The family of Mayowa Ahmed have released a statement denying reports that the #SaveMayowa campaign was an elaborate scam.
The family insists that although she is still admitted at LUTH, she is only receiving treatment ahead of her 7hr trip to Abu Dhabi where she is expected to undergo surgery.
They went further to explain that they are in touch with doctors abroad and are only awaiting Mayowa’s Visa for travel documents so as to commence their journey.

We have been called by friends, family and everyone who has our contacts that our raising funds for Mayo is a scam. We were also informed that some persons had made statements concerning her state and her ability to pull through this ordeal.
• Mayowa is presently in LUTH receiving treatments that will prepare her for 7hr trip to Abu Dhabi. We have also engaged the services of the Flying Doctors to accompany her on the trip based on recommendation by the Doctors in LUTH (Form attached)
• Mayowa is receiving treatment in LUTH to allow her be able to travel as advised by the Doctors in LUTH and she has been transfused to help improve her PCV
• The funds are solely for Mayowa’ s treatment and for no other reason.
• We await her Visa for travel documents to commence the journey as we are in touch with the doctors abroad and they are awaiting her arrival.
We appreciate the contributions made by Nigerians on this journey. Mayowa will live to tell this story and you shall be one of the audiences by His grace.
Please support us with prayers as you will surely be told the success story as we have not given up on Mayowa living her life and we will never give up until the work God has started is finished.
Thank you once again and will provide updates on her treatment and procedures.
The Ahmed Family
