As first reported by YNaija, Dr Ameyo Stella Adadevoh of First Consultants Hospital has died from the Ebola Virus Disease.
Since the news of her death hit the public sphere, social media users have been writing tributes about the doctor who single-handedly saved the country from the Ebola epidemic by refusing to cave in to the pressure of the Liberian embassy to allow Patrick Sawyer leave the hospital.
While some say Nigeria should sanction the United States, others state the Federal government should give the late heroine a posthumous national award.
Here are the top 10 tributes:

Rest in Peace Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh. You stood firm to contain the Ebola virus. You put yourself in harm’s way to save millions. #RestEasy
