Nigerian Girl Commits Suicide In New York by kings11ng(m): 6:00am On Nov 15, 2014
Mounsurat Adeoye, the Mother of teen Omotayo
(pictured) who committed suicide after allegedly
cheating on a high school exam, is reportedly
placing the blame of her daughter’s death on the
high school she attended and has filed a $10
million lawsuit against the city of New York.

NewsOne reports:
"When Omotayo got busted peeking at her
cellphone while taking a German test, the teacher
allegedly snatched it away, accusing her of
cheating and yelling at her. Omotayo reportedly
burst into tears while apologizing profusely to the
instructor. A few hours after the emotional
exchange between the teacher and Omotayo,
according to police investigators, the young girl
scrawled the following words on her German
language exam that read, “I just want to go away
forever on the bottom of the river.”

"After Omotayo handed in her test paper and asked
to go to the restroom, she never returned to the
classroom.

"Instead, the teen walked to Manhattan’s Hudson
River’s edge in Harlem, placed her identification on
a rock, then plunged in to the murky waters."

According to Mounsurat, the school knew that
Omotayo had emotional problems -- since she had
attempted suicide before -- but they did not take
proper care of her.

Do you think the Mother has a lawsuit?

Yeah charge the school for emotional recklessness or something along that line. If she were white, the school would have been more tactical in handling her knowing that she has attempted suicide before.

That's exactly the same thing they said before Boko Haram started using 'born and bred in Nigeria' suicide bombers. I've known quite a good number of people here that committed suicide too, it just didn't make headline news.
