vaccineA doctor at the First Consultant Hospital, Lagos, Ladi Okubadejo, on Thursday appealed to the U.S. government to urgently send any kind of medication in its possession on Ebola virus to Nigeria.

Mr. Okubadejo, who spoke at a news conference in Ikeja, said his appeal was aimed at saving the life of his colleague, A. S. Adadevoh who is presently down with the virus and other Nigerians who are at risk of getting infected.

The First Consultant Hospital was where the late Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian-American, was diagnosed with the deadly Ebola disease.

Mr. Okubadejo said that Ms. Adadevoh, a Senior Consultant Physician and Endocrinologist, was one of those who diagnosed and was treating Mr. Sawyer of the ailment when he was first brought into First Consultant.

“She treated Patrick Sawyer because she was patriotic only for her to be infected with the virus. I am appealing to the U.S. government to send whatever medication they have to Nigeria fast to save Adadevoh. She does not deserve to die. So, this is the reason for this appeal,” Mr. Okubadejo said.
