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.

“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.

    This is so good to hear that she was properly honoured by so many. May the good name she left behind not be erased from this minds of the countrymen that she and some of her staff died protecting.
