Suicidal man climbs electric pole in Lagos, threatens to jump down
A suicidal man took an unusual route in his attempt to kill himself by climbing to the top of an electric pole.
The incident which took many by surprise, happened at Adebisi Ogunniyi Crescent, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos State, when the man was found early this morning on his suicidal mission.
Eyewitnesses say the man looked scary hanging on the top of the pole, screaming that he was going to jump down as some people frantically called police officers from the Maroko Division who hurried to the scene to try and persuade the man to abandon his suicide attempt
This is not the first time someone would attempt to take the high pole route to suicide. In March 2015, a naked man was found at the top of a telecommunication mast in the same Lekki and it took lots of persuasion for the man to come down.
