It was the day actress, Toyin Aimakhu cried foul, alleging that the #SaveMayowa cause was all a con planned by the family members of the reason behind the movement – Mayowa Ahmed – a 31 year old stage IV cancer patient who allegedly needed $100,000 for urgent treatment abroad.
The Nollywood actress raised hell at the Lagos State University
Teaching Hospital (LUTH), promising to get to the bottom of things as
she had been a major part of the campaign to raise funds for Mayowa who
she described as her ‘fan. She felt distressed and displeased with the
opinion that she had been used as an accessory in defrauding Nigerians
of their hard-earned money.
After her remarks at the premises of LUTH went viral, Toyin decided
to withdraw herself from the whole controversy, making no mention of the
cause even till today after Mayowa was reported to have passed on to
the great beyond and Nigerians flooded their timelines with #RIPMayowa
Since the news of Mayowa’s demise hit the internet, Aimakhu has
stayed away from social media. Her last Instagram post was 9 hours ago.
Her Twitter account has been dormant since November 2015.
Calls to the actress have not been returned.
Whatever happens though, she played a huge role in getting Nigerians
involved in #SaveMayowa and she will be forever remembered for standing
up when it counted.
