A major road in Abuja has been named after Dr Stella Adadevoh, the woman who played a major role in stopping the spread of Ebola across the country.

The medical doctor who played a major role in preventing an Ebola epidemic in Nigeria in 2014. She is credited with having curbed a wider spread of the Ebola virus in Nigeria by placing the patient zero, Patrick Sawyer, in quarantine despite pressures from the Liberian government.

She died in August 2014 after she was also diagnosed with Ebola, which she got from Patrick Sawyerr.

Several calls have been made by Nigerians for the deceased medical doctor to be adequately honored by the Federal government.

A road has now been renamed after Dr Stella Adadevoh, about six years after she died from the disease in Lagos.

The road, located along Ahmadu Bello Way, close to the Nigerian Air Force Conference Centre, was renamed after her.
