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.
True. Emotional problems is not a license to cheat but they should have been more sensitive in handling the matter.

ur statement is not good enof.do u knw anytin dat has to do wit emotions,we all av our different kind of emotions, so don't penalize her for her actions. The teacher should av been the one to knw how to manage her students cause he or she(teacher) has been taught how to go abt such situation cause in that environment they understands wat is called "EMOTION"

This is one of the effects of not beating your children. When children are beaten while young, little traumas like this won't have much effects on them, not to talk of killing oneself for paltry issues like cyber bully. Mthcheew undecided

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?

This happened a while ago
What is she suing for?
Will it bring her daughter back
Why are people always looking to blame others
The girl had psychiatric problems and had attempted suicide before
She doesn't need to blame anyone or try to make money out of her grief

They knew she had problems and you didn't?
If the school didn't take care of it,how about you,who should be more concerned about her health?
Aren't you her mother?

You must b very stupid for this nonsensical comment
You think depression and pressure is a joke?

What stops her from killing herself after the exam in the hall filled with cops?
Why do you need cops in an exam hall?? Are the students ex cons or convicts?

Stop rationalizing the awkward act in your kangaroo university.
This is no joke.

RIP to the dead

Bro, sorry I have to chip in. I get your point but the fact still remains that a kid born and raised in Nigeria will most likely not respond to an allegation of malpractice like that. Come on! We all know these things na. I think issues like this is why it is not that good not to have a true rugged mentality. In Africa, you don't have to be 40 to be, there are many rugged kids everywhere.

Imagine a kid that killed herself because of an allegation of malpractice! What will such do if s/he should lose both parents? It's crazy!

Sometimes ago, I was watching a film with a friend - given birth to in and had all her education in the UK. The film got to a stage and she was crying seriously. As in, she wept. I be like babe; "On top this film or another one?"

Truth of it is that all these things have to do upbringing. Well, we could say theirs is a perfect upbringing but the disadvantages of such could be heartbreaking, just like we have seen from the story. May she fare well over there...

Re: Nigerian Girl Commits Suicide In New York by spiceemman(m): 7:36pm On Nov 15, 2014
Attempted and successful suicide are a very complicated issue people. It's a rarity for children brought up in ghetto to attempt suicide, it's usually the kids from rich parents. People like me from ghetto and poor parent don't need to consider suicide, we've been through a lot and the "e go better" prayer forever lingers.
Sadly many kids from wealthy family are over-pampered and don't get to see the real world from a tender age. It's all easy for them and any occasion of difficulty they can't cope.
They've not been taught to struggle, it's all been handed over to them easily and it's not their fault. Parents should learn to teach the children the art of surviving. Make them hard and prick their conciousness to the realisation that the real world is hard. I feel bad seeing even young rich kids already depressed and sad at the world. I've heard lot of these because my sister teaches in an international school in lekki and many of the stories she comes home telling are beyond shocking.
Rich parents gotta do more to make their kids ready for the real world bruh.
That said RIP to the young lady. Suicide is a temporary solution to a permanent problem. angry

There are many sides to a suicide story.....but one sure thing I know is,its rare to see a born and bred Nigerian commit suicide.
I don't think she was born and bred in Nigeria. Suicide is very common in developed country. The mental health unit in children's and adolescents hospitals are full with children with suicidal thoughts, schizophrenia, ADHD e.t.c.

I would blame the mother though, much depends on her. If you bring your child up abroad the way oyinbo dey bring up their children i.e no yelling, beating, flogging, spanking, slapping e.t.c then they should expect their children to act like oyinbo kids.

That is why it is very important to teach our children their language and culture just like South Asian families(Indians and Pakistans). Their children born and bred abroad, never been to their country of origin speak their mother tongue fluently and have excellent knowledge of their cultures.

But our own kids become too westernized.

The school/mental health institution would share in the blame too, that is where the lawsuit came in. They should have handled the child delicately or put are through some sort of structured learning. Especially when it was known to them that she had mental health issues in the past. RIP to her.

A child cheating should not be allowed to cheat

Upon all the practiced strictness by your so called school, you're still a dunce. If you were Monsurat, you wouldn't have only committed suicide, you would killed everyone in Manhattan before committing suicide.
