Yesterday, funeral rites for late Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh began with a night of tribute.
Her family, friends, loved ones, and well wishers were present at the event to pay tribute to the brave doctor, who lost her life to Ebola while treating Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian-American who brought the deadly disease to Nigeria.
All paid tribute to Adadevoh, speaking of the selflessness, altruism, and commitment to her work she showed even during her final days, Vanguard reports.

Among the well-wishers were Senator Oluremi Tinubu, Dr. Mike Abah, Dr. Efunbo Osekun, Dr. Yemi Johnson, Mrs Violet Ketshow, Dr Bode Koyombi, and others.
“It is good to be good, whatever we do today will definitely speak for us. Every family who witnessed the tributes for Adadevoh will definitely get home and ask question: what will they say after I left this world,” said Daniel Ijason, the catholic priest who delivered the sermon.
A memorial service in her honour was held today at Holy Cross Cathedral at 10 am.
