Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has taken to social media lament after a mother whom she refused to help for the medical treatment of her ailing son lost the child.
The mother of one disclosed the mother had sent her an Instagram DM a while ago asking for financial help for the treatment of her child who was sick, but she ignored the message because of her past experiences with people.
Tonto Dikeh had however refused to help the troubled mother because she thought it was a scam, as she had recently fallen victim to a scammer who used the same pity story to get almost half a million naira from her.
Sadly, she got news that the woman’s son had died, apparently due to lack of medical care, and she now regrets not helping the woman.
“I will hate myself for a very long time… See the amount of damage one person’s lies and choices have caused… My heart goes out to everyone going thru one thing or the other!!
“I will beat myself up for this for as long as I stop feeling guilt but the person who made me ignore that message I pray you suffer more than the grieving mothers.
“Few weeks ago, I helped out a random fan with almost half a million naira (370k) cause they had mad challenges and she showed a baby and all. One week later I just wanted to check on them. BOOM! The account had been deleted. I took it with good faith.
“I was so pissed, I felt used and taken for granted but I moved on… Fast forward to 2 days ago, I saw a similar message, seeking for medical assistance. The way I deleted and ignored the message ehn. This morning I opened my DM, the mother told me that her son died. My eyes hurt from crying. My heart aches so bad.” She wrote.
