Do you know that the 51-year-old textile dealer at Balogun Market, Taiwo Titilayo-Momoh, who attempted to jump into the lagoon on the Third Mainland Bridge, Lagos, was on Monday hauled up before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court?
Question is, for what?
It was reported that if she was eventually found guilty she would be jailed for life.
Doesn’t that mean that those who rescued her should have allowed her die instead of getting her a life jail sentence for wanting to kill herself?

Taiwo was arraigned on a charge of attempting to commit suicide, pleaded not guilty.
The unfortunate woman had wanted to take her life after been duped of N18.7m by a Bureau-de-Change operator sometime in 2015.
The offence, the police say, contravenes Section 233 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015.
However, she was asked to bail herself with the sum of N500,000 with two responsible sureties in like sum.
Where would the poor woman get that now?
