Jan 30, 2015 – Picture: Mentally Unstable Man Escapes From Church Commits Suicide By Jumping Into Lagos Lagoon From Third Mainland Bridge At Iyana Oworo

Yesterday a mentally unstable man identified as Ezebu Joseph took his own life after he escaped from a healing center located on Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

According to eyewitnesses, the deceased was in a passenger bus heading towards Obalende on the Island when he suddenly told the driver to stop.

He reportedly forced the door open, jumped out and plunged into the Lagoon at Iyana Oworo on the Mainland bridge before anyone could confront him.

According to family sources, the deceased who hailed from Imo State had been taken to a church on the aforementioned expressway for prayers before he escaped.

The relatives said they did not know how he left the place and joined a public transport. The police have recovered his corpse and deposited it in a morgue in the area.

Motorists are now calling on Lagos State Government to put a big barrier on the bridge as it has now become a popular suicide spot.

May his soul rest in peace.

    Adanna Ike church is the only place to heal mad people. No amount of psychiatric medication can heal mad people because is caused by idol worshipers, masqueraders village shrine, spiritual or ancestors. Adanna if you have gone through these sort of issues you will quickly run to god for help. Only they did not fully monitor this man. Very sad he took his own life. the demon must have told him (hearing voices) go jump in Lagoon because they know he was nearly getting his freedom.

    My younger sister hear these sort of voices and is having mental health disorder which is madness for 3 years now . she is on psychiatric medications. Though the medication and my prayers have made her ok, she still seriously need a deliverance from an anointed man of God. I am planning to take her to a church but it will be either to Tb Joshua or Prophet Jeremiah church at Waurri. I dont care what anyone will say these are real men of God who can help them with just one touch prayers and they will never run away till they get their complete healing.

    @Grace…you couldnt have said it any better. When it comes to mental issues in Nigeria, a greeat percentage is caused by the list you gave and some more. His destiny might have been exchanged etc. These are the kinds of wickedness that resides in Africa. If only God would open our eyes….he probably had a very glorious destiny and they killed it before fuition. My sister went through such except she knew she was functionally mad. This is the worst kind before death. This type make one feel like they are ok when they are wasting away. The tragic thing is that you would get in trouble if you try to help them. They may even leave the church where their deliverance is going to take place or even insult the pastor who is to do the deliverance. I felt the same way to and i can only say it was the mercy of God that saw me through. May God help us all.
