TeeBillz posted this morning seems to have really been a cry of help as he was rescued from committing suicide on the Lekki-Ikoyi bridge this afternoon.
Linda Ikeji reports that an eyewitness named Chukwuma Ani, witnessed the incident and was one of the men who pulled Teebillz off the bridge.
According to the eyewitness, TeeBillz ran into his car on the bridge so he went out to confront him. He confronted the driver which he did not know was TeeBillz at then.Â He challenged TeeBillz and demanded T comes out to check the damage to the car but according to him, TeeBillz responded by telling Mr. AniÂ to leave him alone and that he was there for a reason.
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 driverâ€™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 couldnâ€™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.
While he was still confused and trying to piece everything together, Mr. Ani said two cars approached them and the occupants ran out, shouting at TeeBillz. These two wereÂ Peter Okoye and Banky W.
â€œI thought I was watching a movie,â€ According to Mr. Ani.
â€œThe 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 P-Square twin and Banky W joined us to pull the man out,â€ Ani said
According to Linda Ikeji, a call was made toÂ Peter Okoye to confirm he was there but he refused to say anything. â€œEven if I was there, I canâ€™t say anything about itâ€ he said.
