Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, Permanent Secretary of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), says that the search and rescue team is still in the river trying to locate the body of Adetutu Adedokun, the lady who jumped into the Lagos Lagoon onThursday, November 10.

Channels TV also reported that Oke-Osanyintolu gave the update on Friday, November 11.

 

 

Sources cited by Channels TV revealed that she is an unarmed combat instructor who stepped into the working shoes of her parents, who worked with the plain cloth service.

Just a few months ago, Adedokun, who was in her late 30s, received a letter of commendation from the Director General of DSS as the best-unarmed combat operative in her set.

The victim’s fiance was also reported to have proposed to her a few weeks ago.

Adetutu had allegedly alighted from a Uber taxi car on the bridge and plunged into the lagoon on Thursday afternoon.

The taxi driver claimed she was having a heated conversation with her fiance before alighting from the car.

Shortly after the incident, the LRT, Men of Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, Lagos State Waterways Authority (LASWA), and officials of the DSS swung into action in search of the victim.

 

Recall that in July 2022, a 28-year-old man identified simply as Sodiq Aremu also took his own life by jumping into the Lagos lagoon in the Elegushi area of the state.

The deceased was said to have strolled toward the waterfront at Elegushi beach around 11pm on Wednesday, July 7, 2022.

A police source said that before anyone could fathom what was happening, the deceased dropped a bag she was holding and jumped into the river.
