Following the news that a Nigerian woman who lives in Texas, US committed suicide by jumping into the Lagoon over the weekend, a supposed photo of the said woman has been trending online (read here).
However, the woman in the supposed photo who is named Toyin, has now refuted the rumours. She has taken to her Instagram page to share a photo of herself with the caption; “I’m alive, and I will live long on earth.”
This means the woman that jumped into the Lagoon hasn’t been identified yet… or should we say the report of a woman jumping into the Lagoon is false?
More than 24 hours after the woman allegedly jumped off the Third Mainland Bridge relevant government agencies say they have no information about what transpired.
A few hours after the incident, officials of the Lagos State Emergency Response Agency (LASEMA) began combing the Lagoon in search of the woman.
Till now, there is still no official account about what happened or the identity of the woman.
Meanwhile, a video of the woman whose photos were circulated as the suicide victim as has been released. In the video, the woman who identifies herself as Bola Dale says even though she is also a mother of 3, she is not in any way linked to the incidence.

Adesina Tiamiyu, LASEMA’s general manager, said the agency has called on Lagosians with any information regarding the identity of the lady to come forward or report to the police.
“They can call the emergency numbers 112 or 767,” Mr Tiamiyu said. “Our men are still combing the waterways alongside the marine police for any floating body. I’m also appealing to those who use the waters to alert us if they see any body.”
A source at LASEMA told PREMIUM TIMES that the agency had found the owner of the Ford SUV, which in the video, was parked on the bridge during the incident.
“The person is just a first responder at the scene of the incident. He said someone did jump into the lagoon but we are continuing with our investigation to confirm that,” the source, who preferred not to be named because he was not authorised to speak on the agency’s behalf, said.
Yesterday, a Facebook user Nick Sparkles, claimed the woman, married with three kids had jumped into Third Mainland Bridge because her husband found out about an affair she was carrying out with a Nigerian-based man and when he did a DNA test on all the children, he found out none was his.

According to the report, the lover swindled/collected over N10m from her. Sparkles revealed that the wealthy woman later got him arrested, only for him to release nude pictures of them together in order to prove his innocence to the police that whatever happened between both of them was consensual and that he’s not a fraudster as claimed by the deceased.
The blackmail from the man allegedly got to the deceased’s husband and this compelled him to conduct a DNA test on all their three children which proved they are not his.
The series of events allegedly pushed the deceased into committing suicide.

The said lover was immediately driven into shock upon hearing the news which was why the police picked him from the hospital.
A video capturing the arrest of the yet to be identified lover of the deceased was also shared online.
Below is the story that made the rounds which the woman was forced to deny.
