The operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS), yesterday evening, prevented a mother of four from committing suicide by jumping into the lagoon with a 12 – month old baby.
The lady, Halimat Adegoke (not real name), 27, was restrained by two Response riders from plunging into the lagoon from the Third Mainland Bridge.
A cab driver had drawn the attention of the RRS riders on routine patrol of the area to Mrs Adegoke, who was carrying a 12 – month old baby at about past 5:00 p.m. Thus averting what would have been a double tragedy.
On interrogation at the RRS HQ, Adegoke stated that she trekked from Medina Estate in Gbagada to the Third Mainland.
Adding that she heard a voice calling out to her to come to the Third Mainland Bridge.
She pointed out that she decided to harken to the call because it was repeated and constant.
Adegoke, a UNILAG drop out, told RRS interrogators that before the incident, she had issues with her husband and relocated to her parents’ house in Gbagada, Lagos.
The lady along with her baby were released to her relatives this morning.
