51Years Old Woman Who Attempted Committing Suicide By Jumping Off 3rd Mainland Bridge, Arraigned In Court

Y'all remember Mrs Taiwo Titilayo Momoh, who was saved by Officers of the Lagos State Police Command, after she attempted to commit suicide by jumping off the Third Mainland Bridge, few days after a medical doctor, Allwell Orji, jumped into the Lagoon?

Oh well, she has been arraigned before Magistrate T. A. Elias, of the Ebute Metta Magistrate Court in Lagos, today, by the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (CIID), Yaba, on a one-count charge of attempted suicide.

Her charge reads;

   "That you Titilayo Momoh ‘f’ on the 24th day of March, 2017 at about 10:00 hours at Third Mainland Bridge, Lagos did attempt to commit suicide by jumping into the lagoon and thereby committed an offence under Section 235 Cap C17, Volume 3 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015."

The 51-year-old textile trader, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge of attempted suicide, and was granted N500, 000 bail. The presiding Magistrate, further ordered that the defendant be made to undergo psychiatric evaluation, before her next court appearance.
