Mayowa’s family has officially responded to allegations that #SaveMayowa is a scam. Her cousin, Habeeb recorded this video message on behalf of the family. In the video, he answered various questions which have been raised by the public.
Mayowa herself decided to publish the first video on Instagram without her family’s knowledge
The family confirms that the funds will be used only for Mayowa’s treatment and they still have hope despite the advanced stage of cancer.

In the video, he also talked about the letter he received from the hospital stating they are willing to accept Mayowa’s case . The family had already spent over 10 Million Naira on Mayowa’s medical care prior to the online fundraising campaign
He further added that the family is open to getting a trustee for the funds so they will not have access. They are calling on companies with this competence to get in touch, showing emails evidence can illustrate their correspondence with Flying Doctors and NMC Abu Dhabi with an ongoing visa application has been filed.
The family understands that questions have been raised and are willing to answer any questions.
