#RIPMayowa More On Mayowa Ahmed As Nigerians Mourn

Mayowa Ahmed – Nigerians familiar with the story of Mayowa Ahmed are mourning the loss of the young ovarian cancer patient who yielded to the disease today, Sunday, August 21, 2016 at age 31.

She died in a South African hospital where she was receiving treatment after Nigerians donated generously for her to have a surgical procedure abroad.

It would be recalled that after Nigerians raised N81 million and $100k for the #SaveMayowa campaign, her travel plans were temporarily scuttled by a false alarm raised by popular blogger, Linda Ikeji and actress, Toyin Aimakhu that Mayowa and her family were scammers.

After two weeks investigation, however, the Lagos State Police cleared Mayowa’s family of all charges of fraud as they confirmed that the controversy was caused by ‘misunderstandings over the modalities for dispensing and controlling the money’.
