A yet-to-be-identified Man allegedly jumped into a river and drowned in Lokoja, Kogi state capital.
The incident happened at about 12:30 PM on Tuesday at Meme Bridge few metres away from the Dunamis Church headquarters in Lokoja. The deceased, a tricycle rider, was said to have arrived at the bridge, parked his tricycle, and jumped into the river.
A witness who craved anonymity said he was shocked seeing the man jumping from on top of the bridge into the river. He said the economic hardship biting Nigerians may be one of the reasons for him to take his life.
