A relative of the late Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh , has come out to state that the Adadevoh  family disapproves of the upcoming Steve Gukas movie "93 Days."

The much anticipated Nollywood film was inspired by the late Adadevoh of First Consultants Hospital in Lagos, and her courageous team who joined hands in fighting the spread of  deadly Ebola Virus Disease.

According to the relative, Kwami Adadevoh, the script was shared with the family only after it was completed.

"The inaccuracies in the movie do a great injustice and a disservice to the life works of Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh. Specific accounts in the script are incorrect and Mr. Afolabi Cardoso (husband) and Bankole Cardoso (son) are depicted in the movie without their consent.

Further, the use of private information, as it relates to the medical records of the deceased, is morally reprehensible," he wrote.
