A motorist has stirred reactions online after he spotted a young man on the Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge and decided to record him.
The guy who was bare-chested sat on the bridge rails facing the river and it is suspected that he was nursing the intention of jumping inside.
In the video which has gone viral on social media, the guy called out to him and advised that he should not commit suicide.
He encouraged him by saying that there is still hope, but the purportedly depressed man did not seem interested in what he was saying as he did not turn back.
The motorist known on Twitter as @OLUWA_FLEMING; ”Just saw this guy sitting like this on lekki ikoyi link bridge just now….I no know wetin dey sup…”

In reaction, some said he should have helped attempted suicide, others wondered why he was recording.
@JoysSparkle; Why u dey video am from afar? What if he jumps as you’re recording?
@heis_gentle; If you really cared you could have walked up to him and had a conversation to know what up. Everybody these days be seizing every opportunity they get to post content online, it’s insensitive.
@emmiceen; There is always hope, suicide is the worst option. Take a deep breath and re-trace your step and you will find where u went wrong 💙🫂🙏
