The body of Adetutu Adedokun, a Department of State Security, DSS, unarmed instructor who allegedly jumped inside the lagoon along the Third Mainland Bridge corridor, has yet to be recovered.?
Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, Permanent Secretary of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), also stated that investigations have failed to produce the driver of the car she boarded prior to the unfortunate incident.?
?He also stated that the response team’s focus has shifted from rescue to recovery, and that they are now observing the tide and relying on locals for any useful information.?
Ebitime Joshua, a fisherman at the Ebute Jetty, stated that local knowledge has shown that any living thing that finds its way into the water body sinks straight to the sea bed.? He went on to say that the food consumed by the individual involved prior to the incident usually determines recovery.?
