A middle-aged woman reportedly jumped into the lagoon in the Maza-Maza area of the state, a day after Dr. Allwell Orji plunged into the Lagos lagoon.
The woman was however lucky, as she was rescued by some local fishermen and divers in the area.
According to witnesses, the woman, dressed in a blouse and trousers was earlier seen walking aimlessly and when she got to the middle of the Maza-Maza bridge, she climbed the rail and plunged into the lagoon, but the fishermen dived in after her and she was rescued.
Although her details are yet to be ascertained, it was gathered that she was rushed to a nearby hospital by her rescuers.
The Lagos Police have said that they are unsure of the identity of the body recovered from the Lagos Lagoon, after confirming to Channels Television that the body of Dr. Allwell Orji who jumped into the Lagos Lagoon on Sunday had been recovered.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Fatai Owoseni had earlier claimed that Dr. Orji’s body was found by the Marine Police, at the Onikan end of the Lagoon.
