Dr. Allwell Orji jumped off 3rd mainland bridge on Sunday and apparently attempted suicide a number of times.
According to The Sun, his family said that Orji jumped down from the two-storey house four years ago. He was saved by agile neighbours.
“Four years ago he attempted to kill himself and, thereafter, had tried doing so on a number of times.”A man who pleaded anonymity added,
“Since then, his family had been monitoring him. We don’t know the kind of sickness he was suffering from, but we knew he was being monitored. That was why he was assigned a driver to take him around.”
“He was such a gentle boy, who never made any trouble. His family has lived on this street for long; his father died four years ago.
“Perhaps the driver who drove him didn’t know about his condition because he was engaged about three months ago.”
