(video) Man attempts suicide on electric pole

A man in Lekki, Lagos east senatorial district on Thursday, attempted suicide on an electric pole where he spent over five hours after the pressure of being broke became too much for him.

The man identified as Fredrick Gino, and said to be a Cameroonian had climbed on top of an PHCN electric pole at Adebisi Ogunniyi Crescent, Lekki Phase 1, as early as 5.30am.

He was first spotted by a resident, who raised alarm, and drew the attention of others to the scene.

Officials of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LSEMA), the Lagos State Fire Service and other emergency workers including policemen from Marako Station, also arrived on the scene of the Lekki suicide attempt while electricity officials cut off the power supply.

According to eyewitnesses, when persuaded to come down, Gino refused, and told the shocked spectators that he would only climb down if he got N5m, explaining he was having financial challenges, and finding it difficult to afford eating a meal a day.

However, he was later rescued but sustained injury during the operation by the emergency workers, and was rushed to Oba Elegushi Health Centre.
