Nigeria has recorded its first Ebola death outside Lagos after a doctor died of the virus in the oil hub of Port Harcourt.

Officials say the doctor was infected after treating an Ebola patient who later recovered.

West African health ministers have been meeting in the Ghanaian capital Accra to find more effective measures to halt the virus from spreading further in the region.

The BBC's Tomi Oladipo reports from Lagos.
