Titled, 'Bring Timmy Home', the page says that:
"Our beloved brother Timmy Ajiboye passed away 28/05/2018 while on holiday with a couple of friends.
"This go fund me is to help raise money to support his family with funeral arrangements and to bring his body home so he can get the proper send off he deserves.
"Any amount contributed will be much appreciated.
"God bless you all."
