“He directed the lady who was unaware of his motive to park somewhere while he walked to a spot for a leap into the Lagoon.

“A passerby who observed his movement quickly alerted patrolling RRS operatives who persuaded him from jumping, and reunited him with his wife before taking them to RRS Headquarters in Alausa,” RRS stated.

It stated that the RRS Commander, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, gave the man some advice.

“Egbeyemi, after advising the man and his family, directed that the case be transferred to Gender Department, Lagos police command for further counselling and necessary actions.”
