#SaveMayowa|Cancer Patient Mayowa Ahmed Dies. #RIPMayowa

Mayowa Ahmed, the ovarian cancer patient  with the campaign #SaveMayowa is dead.

Nollywood actress, Toyin Aimakhu had drawn nationwide attention to Mayowa after she solicited funds for her surgery and regularly visited her at the Lagos state University Teaching Hospital, Idi Araba where she was admitted.

An estimated N32m was donated in funds in an online campaign  to #SaveMayowa.  At some point, there was controversy with stories insinuating the #SaveMayowa campaign was fraudulently set up by her family to dupe members of the public, an allegation that was vehemently denied by close relatives of Mayowa.

Mayowa Ahmed eventually travelled abroad for surgery courtesy of donations raised.  

May her soul rest in peace.
