How medical doctor, Allwell Orji took his life after previous suicide attempts (Fresh Details)


Dr. Allwell Orji, the medical doctor who took his life last Sunday by jumping off Third Mainland Bridge, had attempted suicide a number of times.

According to The Sun, who visited his family home on Odunukan Street, close to the University of Lagos, it was found out 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 said, adding, “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.”
Another neighbour said some concerned people had gone to the police station to beg for the driver’s release, as he is innocent.
Orji had on Sunday committed suicide on the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.
Report had it earlier today that the body of the medical doctor has been found.
However, the spokesperson of the Lagos State Police Command, Dolapo Badmos, has quoted the mother of the medical doctor as saying that the body earlier recovered was not her son’s.
