ECOWASA staff of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has died in Lagos of the Ebola virus.

ECOWAS, which made the announcement in a statement on Tuesday, said the staff, Jatto Abdulqadir, 36 works with its Lagos Liaison Office.

It added that Abdulqadir, 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.

The commission said Abdulqadir had been under quarantine following that sad incident.

“The management of the Commission wishes to commiserate with Mr. Abdulqadir’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,” the statement said.
