Why the lady who got stopped from jumping into lagoon today wanted to do it

The Lagos State Police has released an official statement, disclosing why the lady who was rescued today from jumping into the Lagos Lagoon by 11:25a.m wanted to do it.

The statement reads, “Shortly after the report of Mrs. Abigael Ogunyinka who was rescued by fishermen in Lagos Lagoon early Friday morning, another woman was today prevented at about 11:25 a.m from leaping into the Lagoon by the operatives of the Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos state Police Command.



“The lady, Taiwo Momoh, 58, a textile dealer in Lagos Island, had put off her shoes and was wrapping her dress around her when men of RRS 226 prevented her from
jumping.
The lady, who lives in Lekki Lagos, disclosed that she was pushed to committing suicide in order to put an end to her constant sleeplessness and shame occasioned by her indebtedness to three Swiss textile dealers.

“She noted that her problem started sometimes in 2015, when a Bureau De Change dealer carted away her N18.7 million she wanted to change to pay her foreign creditors.

“She added that the creditors had given her Swiss textiles worth several millions of naira, noting that she has maintained good relationship with the creditors for more than 15 years.

“Her condition she said became compounded when robbers invaded her shop in Lagos Island carting away most of the textiles that was left with her.

“She emphasized that most of the time, she has been having sleepless nights and seeing the ghosts of the creditors whenever she was alone.

“Momoh, a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God disclosed that on several occasions she had attempted to see her Parish Pastor to identify with her problem and for the church to help her raise money to meet her Swiss Creditors in order to assure them that she would pay their money.


“She noted that she was only allowed to see the second in command, which has yielded no fruits.
“Added to all these, my first son, whom I felt would stand by me and console me abandoned me. By the time I’m gone, maybe he would come around and inherit what is left.

“I don’t want to use my debt and death to disturb anybody. I was in the shop this morning. I have looked everywhere and estimated what is there.
“I think, with my house, a bungalow, those I am leaving behind can still live comfortably. I want to go and meet God. This world is empty.

“I won’t because I want to get rich join cult group. I go my way and I don’t socialize unnecessarily.
“I was a Muslim, I have because of this problem been jumping from one faith to the other. The problem is too much for me to bear. I want to go back to God.

“That is why I have dressed very simply. I am ready to meet HIM. If He cannot address my problem on earth, let me go back to Him.”

But I bet you that she probably paid tithes, but now them cannot help her.
Jesus advised that we be as wise as serpent.

This is sad especially when she tells her story and connects it with her church... There are people who really need help and we turn 'em away to face the ones who don't need help.

Here is a "she", I bet she didn't tell her whole story. Women always have plenty to say and they hardly tell it all the first time. It would be worse. Pity!

The one in the Bureau, burglars and even the pastors involved should find the word karma and gently digest it's meaning.

This shows the failure of the church.

It is too bad that the woman was abandoned by those close to her... Suicide is not the way out even though it might seem an option to those who are really depressed and does not have idea where help shall come from... The religious leaders who are to encourage those with suicidal thoughts are just selfish and greedy bunch of people...
