Another Nigerian who had contact with the late Liberian, Patrick Sawyer in Lagos state has died.

The deceased was among those who assisted the late Liberian when he came to Nigeria for a conference last month.

The 36-year-old man was placed in isolation few days after Patrick Sawyer was killed by the deadly virus in Obalende area of Lagos.

His death came few days after a newly married nurse who had primary contact with the Liberian passed on.

Read the official press statement by ECOWAS on this latest casualty of the killer virus below.

“The ECOWAS Commission announces with deep regret the passing of a staff member of its Lagos Liaison Office, Mr. Jatto Asihu Abdulqudir, aged 36. Mr. Abdulqudir, a Protocol Assistant, was among those who assisted the Liberian delegate to a regional meeting Mr. Patrick Sawyer, who died from the Ebola Virus Disease at a Lagos hospital on 25th July 2014.

“Mr. Abdulqudir had been under quarantine following that sad incident.

“The Commission wishes to use this opportunity to express its gratitude to Nigerian government authorities and others who contributed to managing the late official while under quarantine. The Management of the Commission wishes to commiserate with Mr. Abdulqudir’s family and colleagues and prays for the repose of his soul.

“Before this sad event, the Commission working in collaboration with Nigerian health authorities, had disinfected all the facilities of the ECOWAS Lagos Liaison Office as part of precautionary measures to safeguard the health, safety and security of staff members, and will continue to monitor the situation.

“Management has also intensified awareness campaign among staff on the deadly virus and uses this opportunity to invoke the spirit of solidarity and mutual assistance.
“The Commission wishes to reassure staff of all Community Institutions all over the entire region that it is taking all necessary steps to guarantee their health and safety.

“Furthermore, Management enjoins all staff members and community citizens in general to intensify the observance of personal hygiene. They should also report any suspected case to health facilities and seek medical advice or attention for the effective containment and defeat of the Ebola disease.

“On the directive of regional leaders, ECOWAS has already set up a Solidarity Fund to fight the disease and has solicited the support contribution of Member States and development partners to the Fund to rid the region of the virus.

“The ECOWAS Commission wishes to reiterate its continued commitment to support Member States in confronting this deadly virus.”

Lagos State Ministry of Health should make sure all his family members are tested for Ebola.

May his soul rest in perfect peace.

    pay for damages? to who? the stupid nigerian embassy that gave him the visa or the airine that allowed a sick man on a plane or a corrupt country that cant protect its borders talkless of the citizens? to me, the whole thing was a set-up by powers that are bent on enslaving the black race. I dont blame america for not giving africa the drug, i blame the foolish african leaders that are only known for corrupt practices.
