Linda Ikeji now:
According to an eye-witness named Chukwuma Ani, who witnessed the incident and
was one of the men who pulled Teebillz off the bridge, he told LIB exclusively
that around past 9am this morning while driving on the Lekki-Ikoyi toll bridge, a
car hit his own from behind, damaging his car. He said he came out of the car
and approached the driver of the vehicle that hit his. He didn’t know who the
man was (it was Teebillz) but he said he berated him for hitting his car and
asked the man to come out and assess the damage caused to his car. The man
looked at him and told him to leave…that he was there for a reason. That he
was planning to commit suicide and Chukwuma Ani would hear about it later…
Not knowing who the guy was or understanding why he was
talking suicide, Mr Ani said he kept insisting that the driver must come down
from his car and see the damage he had caused to his car. He said he noticed
alcohol on the floor of the driver’s car so thought the man was drunk. He said
while shouting and berating the driver for hitting his car, the guy just
suddenly drove his car with speed to the front.
Ani said he got into his own car and gave chase and was surprised to see the
driver of the car parking his car in the middle of the bridge as other cars
drove past. He said he parked in front of the driver and approached the man
again, telling him that he couldn’t even apologize for hitting his car and was
instead trying to drive off. He said as he was berating the man, he (Teebillz)
got down from his car and walked to the bridge railing.
He said he stood there wondering what the driver was trying to do and it was at
that point that two other cars approached them. He said as he was trying to
figure out who the new comers were, Teebillz had moved to the bridge railing
and was trying to jump. Mr. Ani said a light skinned guy came out from the
first car and began running towards Teebillz screaming and that was when he
realized what was going on..
movie” Ani told LIB “the man held the railing and tried to jump over
it and that was when the yellow man held him and started shouting for help. The
two of them nearly fell into the water. I quickly joined the yellow man to pull
the guy out and while we were struggling with him, one PSquare twin (Peter
Okoye) and Banky W joined us to pull the man out ” Ani said
Peter Okoye to confirm he was there but he refused to say anything “Even
if I was there, I can’t say anything about it” he said.
We hear Teebillz is doing okay now and is surrounded by family and friends.
