The incident which happened on the morning of Monday, February 20, 2017, according to a Twitter user with the handle @Brendalishus, the man was seen hanging on the pedestrian bridge at Jakande along the Lekki-Epe Expressway threatening to jump to his death.

People were seen gathering at the scene begging the man not to jump from the bridge but it was all to no avail as he refused to come down.

Even the arrival of the police and their persistent begging did not meet the required result.
