Barely five days after a medical doctor committed suicide by jumping into the Lagos lagoon, operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) on Friday rescued two women who attempted to commit suicide.
The women, in two separate incidences attempted to jump into the lagoon from top of the Third Mainland Bridge and Carter Bridge in Lagos respectively.
One, Abigail Ogunyinka, succeeded in jumping into the lagoon at the Carter Bridge but she was rescued by divers who quickly fished her out from the lagoon.
The other woman, Taiwo Titilayo Momoh was rescued while attempting to jump into the lagoon from Third Mainland Bridge.
The two women gave financial problem as reasons why they attempted to commit suicide.
Ogunyinka said...
"I am owing two Micro-finance banks. One N60,000 and the other N90,000 and the banks have been troubling me. I have looked all through and there is no help. I don't want to face embarrassment. I took my househelp along with me and I told her we were going to the market. I took her along so that she would tell my people and those that I am owing that I did not run away with their money. I wanted her to tell them that I had ended my life but she was the person who raised the alarm when I plunged into the lagoon. If I had known, I wouldn't have gone with her because, I am going back to the same problem."
On her part, Momoh who also blamed financial problem to her suicide mission said:
"I am blaming the police and the people who rescued me. I am a trader in Balogun market and I took goods from four foreigners who trusted me. I am owing $10,000, $5000, $7000, $12,000 and $2,000 and I was swindled by a Bureau De Change operator. Since I was duped, I have not been sleeping. It is as if I am carrying a heavy load. Please, I  am owing Ritmam , Helen and Mathias. Help me to beg them to forgive me. I have not been sleeping .I see those that I am owing in the dream.  I am dying of lack of sleep.”




An elderly woman, named Abigail Ogunyinka has been rescued from committing suicide at the Ebute Ero end of the Lagos lagoon where she had already jumped into by fishermen.

In an interview with TVC News, the old woman, who sells amala said she decided to end it all after her she was unable to pay a 150,000 Naira loan she obtained from a Microfinance bank.

She added that the shame and embarrassment would be too much for her to face.

Asked why she went with a little girl, she said it was to ensure that someone would tell the family that she had jumped inside the lagoon.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Fatai Owoseni, explained that the police is making efforts to confirm the woman’s story from the bank in order to help her pay the debt.
Also today, the Lagos State Police Command rescued a woman Taiwo Titilayo Momoh who attempted to jump into the Lagoon from Third Mainland Bridge for owing N18.7 million.

It's just few days after Dr. Allwell Orji jumped inside the Lagoon.
What is going on? Oh Lord, bring succour to their hearts.


The Lagos State Police Command has rescued a woman Taiwo Titilayo Momoh who attempted to jump into the Lagoon from Third Mainland Bridge on Friday.
This is coming few days after a medical doctor, Allwell Orji jumped into the Lagoon from Third Mainland Bridge as his remains was retrieved from the water on Wednesday.
Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni told newsmen at the Rapid Response Squad, RRS, headquarters, Lagos Government Secretariat, Alausa, Lagos, on Friday that Momoh was in a taxi heading towards Oworonshoki on Third Mainland Bridge when she told the taxi driver to stop on the bridge.
According to Owoseni, the woman was about to jump into the water having removed her shoes and was wrapping her dress around her, when a police patrol team on a routine patrol on the Third Mainland Bridge sighted her and rushed to save her before she jumped into the Lagoon.

Ogun State Governor,  Senator Ibikunle Amosun has said described violence against women as a criminal act that must not be condoned. He noted that anyone found violating women would henceforth be prosecuted and treated as criminals.
Amosun made the statement after an advocacy walk against gender based violence (GBV) organised by Women Arise in collaboration with the state government.
The walk which started at the Government House through Omida and Oke -Ilewo was terminated at the June 12 Cultural Center, Kuto, Abeokuta, on Wednesday.
He added that the womenfolk played a great role in nation building and charged the state House of Assembly to come with a bill on violence against women.
Amosun said: 

“Anyone that violates the rights of women is a criminal, he must be prosecuted. We will not tolerate violence against women. We say capital no to rape, women battery, assault, child abuse and kidnapping of women. Everyday we are witnessing domestic violence against women; women being beaten to a stage of coma. This is not right.
“Women are our wives, they are our daughters and mothers, we must take care of them. When the home is okay, the local government will be okay, when this is okay, state will be okay and the nation will be okay. Thank God our lawmakers are here, they will expedite a bill on violence against women. As a government, we will support initiative like this, when there is no violence of any form in the state investors will come.”
