Brave Ebola doctor – Stella Ameyo Adadevoh‘s ashes were laid to rest at a private burial ceremony yesterday (Sept. 12) in Lagos. The night before (Sept. 11) family, friends and well-wishers came together to honour the heroic doctor at a Night of Tributes held at Harbour Point Event Centre, Lagos..
Her only child Bankole Cardoso who is also the founder & CEO of Easy Taxi Nigeria paid a moving tribute to his mom at the Night of Tributes, read it after the jump
As we mourn the loss of my Mum, a daughter, sister, wife, niece, cousin and aunt- we are humbled and overwhelmed by the great outpouring of love and gratitude we have received from everyone.
My mum paid the ultimate price to contain the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in Nigeria and as the accolades grow louder; my heart swells with equal measure of great pride and great pain. Still we are a praying family and as we say farewell, our hearts are at peace in the belief that all events occur with the consent of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Thank you for your many tributes and compassionate words of comfort. The calls from the Nigerian public, for a lasting tribute to mark her professional commitment leave me inspired and grateful that my dearest mum (Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh) was given this opportunity to serve her country.
My Prayer is that The Almighty God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, will be with you and your loved ones, keep his banner of love over you and wrap His unfailing arms of protection around you always.
