    Nigeria has been declared officially free of Ebola after six weeks with no new cases, the World Health Organization (WHO) says.

    WHO representative Rui Gama Vaz, speaking in the capital Abuja, said it was a "spectacular success story".

    Nigeria won praise for its swift response after a Liberian diplomat brought the disease there in July.

    The outbreak has killed more than 4,500 people in West Africa, mostly in Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone.

    An estimated 70% of those infected have died in those countries.

    Yet we hear US air crew workers who wouldn't board a plane to Nigeria! Proud achievement on our part, although the global fight is just starting.

    Lagos did an excellent job in curbing it. And thanks to Dr. Adadevoh for truly saving a nation.
