Linda Ikeji clears the air on #SaveMayowa saying the campaign was genuine.
The blogger put forward the part she played in publishing a story that the quest of raise money for cancer patient, Mayowa Ahmed, was a scam.
Linda ran a story with claims that Mayowa’s family was using the cancer patient as a front to raise money. And intended to keep the money to themselves since the patient is terminally ill.
She says she got the information from “people who were directly involved in raising money for the sick girl”. And she tried investigating but got conflicting reports.
Investigations by the police reveals the SaveMayowa campaign is not a scam and was done with the best of intentions by the family.
The family raised 85 million naira through the campaign.
Mayowa is now in South Africa for further treatment.
