#SaveMayowa alleged scam: Is this true?

The #SaveMayowa fund moved me, and i had planned that i will give my contribution as PositiveMate, before the it was announced that the money needed was successfully raised. I was happy not just for Mayowa but for Nigeria,for once the social media hype that has kept many young Nigerians idle is going to save a life.
But few hours ago I came across insinuations that the whole thing or partly was a huge scam!
The sources discovered that the whole fundraising for the sick lady was a scam. Linda ikeji on her blog claims to have been in touch with quite a few people, and they insist the family knew Mayowa was beyond help but still went ahead to raise money for her.
The  Ahmed Family in a statement this afternoon, said they are taking Mayowa to a hospital in Abu Dhabi but when they started raising money for her, they said they wanted to take her to Emory hospital, Atlanta, who had given them a quote of $100k. You will find the letter from Emory Hospital after the cut.
Mayowa's family did indeed contact Emory Hospital, Atlanta to make inquiries and they were told that they would make an initial deposit of $100k after which it would cost them between $3,000-$30,000 per session, and a patient requires between 10-50 treatments.
But as of today, there's no letter from Emory Hospital inviting her over. Mayowa does not have a US Visa and the cancer has even spread to her liver.
Some of Mayowa's family members are being detained at Area D in Mushin while they investigate the allegations.
I really do hope this will be investigated and adjudged false,it is too soon to kill the hope that could have come for others in Mayowa's shoes. Mayowa does not deserve this drama, even she were not to live, she deserves to go in peace and not in turmoil. I would like to give a thumbs - to Toyin Aimakhu for her contribution and efforts, I know she is a drama queen,but this was indeed a positive drama. She'll get an honorary membership from PositiveMate soon #wink.

Sexual Assault: Catwoman defends herself against Batman

I decided to do this quick recount before it becomes over taking by event…ehm, before I forget to do so. No time to read over for errors. I'm serving it fresh and hot. On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…

Tupac Shakur’s stepfather up for parole after spending 30 years in prison

Mutulu Shakur (born Jeral Wayne Williams, August 8, 1950) is an American black nationalist and acupuncturist. He was a proponent of the Republic of New Afrika and a close friend of Geronimo Pratt.

Shakur is best known for his conviction on racketeering charges following the 1979 prison escape of Joanne Chesimard (Assata Shakur) and the infamous $1.6 million robbery of a Brinks armored truck in New York in which a guard and two police officers were killed. It was later found that an illegal project by the FBI, COINTELPRO, aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and neutralizing what they considered domestic political organizations, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., had targeted Mutulu as well as many of his comrades.  Mutulu Shakur is the stepfather of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur. He was captured, convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison for leading a revolutionary group responsible for a trail of bloodshed, including the slayings of an armed guard and two New York polic…

"This has helped many countries to develop when they had issues of downturn in their economy. I believe that having over N3trn available to stimulate local production going on now. "One of the things that we have done today is also trying to shorten the proc…
