After battling Ovarian cancer for a long time, Ahmed Mayowa,31, died on 21 August, 2016 in a private hospital in South Africa...and was said to have been buried in the country immediately since she was a Muslim...
A source disclosed to Enconium
Weekly that the need to bury the
remains of Mayowa in South Africa
where she finally gave up the ghost
was not in any way connected with
the inability of her family and those handling her pathetic situation to
bring her corpse back to Nigeria as
being bandied but largely due to the fact that she was a muslim and there was no need delaying her burial anymore.
Read according to the source;
“Shukurat Mayowa Ahmed died in
South Africa and has since been
buried according to muslim rites. Not that there was no money to fly her corpse back to Nigeria. After all, the police have lifted embargo on her bank account to enable the family access enough fund to take care of her and every other expense
concerning her. And now that she
couldn’t survive the ailment, the best thing is to bury her immediately in South Africa so far she was a muslim. I think that was what happened. May her soul rest in peace.”
Mayowa was flown to South Africa
on Thursday, August 11, 2016, for
intensive care after some kind-
hearted Nigerians raised about N100 million for her treatment and all. The controversies that trailed the fundraising were settled by the
police. But she was reported to have passed on 10 days after.
