Late Adadevoh’s Cousin Might Be Infected With Ebola Virus



A relative of the late senior doctor, who spoke to a correspondent of Punch Newspaper in Lagos on Wednesday at the First Consultants Hospital in Obalende, has blamed the Federal Government for her death.

The cousin who spoke on condition of anonymity alleged that the Federal Government had mismanaged her case by not giving her any of the experimental drugs that were available for the management the disease.

He expressed anger that Adadevoh would have survived the disease if the experimental drugs available, including Nano silver, were administered on her.

According to him, he is one of the secondary contacts that are being monitored as he had had contact with the deceased the week Sawyer was admitted at the private facility.

He said, “We had been shouting that she was in a critical condition since. The Federal Government did not listen to us. We were expecting them to have used the Nano silver or any of the other drugs they had to manage her, yet they did not use them.

“If the World Health Organisation could have approved that other experimental drugs be used due to the magnitude of the problem, why should the Federal Government hold back? If they had used all they had at their disposal to treat her, she would have survived.”


Another colleague of hers, who is also a consultant at the hospital, described the deceased as a diligent and thorough professional.

The doctor, who also craved anonymity, said, “She was very particular about the standard of medical services in the country. She was never ready to compromise the management of a patient. I’m not surprised that she did not discharge Sawyer, and that she alerted the state health authorities. Not many doctors would have done that.”
