Cancer Patient Mayowa Ahmed Dies In South Africa

save mayowa campaign

The lady suffering from ovarian cancer, Mayowa Ahmed, has been reported dead on Sunday, August 21, 2016.

Miss Ahmed reportedly died at a hospital in South Africa.

The late Miss Ahmed was flown to South Africa some days ago via an air ambulance for treatment after over N80 million was raised for her treatment.

Before she was taken abroad, she had been receiving treatment at LUTH, Lagos.

Few weeks ago, before her trip to South Africa, there was a controversy concerning the money raised by members of the public for her treatment.

This came after one of the campaigners, Ms Toyin Aimakhu, claimed the lady’s family was not being sincere about the whole issue.

This was after a blogger in Nigeria, Ms Linda Ikeji, reported on her platform that the whole #SaveMayowa campaign was a fraud.

The police waded into the matter and ordered a restriction into the account of Miss Ahmed to allow an investigation into the alleged scam.

After concluding its probe, the police found out that there was no fraud involved in the campaign and the embargo earlier placed on the account was lifted.
