After battling with ovarian cancer for months, Mayowa Ahmed has been confirmed dead at a hospital in South Africa, where she was flown to for surgery.
Mayowa’s cousin, Habeeb Odufuye, broke the news of her death on his Twitter account around 1.23pm on Sunday, saying,
“Ahmed has left us in this world. On behalf of the entire Ahmed’s family, we say thank you to everyone that was part of #SaveMayowa – RTs, donations. God bless you all. She tried, we tried, but God’s will prevailed. By Allah, in whose hands our lives are, Mayowa Ahmed has left us in this world. We pray that Jannat (paradise) becomes her home.”
May her soul rest in peace.
