This is the Nigerian diplomat, Olu-Ibukun Koye who took Ebola to Port Harcourt!
Koye who had been quarantined in Lagos as having been in contact with Nigeria's Index case, Patrick Sawyer, escaped from the quarantine center only to appear in Port Harcourt. He was treated by Dr, Enemou , he recovered and returned t o Lagos. While the Dr. who treated him got infected and finally died of ebola.
Rivers State has since put over 100 people on watch while the widow of the Dr. has tested positive to the virus.

There are strong indications that the diplomat attached to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Olubukun Koye who escaped from quarantine in Lagos after testing positive to Ebola virus and travelled to Port Harcourt for treatment, an action that resulted in the death of the doctor who treated him (Iyke Enemuo) may face manslaughter charges.

This is coming on the heels of report that the number of persons under surveillance in the state for Ebola Virus Disease has increased from 100 to 160.

According to Thisday,Sources said  that the issue of Koye (a primary contact of the index case, late Liberian Partick Sawyer) who defied instruction not to leave Lagos after being placed in the isolation unit, was discussed at the Federal Executive Committee meeting on Wednesday and that the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation Mohammed Adoki was directed to look into the Nigerian laws and see how he could be sanctioned for his action that resulted in the death of Enemuo.
