Ameyo Stella Adadevoh, the doctor who died after treating Patrick Sawyer, a Liberian-American, who came into Nigeria with Ebola, has been honoured in Abuja.
A road in the Federal Capital Territory has been renamed after the physician.
Many Nigerians had called for her to be immortalised as she was believed to have prevented the spread of the deadly virus. She reportedly insisted Sawyer remained at the hospital, First Specialist Hospital in Lagos, despite pressures from his country and the patient himself.
The Ameyo Adadevoh Way is located around Ahmadu Bello Way, close to the Nigerian Air Force Conference Centre.
Adadevoh, along with Justina Echelonu, a nurse, died in August, 2014.
