Before the Ebola crisis, I never heard of Dr Ameyo Adadevoh (The Consultant Physician and Endocrinologist at First Consultant Hospital). However with her tragic death at the hands of Ebola, I have heard and read more about her. From close family friends who had the opportunity and privilege of knowing her, she was a good person and very committed to her duty and country. Given the way she stopped Patrick Sawyer from leaving the hospital upon discovery that he had Ebola, her good-heartedness, patriotism and desire to protect humanity are unquestionable. Most unfortunately and sad, she died from her genuine efforts to protect us Nigerians.Read More

I don’t like early-morning phone-calls, but this one was a distress-call from Femi-Kevin. “Do you know that the doctor at First Consultants that contracted Ebola is Dr. Adadevoh?” he asked. He had to tell me this twice because his call woke me up. I tried not to believe it. In a very selfish and foolish manner, I wished it were not her but someone else. But if it were someone else, that someone else would also be somebody.Read More
Anselm Odinkalu spoke the mind of some of us in his tribute, but I will add mine.
My wife and I have been so devastated. Ameyo was our personal physician. It is very difficult to imagine that she is gone.
