A yet-to-be identified young man has been pronounced dead, after jumping from the seventh floor of the 1004 Estate in Victoria Island, Lagos State.
Reporters At Large learnt that the incident occurred on Thursday, February 4, 2021, at about 8:45 a.m., when operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) were at the estate on operation.
No one had an idea of the reason behind the act carried out by the deceased.
The story was confirmed by the police spokesman in the state, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi.
Describing the incident as unfortunate, Adejobi said that preliminary findings showed that the deceased was not a target of the EFCC operatives.
He was said to have been a guest in one of the flats at the estate.
“We will try and trace his identity, so as to relay the incident to his family and take necessary police action,” the PPRO said.
