The Lagos State Police Command has declined comments on the remaining
amount of the N85 million raised to save 31 year old Shukurat Mayowa
Ahmed, who passed away a couple of days back in a private hospital in
South Africa after losing battle to Ovarian cancer. It added that it
will be too early delving into a mater like that, now that her family is
still in deep mourning.
Speaking with ENCOMIUM Weekly on Friday, August 20, 2016, via its
Public Relations Officer, SP Dalapo Badmos, the command said it will be
inhuman discussing such a matter shortly after Mayowa’s death whose
family hope was to restore her health.
“We can’t comment on that now. Mayowa was a human being, and we need
to also join her family in mourning. But at the appropriate time, we
will step in.’
Meanwhile, the command had waded into the controversy that trailed
the #SaveMayowa campaign when the two front liners in the fund raising –
Nollywood actress, Toyin Aimakhu and Aramide Kasumu of Lifestake
Foundation suspected foul play between Mayowa’s family and the Lagos
University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), alleging it’s all a scam.
However, the command, on its investigations, it absolved all the
parties involved in the mater, citing communication breakdown as the
cause of the misunderstanding that ensued in the last-minute struggle to
save the deceased.
