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...
it's obvious she had other issues.
caught cheating only triggered her mental instability.

Been in her shoes before,no one would understand how she felt tho!

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.

Pray you never encounter a judge like me with such moronic suit.

so cos she has emotional problems, she should be allowed to cheat?

i know some lecturers in naija that wouldnt only yell, but give u a dirty slap.

mum, ur daughter weak on d inside, even yelling can push her over.. haba..

u never scolded her while she grew?

Cut the woman some slack please...yes,she cheated,but the teacher shouldn't have yelled,for crying out loud,dts a young girl with a fragile emotion...it seems you don't know people or u find it hard caring about them,some people av fragile emotions,my younger sister who is 16yrs oldonce had a slight misunderstanding with another older female who is abt 20yrs old and my sister cried her eyes out for two days and harboured anger for a week,she is young and maybe went overboard,but d point I am making this,we all have different temperaments and for us to co exist in love and tolerance we must as much as possible learn to see them,understand them and handle such properly,I dnt knw if u av kids or young ones around especially ladies,they have fickle emotions and once its nt properly addressed could be replaced with very harsh emotions turning some into pyscopaths,serial killers,junkies and such like...the teacher is absolutely wrong for yelling at her,I believe d school has laws against cheating and punishment for cheating doesn't include being yelled out...some people especially kids hate being called out....

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?

The mother must be a lunatic.

If I was the judge, I would bankrupt her dumb arsse if she ever brings such a case my way by awarding costs claims to the defendants.

Read this



Court papers filed by Omotayo’s mom also say teachers had immediate possession of the note but that staff “...failed to prevent (the teenager) from leaving the school.”

Adeoye also accuses school staffers of waiting hours to call 911, not examining video cameras to see her departure, not starting an immediate search and not notifying her treating social worker.

She also faulted the school for not verifying that she was in fact cheating and for taking away her cell phone.

Had the teachers prevented this girl from leaving to go to the bathroom as she claimed,this same mother and lawyer would sue them for kidnapping and assault plus battery.

Educational system though undecided



The use of calculators was once a crime in JAMB


So cellphones should be admitted during exams?

Why learn when you can take out your smartphone and google and then you just "copy and paste" or better ask someone to answer the questions via email. undecided

Allow her cheat?

Is it a joke or something?

You take out your cellphone during exams, you are out. Simple! There is no need to verify anything. The use of cellphones during exams is forbidden.

In Germany, when a student does not put his cellphone on the teacher's desk before the exam and the teacher finds out, he leaves the examination hall. Bye bye, you are out, failed. Go home.

Logical!

Please don't play that emotional stuff here
The question is ,"was the school responsible for culpable in her death"
And I say absolutely not
A child cheating should not be allowed to cheat
She died because of her mental illness so the mother shouldn't be trying to make profit from her death

Its the truth, I'm not playing emotional stuff...

do you know the things the teacher would have said to the girl
do you know what she was going through at home and at school

she died because of what she was going through.... stop commenting out of ignorance, you obviously haven't seen anyone who is suffering from depression... none of your relatives or close friends have suffered from depression so shut the f*ck up...

Abi o!

Maybe she herself should be arrested on some whimsical excuse that maybe her child was depressed and desperate to cheat in an exam because of too much parental pressure put on her to be a high achiever in school.

Yep. Lets all bring moronic grounds for lawsuits.

Moronic women. She should pray it is not someone like me that is the judge of the case. Looking for emotional pity to make a fortune? I would bankrupt the lunatic!

I guess she was neglected because she was a nigerian(or black)...but then,her up-bringing might have been one of the reasons y she killed herself#in nigeria most parents train their children to be responsible and independent and not to be fragile/chicken hearted...#our mind strong pass Yam...I wonder what kind of emotional problems a child goes tru @ 17(that's if she wasn't being bullied by her peers)
Re: Nigerian Girl Commits Suicide In New York by Nobody: 7:58pm On Nov 15, 2014
She was caught cheating, instead of her to have thanked God to still be able to write the exam...she felt it was best to kill herself and waste her parents' money?

The teacher might not be aware of the victim's health issues. Then again, there was no point yelling at the girl. She could have just reported her to the governing board for the case to be handled properly and not embarrass the poor girl.

You guys don't understand. She is just a child, she probably doesn't know how wrong it is. Its a medical disease just like depression.

If she was a white kid, the handling would have been better. No one supports cheating, but we all don't know the history of this girl - if she's been abused or not...

May we not have such a child in Jesus name.
