Woman in Delta falls to her death after climbing flyover

In a heartbreaking occurrence on Saturday morning, a yet to be identified woman climbed the Ekpan-Refinery flyover in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State and tragically fell to her death.

The reason behind the woman’s decision to take such drastic action remains unknown, but it is however, suspected to be linked to the prevailing economic challenges facing the country.

A video lasting one minute and 14 seconds captured the heart-wrenching incident, showing onlookers holding their smartphones, witnessing the woman’s fatal backward plunge.

The flyover was bustling with motorcycles and other vehicles passing by, their occupants observing as the woman made her way towards the edge of the flyover.

The protective rails of the flyover had been tampered with by vandals, adding to the tragic circumstances surrounding the incident.

In a terse post accompanying the video, someone wrote:

“She killed herself by jumping off the flyover that leads to the refinery at Ekpan, a spot that has been quite familiar to me for decades now.

“Depression is real, and we would do well to regularly check on our loved ones, neighbours, friends, and colleagues, especially in these trying times.

“Depression is a disease that is actually treatable, and we must never, ever succumb to it.

“No matter what is happening, it is only temporary. Where there’s life, there is also hope, and that is one of the great mysteries of life.

May her soul rest with Our Lord Jesus Christ.”

After landing on the tarred road, those standing by were heard in the video lamenting her tragic action.

No official statement has been released to ascertain the identity of the deceased and her family.
