The Victim was rescued but sustained varying degrees of injury. He was later rushed to the Lagos State Teaching Hospital, where he was then referred to Lagos University Teaching Hospital.

RRS Officials interrogated the cab driver and he said he picked the yet-to-be- identified man from igando, a suburb of Lagos.

The cab driver said “I carried him (the passenger) from Igando and he insisted I pass through the Third Mainland Bridge. On getting to the bridge, he asked me whether this was Third Mainland Bridge and I answered yes. He told me that he was pressed and that I should wait for him to ease himself. I was curious.

At this time, he was forcing me to wait. I stylishly drove him to the point where the RRS men were standing inward Lagos. I told him I was no longer interested in the trip before I approached the police officers leaving him inside the car.”
