     Popular Nollywood actress Toyin Aimakhu who had helped solicit for donations from Nigerians using her celebrity status to save cancer patient, Shukura Mayowa Ahmed’s life is regretting her actions.

     They said it was a fake report.”Aimakhu reveals that she had to lie to Mayowa’s family that the wife of Lagos state governor was interested in sponsoring her medical bills for her to realize she has been used.

    “It started from her ovaries and moved to her liver, which gave her liver metastasis. Basically, it is not curable, and if it is curable, it is the just Grace of God.When I got the story, I took it up, and I called the CMDto get her to LUTH. Before she got to LUTH, they were already waiting for her. When I brought her to LUTH, the first thing the doctor said to me is that no airline will carry her, because she is too frail to travel.  Before I brought her to LUTH, she was at home. It was almost as if they (the family) already knew what the case was. You know how the doctors will tell you that the cancer is already in the last stage, let her stay home.

    She explained further what the family said:“They said they had already called the hospital in America, they needed $100,000. They mailed it to me,I looked at it. It now dawned on me that the hospital in America said treatment is going to cost $3,000 –$30,000 per treatment, and she needed 10-50 treatments. Technically, what she needed was N150 million, but that wasn’t what they raised. All they just picked was the $100,000. The hospital also said to them that she needs $1,780 for an invitation. There was no invitation, no visa, nothing! So they already knew what they were doing from the on set.”

      Really hard to do good in
      Just like all those corporate
      beggars forming rubbish on
      Lagos roads.
