him. He mentioned Buhari many times, and the next thing I saw, the man jumped from the bridge into the water.

“He is an Igbo man because he was speaking the language. I thought he was joking when he said he was tired of everything around him.  “If not for a speedboat that was passing, he would have died. The boat stopped and the passengers dragged him to the riverbank and they continued their journey.

“Thereafter, nobody was ready to assist him. People simply looked at him, expressed sympathy and continued their journey. I have to call an emergency number,” he said.

Before the ambulance came, it was gathered that sympathisers, including Mr Odiaka, contributed about  N1, 000, with the intention of taking the victim to the hospital.

Another witness, who simply gave his name as Okpala, said he ran to the place and saw the man almost dying, but did not know what to do to help him out of the situation. He said he mobilised others at the scene to donate money to take the victim to a hospital.

“The man said he was tired of life and he wanted to kill himself,” he said.

When the victim’s pockets were searched for any means identity, only N90 was found on him.

most time we Nigerians played with serious national issues on the social media. one would have expected a state of emergency on the current recession in Nigeria. the facts on ground are no longer or joke or laughing matter. even a whole me my diet has been altered. and you want me to be happy with this present administration. Nigeria has a long history of criticising it bad leaders dating back to the military era. it's not new and no one is left out.

I am fully ready to keep lambasting them on social media until things change for good.

People are suffering in this country..
Only 90bucks was found in his pocket..and that is probably all he has..

A dollar is about 420bucks and it is affecting every business man in this country..
For the first time in the history of rice. A bag is 22k!

Firms are closing..People are dying..crime is increasing... and what are the young people doing?
Fooling themselves up and down..
