Brother of late Mayowa Ahmed, Habeeb Ahmed, has said Nigerian media contributed greatly to the death of his sister, Mayowa, who died in a South African Hospital on Sunday August 21, 2016 after losing a running battle with Ovarian Cancer.
Habeeb spoke exclusively with a Celeb Police Agent this afternoon in a telephone conversation and regretted the contributions of some overzealous bloggers and actors who delayed her sister’s treatment overseas. He said in a trembling voice which still nurses grief and anger that; “We won’t talk to any media house no matter the pressure they might be putting on us to talk because they led Mayowa to where she is now. The only reason that will make us speak to any media house is if they would promise us that after speaking, Mayowa will come back to life.”
It would be recalled that immediately she was confirmed dead, Nigerians stormed the social media in anger directed at blogger, Linda Ikeji and actress, Toyin Aimakhu for the roles they played in delaying Mayowa’s overseas trip for treatment.
Linda had posted on her blog that the SaveMayowa campaign fund which had generated over N81 million and $100k was a fraud and opined that Nigerians were being duped. The false alarm was compounded by actress Toyin Aimakhu who invited the Police to investigate the funds, a process that took another two weeks before the Ahmeds were cleared.
