The Lagos State Police Command has verified the report that a woman purportedly leaped into the river from the moving boat after boarding a boat from Igando, Lagos State, to Ogun.

When SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the command’s spokesman, confirmed the incident to reporters on Sunday night, rescue crews had already begun looking for the woman.

He claims that on Sunday at around 8:00 am, a man named Rasaq reported the case to the Igando Police Division.

Rasaq said that at about 10:00 pm on Saturday, one Folashade Nimotalahi, of yet to be known address, boarded a boat from their Isuti Jet, Isuti Road, Igando in Lagos, going to Totowu in Ogun.

“They were 12 passengers on board. Suddenly, the woman removed the life jacket she was wearing and jumped into the river.

“She left behind one nylon bag containing a bottle of sniper, Alimosho General Hospital cards and some drugs,” the spokesperson quoted Rasaq as saying in his report.

The PPRO said that detectives from the division immediately visited the scene of the incident.

He added that a search party had been contacted to recover the corpse, while investigation was ongoing as they made efforts to contact the family.
