Abuja dedicates road to late Stella Adadevoh

Nigerian government has again honoured, Stella Adadevoh.

 Ahmadu Bello Way, near NAF Conference Center, at F.C.T, Abuja has been dedicated to the late Nigerian physician.

Mrs Adedevoh was the physician who discovered that a Liberian, Patrick Sawyer, who arrived in Nigeria five years ago, was infected with Ebola.

She died after contracting the disease while trying to treat Mr Sawyer and prevent the disease from spreading. 

Before her death, Ameyo Stella Adadevoh was the Lead Consultant Physician and Endocrinologist at a private hospital in Lagos, Nigeria where she worked for 21 years. 

She had never seen Ebola before but was able to diagnose and contain Nigeria’s first-ever Ebola patient in July 2014.
