Who will explain to people like me how that sick man was allowed to travel to Lagos and DIE ON all Nigerians soon after arrival? – Tola Adenle

August 2, 2014


Ghana has already banned flights from Nigeria, and soon, Nigerians and all travellers from the country are going to add another scarlet letter to their foreheads in addition to being home to Boko Haram.

I’ve asked many questions from many people since that man DIED ON Nigerians, including:

Why was that man who died soon after arriving in Nigeria allowed to travel since he was already so sick if it was not deliberate?

Was Nigeria sent a sick ebola man so that the demographic spread of the virus can show an African spread?  CNN was quick to show a “spread” that had 270-something right on top of a map of Nigeria while the reporter was reporting the case of the cross-border man who DIED ON Nigerians in an “outbreak across West Africa.”

What was the purpose of the man’s visit in Nigeria?

While I feel great sympathy for the family of the man who died, and my heart bleeds for the care givers who are victims, I have not seen outrage in Nigerian newspapers about what the heck is going on.  Neither do I have any idea of what the Nigerian government has done or is doing about this tragedy.

Luckily, this is a blog and while I feel a high sense of responsibility about anything I write here, I do not carry the burden of journalists, especially in America who have to play the politically-correct card always very well.  I’m not given to believing conspiracy theories which made me dismiss claims about the AIDS virus being a biological warfare against minorities in America but planted in Africa during the presidency of Late President Reagan and Late Prime Minister Thatcher.

Now, what do we make of a very sick man in far-away Monrovia hopping on a plane and travelling to Nigeria and within several hours of arrival, he DIED ON Nigerians of the dreaded ebola virus?  And suddenly, a terrible virus in Liberia and Guinea that has killed hundreds in those countries suddenly killed a man in Nigeria and the virus has become an “outbreak across West Africa?”

If Nigerian health authorities can make the information about the unfortunate man whose death has led to two most unfortunate people who had contact with him being detained and tens being watched for symptoms public, was he known to be sick of ebola, who he had planned to visit, the purpose of his trip, et cetera, I will dismiss any conspiracy theory.

    My hypothesis: On entering the plane, the Liberian was towards the end of the incubation period of the Ebola virus infection. Then, just before landing in Lagos,he became suddenly sick with the first few symptoms of high fever, nausea and vomiting. The diagnosis was probably not immediately made. We must congratulate the doctor who made the diagnosis in a private hospital just before the terminal symptoms of bleeding.

      Dear Prof.,

      Thanks for your explanation which I have no problem believing as it comes from a medical person. My questions of where in Lagos or the country he was visiting remains; so do the others because I read that the man had taken care of a sister who had the virus before it struck and killed her. We Yoruba say: ajẹ ke l’ana ọmọ ku l’oni …” Sort of talk of the devil!

      I think it’s kudos to the doctor and the private hospital where it was isolated considering the bad reputation that most private hospitals in Nigeria have.

      My regards, and I continue to await explanations on the man’s Nigeria planned itinerary.

      Dear Femi,

      Thanks. I’m sure there are many uninformed people like us who would really like to have to those questions and, perhaps, more. We cannot sit back and let calamities be thrown our way.

      If an English guy catches ebola in Monrovia and goes back home, would any news carry it that “ebola has spread across Europe” simply because another European – say, from Russia – catches it somewhere?
