#SaveMayowa is reportedly a scam. She was sick but beyond treatment, and her family stole money from Nigerians

These are the kinds of occurrences that make Nigerians unwilling to help Nigerians.

Just two days after it was reported that Nigerians have been kind in their donations to cancer patient, Mayowa Ahmed, for the surgery she needed for ovarian cancer, LIB has learned that Mayowa and her family scammed kind hearted Nigerians.

You see, Mayowa is really sick. She truly has ovarian cancer. She’s admitted at LUTH but she didn’t need money for surgery, because doctors had told Mayowa she was beyond treatment and no hospital in the world could treat her as she was extremely far gone. Mayowa had reached stage 4 and her doctors had already informed her family she wouldn’t survive it and had advised them to take her home. Her family instead used her situation to raise money from Nigerians. The doctors in LUTH have also denied giving her family a medical report advising her to seek treatment abroad.Pulse-Toyin-Aimakhu-and-Mayowa

Toyin Aimakhu, who was one of those who spearheaded the fundraising, has reportedly stormed LUTH with the police. Some people also went to the family’s home and the place is locked up.

#SaveMayowa raised over $100k on GoFundMe and millions of Naira.
