The mother of Daibo Davies, the man who jumped into the lagoon from the Third Mainland bridge in Lagos State, has spoken about the death of her son.
Davies told Channels TV that her son was a fresh graduate of Lagos State University (LASU) where he studied quantity survey. She added that the deceased was looking forward to a master’s degree in Canada.
The deceased, whose body is yet to be found, was also said to be preparing to undergo his National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) programme before the incident.
She also said her late son had no previous record of depression or drug abuse, appealing to the Lagos state government to intensify search for her son’s body.
Davies had left many stunned when he dived into the lagoon after appealing to the driver of the car conveying him to stop while still on the bridge.
