A distressing incident unfolded today in the Lekki area of Lagos, Nigeria, where a young man was caught on camera attempting to take his own life.
In a video shared on social media by influencer @Mbahdeyforyou on the X platform, the young man can be seen hanging from a rope suspended from a bridge, while standing on top of a white bus.
Two courageous individuals who happened to be at the scene immediately sprang into action. They climbed onto the bus and struggled with the young man to prevent him from carrying out his suicide attempt.
In the background of the video, some people can be heard urging the rescuers to “leave him,” but the two individuals persisted in their efforts to save him.
After a challenging struggle during which the young man resisted letting go, they were eventually successful in untying the rope from his neck, thereby putting an end to his attempt to take his own life.
It’s important to note that attached to the bridge and the rope where the suicide attempt occurred was a cardboard sign bearing the words “Justice End Game Media,” although the context and significance of this message remain unclear.
