A picture posted to be Funmi
There are reports that the Save Funmi Lawal campaign going round may be fake as a message purportedly from Funmi Lawal, who is believed to need about 4million Naira to treat a cancer on her shoulder, has reportedly debunked news that she is sick and needs help.
Few days ago, a broadcast went round which read, "Hello people! pls help my friend Funmilayo lawal resently diagnos of a MALIGNANT SARCOMA, a kind of cancer at the shoulder region.
"The cancer has become so extensiv wch might affect some oda parts of the body if a surgery is not done as soon as possible. It could nt just cost her hand but its life threaten.
"Pls help, the doctors required dt she should go abroad 2 do it within 4weekz wch will cost $15000(4Million). Pls help save my life. Acc No. GTB FUNMILAYO LAWAL 0002655164. Pls no amount is too small. plsss. God bless u."
Debunking the story, a broadcast was purportedly sent from Funmi this morning. "The BC below was sent by a fraud. Pls RBC dis until it gets back to d source of it...If u think by spreading false news u r havn fun,I will not curse u,God himself will judge you.
"If u av gotten any bc abt me bin sick & needing pples help, pls ignore. Its my enemies dat re @ work 2 spoil my gud name. I am nt sick in anyway. Am as fit as d fiddle. I av just completed ramadan peacefully.
"I pray dat every attempt of d devil 2 bring us down will go back 2 sender insha Allah bi qudirah lola osu tasese pari yi. Ao ni saisan o lagbara olorun. 10x 2 u all dat cald 2 confirm, my friends & well wishers...iretiola I was on my praying mat wen u cald o, nd pls my good ppl learn 2 confirm d very truth b4 any BC, luv u all emi noni FUNMI LAWAL."
Kindly RBC #SaveFunmi
A source close to Funmi told Nigeriafilms.com
that Funmi is hale and hearty and that she is surprised about the broadcast going round about her.
Another lawyer friend of Funmi disclosed to us that the whole thing is not a scam. He claimed that Funmi is actually sick and needs 4million Naira for medical treatment. We put a call through to Funmi, but our calls were not picked. She kept aborting our calls.
Meanwhile, Nollywood star actress, Funke Akindele-Oloyede would have been a fallen victim of 'Save Funmi' fraud as a youngman identified as Ayanniyi Kayode allegedly sent her a direct message on Twitter claiming Funke should donate some money to his personal account in order to save Funmi instead of the initial one.
This, as Nigeriafilms.com
gathered, the boy claimed that the publicised bank account dedicated for donation was fake but his was the original account.
This was quickly discovered as fraud by Funke, who we learnt has reported the case to the police.
Interestingly, we learnt that Don Jazzy has reportedly donated 2million Naira to Funmi for the cancer treatment.

Good evening all, kindly note that the #savefunmi campaign is legit and Funmi didnt send any Broadcast claiming she is hale and hearty, i wonder who @nigeriafilms' sources are. Funmi is suffering from Sarcoma and she has been told by doctors to embark on surgery immediately. Of a truth, yesterday a young man named Ayanniyi Kayode tried to play a fast one on Funke Akindele by sending her his own account details as the account for Funmi. this was discovered immediately and the young man was shutdown. Please note however that the campaign is still on, the target of #4m is still yet to be reached, your funds will go a long way in helping Funmi to overcome this cancer. The account details : Funmilayo Lawal 0002855164 GT Bank. Thank you all. God bless us all. Reply this thread

if there is no clear evidence that Funmi is sick and need financial help, don't send any money, heaps of 4*9ners around. Reply this thread

It is a pity to Nigerian Banking System when anybody can come to Bank and open any Account in any Name without adequate verification, It doesnt make sense if somebody will open account in another Name and withdraw it. The bank manager of where that Fraudulent activities take place shoud be prosecuted in the Court of Law If there is any in Nigeria. If a problem happen the victim will Curse or Pray for his of her oppressor. GOD is clean and doesnt do evil. Reply this thread

I think a proper investigation should be made. The name, Funmi Lawal is quite popular. If u check, you may find many more by that name that are also lawyers, so that if it is all true, the poor girl does not miss the help she could have got. Reply this thread

Please @nigeriafilms.com just lost their credibility by even posting the "funmi is not sick" news. To make matter's worse, they re-edited the BC to suit their twisted false claims. What reputable information medium does that?
Dear Nigerians, The original BC (The BC below was sent by a fraud. Pls RBC dis until it gets back to d source of it...If u think by spreading false news u r havn fun,I will not curse u,God himself will judge you) was debunking the claim by the fake i***t "Funmi Lawal" and it actually quoted the BC disclaiming Funmi is not sick .
Besides, the Funmi Lawal with cancer is a xtian, the i***t sending the BC is a muslim, where is the correlation?
Nigerian Films or wateva you call urself, it is beta u take down this story cos you made Nigerians who would have helped change their minds, and for that alone, you will suffer.
A media site such as yourself should verify correctly any information before posting it.
