In an essay titled ”A Virus Called Ebola and the Secret Club From Hell” (Premium Times, 17th August 2014) I wrote that Patrick Sawyer, the American/Liberian that brought the ebola virus to Nigeria ”was an evil man with an evil intention and purpose”. I went further by writing that: ”worst still he was not working alone. Some people, and I mean rich, powerful and well-connected people, were working with him. As a matter of fact they sent him on the mission”.
I stand by those words and I maintain, as I argued in that essay, that there is an ”Illuminati” connection to the whole ebola episode. I urge those that are skeptical about this and that have not read that write-up to google it and do so. This short contribution is something of an addendum to that essay. I was compelled to write it for two reasons. Firstly because the sheer depth, complexity and audacity of the conspiracy is so utterly appauling and mind-boggling that I believe that a little more detail is required to make the case. Secondly because Nigeria has just lost a woman of substance and one of her brightest and best, who happens to be a medical practitioner, to the ebola virus as a direct consequence of Sawyer’s sinister and nefarious activities.
Those that refuse to accept the fact that there is a hidden agenda unfolding here and that refuse to believe that there is a mysterious and diabolical force working behind the scenes ought to attempt to explain to us why it was that the Liberian Deputy Finance Minister, Mr. Sebastian Omar, gave Sawyer permission to travel to Nigeria even though he knew that he was infected with ebola and even though he knew that his sister had just died from the same disease. Sawyer was an ECOWAS official who had sought permission to travel to Nigeria for an ECOWAS summit.
He knew that he had ebola and according to his wife’s testimony he avoided contact with as many people as possible in Liberia before he came to Nigeria. Yet when he got to Nigeria he told the medical authorities that he simply had a fever and attempted to hide the fact that he had a highly contagious terminal disease which was capable of spreading throughout our nation and killing as many people as the infamous and dreaded bubonic plague that wiped out 60 per cent of Europe’s population between 1346 and1363. Those that doubt this thesis should explain away the contradictions and inexplicable behaviour of this strange and demented Liberian whose string was obviously being pulled from elsewhere.
Worse still they ought to explain to us why it was that after the demon landed in our shores, after the affliction was unleashed, after the damage had been done and after a number of our people had been infected with the virus as a consequence of their direct interaction with Sawyer, why the Liberian Minister boastfully and arrogantly told the world that he ”refused to apologise to Nigeria” for his error of judgement even though that error had led to panic, fear, disease and numerous deaths in our country. What a beast of a Minister this horrible little man called Sebastien Omar is. His words are not only unacceptable but they are also utterly outrageous. He is a harbinger of death and destruction and he ought to be held directly responsible for the evil and tragedy that has befallen our people. How I wish that the Federal Government and specifically our Minister of Health and Minister of Foreign Affairs had mustered the courage to give him an earful for his sheer insensitivity and wickedness.
The truth is that Sawyer, with the full backing of those that sent him, arrived in Nigeria with a clear understanding about what he intended to do. His deadly mission was simple and clear. Had it not been for the efforts of a very brave woman by the name of Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh, who refused to release him from the hospital in which he had been admitted, despite the enormous pressure that was brought to bear upon her to do so by the Liberian Ambassador and a few Nigerians in high places, Sawyer would have spread the virus, with it’s lethal package of death, to many other people in Lagos. This would undoubtedly have resulted in an uncontrollable and deadly epidemic and many lives would have been lost. Worse still this terrible plague would have also ended up in Calabar which was Sawyer’s ultimate destination. I suspect that after spreading his deadly load in Calabar he would also have touched Abuja as well. That way he would have ”covered” and ”treated” both of Nigeria’s two old capital cities and the new in a spectacular triangle and pyramid of death. What better way to effect his purpose? If he had succeeded in this monstrous venture Nigeria would have never been the same again.
Sawyer’s behaviour at the hospital was instructive and revealing. When he was told that he would not be allowed to leave, in a fit of rage and frustration, he removed the drip that was used to transfuse blood into his veins and he sprayed his blood all over Adadevoh and some of her nursing staff. He also poured his urine all over them. Such was his resolve to conclude his mission and kill as many Nigerians as possible. The only thing that stood in his way and stopped him from achieving it was the due diligence and professionalism of the First Consultants Hospital where he was admitted and where he was diagnosed as having ebola and the sheer courage, determination, fortitude and pure spirit of Dr. Adadevoh who understood the implications of releasing him and who stood her ground and refused to do so.
By that single act alone this noble lady saved the lives of thousands of Nigerians. Unlike others in her profession she did not go on strike, she did not abandon her post and she did not desert her staff, her hospital or her patients. I sincerely hope that she will be honored by the Nigerian people and by our government for her efforts and her gallant contribution. I am not in the least bit surprised by the remarkable role she played simply because she comes from excellent stock and she is the product of a noble and illustrious lineage.
She was the maternal great grandaughter of Herbert Macauly, the founder of Nigerian nationalism, a great and courageous nationalist, the scourge of the British colonialists, the founder of the first Nigerian political party the Nigerian National Democratic Party (NNDP), the founder of the Nigerian Youth Movement (NYM) and the founder of one the most formidable political parties in our history, the National Council of Nigeria and the Cameroons (NCNC).
She was also the maternal great, great grandaughter of Thomas Babington Macauly, the founder of the first secondry school in Nigeria, Christian Missionary Grammar School, Lagos (CMS Grammar School). She was also the maternal great, great, great grandaughter of Bishop Samuel Ajayi Crowther, the first African Bishop of the Anglican Church, the man who first translated the Holy Bible to yoruba, the man who first translated the Book of Common Prayer to yoruba, the first Nigerian to be awarded a Doctorate of Divinity from Oxford University in 1864 and the man who introduced christianity to the Lagos Colony (as it then was) and to most of south-western Nigeria. In terms of heritage, excellent blood lines and good stock you can’t do much better than that. She inherited this rich and illustrious ancestry from her mother who was a Macauly.
Her paternal bloodlines were no less distinguished. Her father Professor Babatunde Kwaku Adadevoh was the former Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos. He was a well respected, internationally-acclaimed and very successful metabollic physician and medical consultant. His father (Ameyo’s paternal grandfather) was a leading member of one of the Royal houses in Ghana whilst his mother (Ameyo’s paternal grandmother) was a distinguished Nigerian. Ameyo’s paternal grandmother was actually Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe’s father’s sister. That makes Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, the Owelle of Onitsha, the first President of Nigeria, the great nationalist and one of the most revered statesmen and respected politicians in our history her blood uncle.
Sadly Ameyo Adedovoh paid for her courage and fortitude with her life because she contracted the virus from Sawyer and she died a couple of weeks later. This was a lady of class and distinction and it reflected in all that she did till the very end. This explains why it was that when she discovered that she had been infected with the virus she insisted on keeping herself in total isolation in her home so that she would not infect anyone else until she contacted the officials of the Lagos State Ministry of Health and the Federal Ministry of Health and they came to pick her up. Right up until the end she was thinking about the safety of others rather than herself.
Such commitment, valour and fortitude is rarely seen. The truth is that she gave her life so that others may live. If there was ever a Nigerian heroine that was worthy of adulation and adoration it was this this deeply courageous and selfless lady. In her, her family members and son have everything to be proud of and so do the Nigerian people. I join millions of others in praying that her beautiful and noble soul rests in perfect peace as she joins her illustrious forefathers in the great beyond.
Permit me to take this opportunity to also commend the courage of Justina Obi Ejelonu who was a junior colleague of Adadevoh at First Consultants and who had helped to check Sawyer in and place him in proper care the day that he was brought to the hospital from Murtala Mohammed Airport with a fever. Like Ameyo Adadevoh, Justina Obi Ejelonu has since passed away as a result of being infected by Sawyer with the ebola virus. There are no words to describe the courage and the great sacrifice that these two ladies have made for their fatherland and for their people. May they and all that is their’s be blessed from generation to generation.
