Officials of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) have rescued a suicidal man at Lekki who attempted to jump into the lagoon.

The sad occurrence occurred on Saturday around 10:35pm after motorists sighted the young man and raised the alarm which attracted the attention of LASEMA officials in Lekki.

It was gathered that emergency workers, police and motorists managed to talk the unnamed name out of his bid.

A source quoted the victim as saying he attempted to take his life because he was tired of life.

Confirming the occurrence, the Director-General, LASEMA, Dr. Femi Oke-Osanyintolu said he was examined by paramedics and handed over to two Good Samaritans committed to ensuring adequate therapy and psychological counseling for him.
