Doctors do not have a different DNA from other humans, hence they can also get infected and even killed by the diseases they treat.

Such was the fate of Ahmed Victor Idowu, a young promising medical doctor who fell in the line of duty while treating a Lassa fever patient.

A woman brought her seven months old baby who was having a febrile illness for expert management at Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja where Idowu secured his housemanship.

He was the doctor on call last week at the FMC, Lokoja in the Paediatrics unit (Children's ward) where he contracted the virus.

Ahmed was a graduate of University of Nigeria, Nsukka (2016). He started his house-job at the FMC Lokoja, Kogi State in 2017.

His remains have been committed to mother earth at Okene Cemetery.
