The sister of Daibo Davies, an Uber passenger, who plunged into Lagos lagoon from the Third Mainland Bridge, Omasan, has sought the recovery of her brother's body.
Recall that on Saturday, February 15, 2020, the 21-year-old jumped into the lagoon after alighting from the Uber he boarded on the pretext of having a stomach upset.
After begging the Uber driver to stop so he could relieve himself, Davies reportedly climbed the pavement of the bridge and jumped into the water.
Following the incident, rescuers were mobilized to the scene for the recovery of Davies body.
In an interview with Channels TV, Omasan urged Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), and other government agencies to find and recover the body of her brother.
Omasan said she's yet to believe her brother jumped into the lagoon, adding that hey both had great plans for the future.
“Toju on his normal self will never jump into the Lagoon because we spoke and he told me that he could not wait to go and serve in Abuja. I told him that I would come and see him there because I school at the University of Abuja," Omasan was quoted as saying while wondering why her brother killed himself.
Davies mother had said her son was planning for his master's degree in Canada, after his graduation from LASU.
The deceased, whose body is yet to be found, according to the mother, was also preparing to undergo his National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) programme before the incident happened.
She added that her late son had no previous record of depression or drug abuse, as he appealed to the Lagos government to intensify search for her son’s body.
