How I survived Ebola – Late nurse' fiance, Dennis Akagha speaks

Dennis Akagha, the fiance of Justina Ejelonu, the First Consultant Hospital nurse who died after being infected with the deadly Ebola virus by Liberian Patrick Sawyer, in this exclusive interview with Vanguard spoke about how his late fiancee contracted the deadly disease, how she lost their unborn child while battling with Ebola, and also revealed that Justina had just landed the job at the hospital and met Sawyer on her first day there. He also spoke on how he got infected with the virus and how he finally got discharged. Fimd the in-depth interview after the cut...


On his relationship with the late Justina, Dennis said;
"The  truth is that Justina and I were not legally married, we were planning for our traditional marriage in October and she just got this job. She was a qualified graduate nurse and got the job at the First Consultant Hospital in Lagos. She resumed duty at the hospital on the 21st of July, while Patrick Sawyer was admitted at the hospital on the 20th. He was her first patient. She was one of the nurses that nursed him. She was pregnant and so her immune system was weak, which made it easy for her to contract the disease. On that first day which was a Monday, she was having some pregnancy symptoms, but I just encouraged her to go because it was her first day at work. Sawyer was her first patient. The next day, Tuesday, she didn’t work on Sawyer. Wednesday and Thursday, she was off. Then on Friday, Patrick Sawyer died. They didn’t know he had Ebola, it was three days later that they realized it was Ebola" he said
On how he found out she had contracted the deadly virus, he said
"It was after Sawyer died that she told me she nursed him but that she was on gloves. She even thanked God that she didn’t have direct contact with him. The fever continued and we thought it was just pregnancy symptoms and even when she went to her hospital, they confirmed the same thing. She took drugs and ran tests, yet it persisted. At night, she was usually cold and feverish and her body temperature was usually very high. At a point, I began to suspect that she had contacted the virus. I did some research on the disease and realised that she was having similar symptoms. On the 14th of August, it became serious, she started stooling and vomiting. I had to clean up everything. All of a sudden, she started bleeding and she started crying that she had lost the pregnancy. I had to call her relatives and other people. The bleeding persisted and I had to clean up everything. Initially I was not wearing gloves because I felt I had already been exposed to the virus. But later I cautioned myself and started wearing nylon on my hands. But I couldn’t stay away from her. I kept consoling her. Even when I took her to the hospital, she wanted to hold me and I told her to also consider my safety. She managed to hold herself and was able to find her way out in a pool of her blood. We chartered a taxi to the hospital, but first, I took her to First Consultant Hospital because I felt they should know more. When we got there, I was directed to IGH, Yaba. I told the taxi driver to take us there. The driver wasn’t even aware of what was going on as he took us to Yaba.  Justina was on the floor for 30 minutes before she was attended to. She was screaming that she was going to die. She was seriously bleeding, she had to come out of the taxi and lay on the floor. I ran around, trying to get doctors to attend to her. After everything, they took her in, took her blood samples and the following day, the result came out that it was Ebola. They washed the taxi with chlorine and also bathed the taxi driver and I with chlorine spray. At that point, the taxi driver knew what was going on, he couldn’t even take me home because he was so scared. I had to look for somewhere to pass the night in the hospital. Early the next morning, I left the Hospital. The taxi driver is alive today, nothing happened to him. We have been checking on him and the last time we spoke he told me, he was fine" he said.
On what happened after he was exposed to the virus, Dennis said;
"14 days after I was exposed to Ebola, my temperature rose from the usual 35.2 degrees centigrade to 37.2. The Lagos State government gave me a thermometer the day I dropped Justina off at the centre. It took them two straight weeks to visit my home and to disinfect it. Before they came, I had already done the much I could do. I used bleach and detergent to clean the whole house, furniture and clothes inclusive. We should be reminded and educated that a healthy person with Ebola virus cannot get anybody infected, except if the person is sick and totally down with the virus like what happened to Sawyer and to my late wife-to-be, Justina. I contacted the virus because Justina was very sick and I was taking care of her without any appropriate protection. When we knew what we were dealing with it was almost too late for me as I had already contacted the virus" he said.
On what was done for him after his visit to the Isolation centre, Dennis said
"The Lagos State government sent health professionals to check on me regularly to know how l was doing or if l had the signs of the virus manifesting. So they used to come around to check on me. At some point they created scenes with their visits. I was embarrassed and I was stigmatized. I complained severely to them that I didn’t like what they were doing. Then, one Saturday they visited again, I complained about the pains I was beginning to experience; excruciating pains around my waist. I started praying and asking people to pray for me. Before this time, I believed in the Holy Communion, so I usually take it daily and do feet washing. I was going to the hospital daily to see late Justina. Initially, I was seeing her through the window and she would say I should take her out of the hospital. She complained of lack of care. Perhaps, Justina would have survived the virus, if not for the state she was in. Her immune system was down because she was pregnant. Along the line, she had a miscarriage and lost the baby due to the Ebola virus disease. The doctors, who were supposed to do an evacuation on her couldn’t do it because they claimed that an evacuation was too risky as she was heavily infected and may pass on the virus to another person. Since nothing was done even after the bleeding had stopped, it led to more complications for her because the already dead foetus somehow got rotten in the womb and started a damaging process which led to further complication. Meanwhile, she was still stooling and vomiting and since nobody could dare to touch her, she was left on top of her excretions even when she couldn’t do much for herself due to her weak state. She was given her incisions and other drugs. I believe if some people survived Justina should have been one of them. At a point, I wished I was a doctor myself; I would have taken the risk of doing the evacuation because it really affected her".
On the last day he say his late fiancee, Dennis said 
"The last day I saw her, I had to go inside the ward because she was so unkempt as nobody attended to her. At that time, the quarantined patients were in the former facility where there was no water and she had messed up herself again. I had to look for water to clean her up, change her pampers and arrange her bedding. Since I was aware of what I was dealing with, I got myself protected while cleaning up the place. I made sure she looked better than when I saw her. Justina was shivering the last day I saw her, one side of her stomach was already swollen, and her legs were also swollen. I prayed for her.At a point, she needed oxygen and the hospital couldn’t provide it. Her friends had to provide it. That was the last day I saw her. On Sunday Morning, I called her line like I usually did before visiting her, but she didn’t pick her calls. When I got to the hospital, I was told that she was dead".
Asked if late Justina was taking his calls while she was at the Isolation center, Dennis said;
"Yes, in fact she called me that last day and I knew she was going to give up, because she was saying some funny things. She said I should tell my people to go and meet her father so as to finalize our marriage plans, that she’s leaving that place.
Asked if he was not scared that he would die form the illness seeing that his Fiancees health was deteriorating, Dennis said;
"I personally don’t believe in taking medications. I had the mentality that I wasn’t sick. I told the government what I was experiencing. On the day they came to pick me up for treatment, all of a sudden, my temperature went back to normal. The shivering and pains were all gone. So they decided that they would be checking on me. But it got to a point people stopped selling things to me. It was as if the government got a report that I shouldn’t be around. So, they came and said I should go with them that they wanted to take my blood sample. I went with them and they took my blood sample, I was kept in a ward known as the ‘suspected ward. The result came out and it was positive. I was then taken to a confined ward. One of the doctors from UNICEF, a white lady told me that they were having issues with the results and that they would have to re-run the tests. They did the tests again and it was still positive. I told them that it wasn’t my result and that I was healthy. I was even doing my usual exercises (press-ups) every morning. I kept telling them that I wasn’t sick. They took my blood sample the third time. That night, they told me that I tested negative in the last result and that I don’t have any reason to remain there. That was how I was discharged" he said
Speaking on what was hapening to his job as he was under isolation, Dennis said;
"I was a marketer in an oil and gas company. I worked on commission basis, but at a point, I realized that people were not calling me and when I called they won’t pick my calls. Even the person that I report directly refused to pick my calls and also refused to associate with me. Justina and I just got our jobs, she got hers at First Consultant Hospital and I got mine as a marketer with the oil and gas company.
On whether the government or First Consultant Hospital owes late Justina's family  some form of compensations, Dennis said;
"Although, no amount of money they give to the family will bring her back I think the government owes Justina’s family a lot because she died trying to save a situation. Justina died in active service as her death wasn’t natural".
On how his status changed from postive to negative, Dennis said
"I was reading a book on healing and taking of the Holy Communion. So I learnt to take Holy Communion morning, afternoon and night. I also engaged myself in feet-washing every day before going to bed. The Almighty God saved me; the Holy Spirit healed me. It wasn’t as though l didn’t fall sick as l had direct contact with Justina but the Almighty God healed me. When I was discharged, I got to my house on Saturday evening and spent two hours the next day, Sunday, thanking God on my own. I didn’t go to church or anywhere because of the already established stigma but today I can confidently attend church activities because I guess they all know I’m free now. I know my faith and belief healed me. God also worked for me apart from the fact that my immune system is also working. I believe I got healed also because friends prayed for me" he said.

I see your point about survivors who attribute their recovery to God, Linda. It begs the question: "Why didn't He save Justina, her unborn baby and the others?" That's why I'd rather give full credit to the medical teams knowing full well that man is fallible and can only do so much.

Hmmm! Jesus is Lord!! Only God can do d impossible, I rejoice with u my brother. U came face to face with death n pulled through, thank God for ur life. If only Justina wasn't pregnant, if only she wasn't pregnant. Maybe, just Maybe she would have survived it. Well u tried for Justina sha my brother. But u claim to be a faithful believer, u were not legally married to Justina n yet she was pregnant, well only God knows the way HE works, I guess d ways of man, yet unpleasing to God, but HE has mercy on whom HE wants to have Mercy on.

So Mr. Denis, you mean they did not give you drugs or medication? that what healed you is the Holy Spirit? so are trying to tell those other people that may have contacted the Ebola virus in Port Harcourt to stay at home and look onto the Holy Spirit? or if any body who may contact the virus in future time should not go to hospital and stay at home while looking onto Holy Spirit? ''Heaven help those help themselves'' God healed you Mr.Dennis Akagha, through the help of the doctors who He has given the knowledge and wisdom to diagnose and heal. with the assistance of the drugs. So encourage those who may have come in contact with the selfish diplomat who went to Port Harcourt , to treat himself private, to come submit themselves to the Disease Control Center, for early medication and to wait for Holy Spirit to cure them...thank you.

Poor Justina. What a way to die, a rotten baby inside you and in your own filth, all because of lack of care. Those isolation wards sound horrible, they just drop the sick there and abandon them to their fate. Some would survive if they had better care.

Well done Dennis, thank God you're alive and thanks for sharing your story. I will always remember Justina.

Thank God for him. I'm a bit surprised that with all that tough talk, the govt wasn't too careful. The house was left like that for 2 weeks, the guy was allowed to go into the ward, the guy was having symptoms at home and they left him there; if he was a wicked DIPLOMAT, he would have made sure he started a new cycle of ebola either in Lagos or in his State.

Oh no. Such a sad tale. This proves that what people were saying about the terrible state of the isolation centre is true. It hurts so much to know that people were left to suffer there. Just because they cared for others. The government should have trained people properly in the use of the protective equipment and disinfectant so they wouldn't be afraid to care for patients. And so sad that this callous Sawyer was her very first patient on her very first day of work. So tragic! RIP Justina.

This country never invests in medical research or provide the necessary medical equipments to hospitals, even if they do, it will be diverted by some human vampires. Look, if you are among those who want to die for this country, Im sorry for you and your entire generation, for me, i say fuck this country and those in government, I curse all of them, may the soul of Justina torment both the minister of health, President Jonathan and his aides as well as those benefiting from the Ebola funding, may the virus dig into their brain cells.. they will die in the process of wondering what just hit them..

Where are all the conspiracy theorists that were shouting how we were sent sub standard Zmapp?

Can u see what I'm saying about our healthcare?
Isn't it obvious that the standards are primordial, primitive unethical?

Let's leave Sawyer and the wicked diplomats and look at the bigger picture!
If we are to continue trading blame where it's not due,then we can also blame this fiance for endangering the innocent taxi man.

But look at the bigger picture!
In America/advanced nations, once the ebola begins to cause bleeding,they inject blood. Once it causes Hemmorhage,they uncloth the blood(they have the tools)any symptom it brings,can be averted. It's not really a disease of its own but a virus that clings to cells n feeds frm dem causing hepatitis and other things. But it's degenerative in nature,in the end,the virus recedes and begins to perish(im no doctor,fit in the terms). So if they can be properly taken care of,they may survive! But this nurse n Dr Ade were not given a chance.

The consensus was 2 say on paper that they are under seclusion and being taken care of, when in reality they're bidding time for them to die.

The America u speak of, cannot watch their citizens die in another country. Every life to them is precious enough to seek to save.

Will u blame the doctors who left her to die from septsis? A baby was rottening in her womb but do they have the tools to properly evacuate without risking more lives? She was left to die and that is why those who are infected fear to go there.

Imagine what this young man faced seeing his love die in such painful, degrading circumstance. His life will be marked forever.

Instead of sitting in ur houses blaming Sawyer, blaming PH doctor and diplomat, why can't we put pressure on the government! Why can't we have a sustained social media campaign! Why can't ppl like Atiku(who are busy latching unto bring back our girls) lend their voice to this cause?

The girls are very important but it has happened now. Our health care system is a titanic waiting to sink.

If you are a government official reading this,please help! Help us the masses. Overturn this system,people are dying. We implore!

These drugs we lack,these machines and valves we lack,these safety and necessary provisions(like tissues n gloves) that can't be found in govt hospitals are not costlier than what you give to your girlfriends to shop in Paris. Show some conscience. Let's speak up. Even if we can afford to go abroad.pls

oh! He was very loving and kind. Just feel for the late nurse...I can't help but to shed tears as i read through the line bout what she went through.

Good story. It is important to note that he mentioned that her fiancee would have made it if all that was needed to be do to her were done at the right time. This leads to the suspicion that the treatment of these Ebola cases by the govt is not prompt and thorough. The health workers in charge of these Ebola cases should be prompt, more commitment, know how to protect them such that they do not themselves have phobia for the virus any more. The govt should take total care of the health workers, patients in isolation centers, those already quarantine and those the being watched(including their feeding clothing and accommodation). The govt should avoid making politics, propaganda out of this situation in order to be effective.

Really sad for Justina... I can't even imagine what her thoughts were lying there in that hospital. When a foetus dies and it is not removed, it more or less poisons your entire system. So I'm pretty sure Ebola had some help in her demise. Not much to say, my heart just hurts for what she endured. Glad that her fiance is ok.

Anonymous said...

You share my thoughts. So, inadvertently, the effect of the dead foetus in her uterus sped up the death of that poor girl. What horrible way to meet one's end

Anonymous said...

Daft!!! Did you read the part this guy said he wasn't treated? He was only taken in and had his blood tested and temperature taken regularly. Each person's faith is different. Some people give up before the actual death and that is called lack of faith. It is not just calling on God that makes the miracles. It is the accompanying faith in the same God.
On the other hand, people's destinies are set differently by the Almighty. Even with faith as large as rock, God can decide to call the individual. And that is why we have no right, what so ever, to ask God questions.
I'm sure you don't expect this grateful man to give God's glory to any man!

It is surprising that nobody noticed how this man is smiling in the picture?! This is a man who has supposedly lost his fiancee...If true love ever existed...he should be heartbroken not smiling like he won the frigging lottery! Bloody Opportunist

Anonymous said...

With God nothing shall be impossible.God can do all things but we sometimes limit him from doing so much because of our unbelief.After all, it is written than without faith it is impossible to please God.Therefore, for people saying why didn't God heal some people and why did he heal some people boils down to our faith system.God is not unjust.

I beg to differ. I see insensitivity in the way he's talked about his 'betrothed ' or 'fiance' etc. Meanwhile does he remember that impregnating someone outside of wedlock is a single? He was an obvious fornicator claiming Miracles.
He shouldn't have put up a disclaimer that they weren't married - even if they were, he's back on the market as death has done them part.
He shouldn't have put the conditions in which she was before her death put there - saying she was defecating on herself - give her some dignity in death.
I know one thing though, regardless of what we lay claim to, everything will be laid bare at the Judgement seat of Christ.
