A young woman in Delta State made an attempt at suicide by plunging into a river from the Oghara-Benin bridge.
According to activist Israel Joe, who revealed this in a Facebook post, the incident took place on January 16, 2023, on a Monday night.
Mr. Joe claims that the woman, who was purported to be a student at the Delta State Polytechnic Otefe, Oghara, was saved by a group of police officers and neighbourhood hunters and taken to a hospital.
“A young lady attempted Su¡cide about two hours ago, jumping from the Oghara-Benin bridge into the river,” he said.
“I, in the company of my friend Jay Cee were returning from Benin when we saw someone jump from that high bridge into the river. We had to park on top of the bridge and raise an alarm.
“Fortunately there were some locals under the bridge that ran into the river heading straight down at the point she fell into.
“We also called the DPO Oghara CSP Hassan who mobilised men to the scene almost immediately. She was rescued and has been rushed to the Oghara Teaching Hospital.
“We do not know the reasons for her actions but gathered that she is a student of the Delta State Polytechnic Otefe, Oghara. The DPO and his team along with some federal hunters rushed her to the hospital.”
