March 20, 2016 – Pictures: Nigerian Dr Allwell Orji Jumped Into Lagos Lagoon After Receiving Strange Phone Call – Eyewitnesses

In a sad suicidal move, a medical doctor, Allwell Oji, jumped into the Lagos lagoon on Sunday the 19th of March 2017.

The incident happened at 4:45pm on Third Mainland Bridge when 35-year-old was on his way to Victoria Island where he was going to attend a Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) meeting.

Oji, who left from his house at Abule Ijesha in Yaba, was said to have told his driver, Henry Ita, to parked his Nissan Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) marked LND476EE at the Adeniji Adele end of the bridge on the excuse that he wanted to pee.

As he came down, the doctor was said to have climbed the bridge’s rail guide and jumped into the ocean.

Oji is said to be a staff of the Isolo branch of Mt. (Mount) Sinai Hospital.

A commercial bus passenger, who gave his name as Uche Magnus, said the doctor jumped into the ocean immediately after he came down from his vehicle.

Magnus said: “I saw everything clearly from where I sat in the commercial bus I was in. The man came down from his jeep and jumped into the water instantly. We all screamed and begged the commercial bus driver to stop. I saw the man when he jumped but nobody could identify the spot where he drowned in the ocean.”

In the ensuing confusion, Ita was said to have called Oji’s mother and pastor. Both arrived the scene some 30 minutes after. It was learnt that the sympathisers at scene called the Lagos Police emergency unit, which deployed Rapid Response Squad (RRS) riders and marine police to the scene.

When The Nation got to the scene at 5:30pm, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), RRS Area Alpha Commander and Officer-in-Charge of Marine Police Team were coordinating rescue operation. The response team of the Lagos State Emergency Management Authority (LASEMA) was also at the scene.

At 5:50pm, Oji’s SUV and his driver were moved to the Adeniji Central Police Station.

When asked to explain how the incident happened, Ita, who was yet to come to terms with the incident, said could not utter a word as he was being led into the DPO’s office. He folded his arms and looked at the floor.

Oji’s mother was restless, as she was being consoled by the pastor. The pastor came out of the DPO’s office to pray beside Oji’s SUV. As he said the prayers, he moved round the vehicle with the hope that the rescue operation will bring the deceased back to life.

As at the time of this report, the body of the deceased is still being sought for.

    • @Braless why would the driver be a suspect. Read up mental health issues.’we the healthcare professionals are creating awareness of this. Mental health is not about being mad and walking naked on the street ‘it’s a neurological problem that can affect anybody,!any age and it’s no respecter of anybody . When they say money can’t buy happiness this what they meant ” mental Heath issue.

      • Read my article properly if u need clarification I will break it down for you. Mental health issue is a global issue and awareness of it is being created. Some celebrities in Nigeria are having conferences and programmes creating awareness of it and people that feel down and always in low mood should go for mental health asssesment and get help and support.
        Get me right I grieve for this chap cos he’s a professional colleague.
        I am only campaigning for mental health .

        • Pls send me msg via fb messenger I am a living witness of depression. People don’t know there is a drop of blood madness in every body. What makes u fight ur neighbour, what makes u shout sometimes. In fact u can easily reach me tru my email ID. Thnks

    • You are a*****to have said that, somebody committed suicide and you are arresting the driver, are you **** *****

  1. May be he has involve in evil something, or he has given wrong injection to an innocent soul, cos all dis doctors and nurses I don’t trust dem, or dey ask him to join cult and he refuses. And they treat his fuckup. Only God knows

    • Dear Teniola, who do you trust?

      I’d advice that you ensure to never visit any medical facility henceforth. Don’t purchase any product or service derived from orthodox medicine.

      Infact, desist from association with any medic & associates, for the entirety of your existence.

      & for your consumption, on behalf of all medics & paramedics; we don’t trust you either. As we are now glad to already know your stance, that you have no significant input & hence cannot advocate for better health for all citizenry.

      We pray that Orji finally rests in peace; which is what he probably soughts.

      For you, we pray for your enlightenment.

      ‘Ladi.

  2. Why should his driver be arrested if I may ask? According to the report, he received a strange call, asked the driver to park, came out of his jeep and then jumped into the lagoon.

  3. Don’t blame the driver, they shd check his phone Dats if he didn’t dive with it, they shd go to his network line telecommunication to track his records… It is well

  4. What kind of depression could make someone to take his life?I pray they find his body &may God console his mother

  5. Mmmm soo sad after spendin so much on him to get to dat stage God will comfort d poor woman n consold dem IJN Amen my case is different

  6. Could be mental health, could be spiritual, could be guilt, buh how can we tell… The information given says “he got a strange call”, that indeed is a strange call to have made a man of such caliber to go jump in the Lagoon. I’m a Dr too and psych is my area of special interest, and reasoning with the little information which is not enough to go by, I won’t say it’s a mental issue, I don’t mind accepting spiritual….

  7. These questions are rhetorical! But we got no ans! His pastor? Good was there any wearies? D Driver could give a clue! If married! D wife might too! Otherwise. Ya laa na udu! He may hv been!keeping a secret!

  8. Dearest​ Teniola, whom do you trust?
