The late doctor died of Ebola on August 19, 2014 after being infected by Liberian-American, Patrick Sawyer
Dr. Stella Ameyo Adadevoh will finally be buried on Friday, September 12, 2014.
The late doctor died on August 19, 2014 after being infected with Ebola by Liberian-American, Patrick Sawyer, the index case.
The Nation reports that the burial will be preceded by a memorial service at Holy Cross Cathedral, opposite City Hall, Lagos by 10am.
A Night of Tributes has also reportedly been slated for 6pm on Thursday, September 11 at Harbour Point Hotel, Lagos.
According to reports, a family member said:
“It was basically a cultural thing that informed us to decide to obtain her ashes for the burial. Committing the ashes to Mother Earth will strictly be a family affair; hence we have put up the Memorial Service and a Night of Tributes”
Another family member allegedly said that they had decided to bury the late doctor’s ashes because, “in the future, people (society) may be taunting us and her son that his late mother has no grave.”
Dr. Adadevoh was one of the health workers who attended to Sawyer and is credited with keeping him confined despite pressure to release him from the First Consultant hospital where she worked.
May her soul rest in peace.
