Men of the Rapid Response Squad, RRS, rescued her on Friday afternoon from jumping into the Lagoon from Third Mainland Bridge.
The woman 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 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 on Lagos Island carting away most of the textiles that was left with her.
Momoh emphasized that most of the time, she has been having sleepless nights and seeing the ghosts of the creditors whenever she was alone.
She noted that she was only allowed to see the second in command, which had 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”, she stated.
“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,” she narrated.
