An undergraduate of the Lagos State University simply identified as Kingsley Gabriel on Monday afternoon reportedly jumped into the Five Cowries Creek of the Lagos Lagoon from Falomo bridge in Ikoyi, Lagos.
The student, who did not leave a suicide note, was swiftly rescued by officials of the state waterways authority and taken to Falomo Police Station.
It was not clear why he decided to end his life.
After receiving medical treatment, he was arrested and retained.
He will soon be charged to court.
Last year, a woman who said she was heavily indebted was charged to court and remanded in prison custody after being rescued from the lagoon at Maza Maza area of the state.
