In what is seen as an act of spiritual manipulation, known in these parts of the world as 'remote control,' a man committed suicide by jumping into the Lagos Lagoon.

According to witnesses, the well dressed young man was said to have driven in his Toyota Sienna car along the Third Mainland Bridge this morning, and when he got to the middle of the bridge, he calmly parked, opened the door of the car and calmly walked to the railings of the bridge and jumped into the lagoon.

According to Linda Ikeji Blog, those who saw the incident said it happened so sudden and must have taken everyone by surprise and before anyone could react, the man had gone plunging into the raging sea.
