The Lagos State Police Command on Thursday gave an update on the man who jumped into the lagoon at the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge area of Lagos on Tuesday.

The police confirmed the identity of the deceased as Buka Abana.

The spokesman of the state command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin claimed that the 30-year-old had been on hard drugs.

Hundeyin also stated that he had left his Lekki Phase I residence about two days before the incident.

His family members who had reportedly formed a search party for him later received information that he was seen around the bridge and decided to go after him.

Hundeyin said, “The man’s name is Buka Abana. He was aged 30. He had been taking Colorado hard drugs.

“He left home for two days and in the process of searching for him, he sighted the family members and jumped into the lagoon as soon as he saw them.”

A source who spoke on condition of anonymity with The Punch said, “The man lived in Lekki Phase I. He had been taking Colorado. He was missing for two days and his family members were searching for him.

“They got information that he was seen around the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge and they rushed there to take him home.

“Unfortunately when he sighted them, he quickly jumped into the lagoon.”
