Police detain Toyin Aimakhu over #SaveMayowa ‘scam’

29 July 2016, 15:19

Lagos - Nollywood actress, Toyin Aimakhu was on Thursday  at a police station in relation to a campaign she spearheaded to raise funds for the surgery of Ahmed Mayowa who is said to be suffering from Stage four  ovarian cancer.

The #SaveMayowa campaign was launched some days ago and Toyin decided to lend her voice to the cause when she was told the patient was a huge fan of hers.

However, things took a drastic turn today when reports surfaced that the campaign was an alleged scam. There were reports stating that doctors had already written off Mayowa’s case as a dead end.

One of the NGOs supporting Mayowa’s cause, Lifestake Foundation posted videos of Toyin Aimakhu at the police station.
