"Olufunke Omotuyi - May you rest on in peace in the embracing arms of your ancestors. It never makes sense that man should be so wicked to his fellow man...to take another's life for no apparent good reason. May God comfort your friend's and family as you live on forever in their hearts. I am saddened by this news story."

"Funke, i must confess your untimely death from the hand of a supposedly human being blew me away. Its been a while i saw you last but i still had you tucked away in my heart till last Saturday when I read this dastardly act on line. What can one say to this?Mans inhumanity to man. Whoever did this will never have peace until he goes 6 feet under in a more horrible way than he did to a peace loving person like you amen. May your beautiful, peace loving soul rest in perfect peace. May light perpetual shine on your loving soul. God will console your family and loved ones and give them the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. Funke Omotuyi go well. May God avenge your painful death to the fourth generation of those who have hands in your untimely death."

"The wound created by your demise may take forever to heal. The vacuum that your sudden departure created is too deep and wide to be filled in a hurry. You are such an epitome of virtues. Your humility and adorable temperament will for ever remain fresh in my memory. I delightfully calls you Aunty while you simply call me Prof., in a way that is unique and perculiar to our relationship. Inducting our students at UNILAG was one of your first official assignment as the Ag. Registrar and our brief discussion on phone late last month, just before I travelled out of the Country was my last contact with your soft and always caring voice. How would I have imagine that these will be my last contacts with you? How on earth would I have thought that I will return to Nigeria never to see you again? My consolation is that your faith will stand for you and you will surely enjoy an eternal  rest in a better cosmos. Let the author(s) of this evil leave forever in the valley of their evil. At least, let them leave long enough to harvest the fruits of their wickedness. Adieu Aunty!"

After all everyone will leave the stage someday, somehow. You are now with your creator. Rest in peace, one of the very best of Akususun's wives."

"Dearly beloved Mummy Omotuyi,
You were an epitome of beauty and love that radiated from within. You were so gentle, easy going and so humble. You related well with both great and small. You were so accommodative... Oh! I missed a woman of virtue!
On one occasion, when I came to your office at Harvey rd, Yaba and it was hour of prayer (12noon), with smile you said: ''don't be annoyed o, will you join me to pray, because it's hr of prayer?'' With joy, I joined.
Another time, when I came to Abuja for a conference, you invited me to lodge in your house. We eat together and slept together on the same bed.
A woman of prayer! You will be greatly missed. But I know you are resting at the bossom of our Lord.
I pray that the good Lord will grant your family the fortitude to bear this loss.
Sleep on beloved, till we meet to part no more."

"Our dear Mrs Olufunke Folasade Omotuyi was a soldier for Christ. Christ's soldiers don't fall, they are transported to a higher realm of God's glory to become SAINTS!  She's with the heavenly hosts signed up for "everlasting service"! -Oluranti & Olumide"

This tribute was added by Salami Matthew on 14th June 2016

"It is HARD to accept the death of a loved one; especially when you didn't have the chance to say goodbye; especially when the deceased was taken so suddenly and so shockingly at the prime of life and most especially when it seems like an irreplaceable part of your world is gone. The grief and the pain can be unbearable; you cry a river and your sorrow knows no end. You never really know what it's like until you are there yourself, but you look to God because he's the only one who can comfort you. Death and indeed a death so sudden and painful of mummy Omotuyi, makes me realize the brevity of life. We often take life for granted; too much so. Her death has made me sit down and reflect. It has made me take time to appreciate the loved ones in my life because I don't know what tomorrow will bring. It has made me put things in perspective. I want to live life and love it, I don't want to spend my life being unhappy or dissatisfied, I want to put a smile on my face because that's what can make a dark day seem bright and I want to play the game of life to the very end like that of mummy Omotuyi. So for those of you who can identify with me in grief, make it your aim to try and look past it and move on. Mummy Omotuyi is gone; we can not bring her back, but at least in memory of her, we can live a life that we know she would be proud of. Our loved ones may be dead and gone but we are privileged to still be living owe it to them to live fulfilling lives."

"I remember having you as our Chem Path lecturer in the early nineties,you were so gentle, so willing to help even going out of your way several times - then you joined the MLSCN and even from there you were always ready to assist as many as you could, to say you couldn't hurt a fly is just saying it as it is- you really couldn't!
It really grieves my heart that you had to leave in such a gruesome manner- but I am encouraged by the scriptures- even Death does not separate us from Christ's love!!
Adieu ma- we trust God your children and loved ones will not be forsaken,God will watch over them. May your soul rest in perfect peace!!"

This tribute was added by Adekoya Abimbola on 13th June 2016

"Ma, may your soul rest in peace. I did not know that your call to me last month to ask if I was related to one Adekoya whose file was on your table was the last of your voice I will hear. You don't need our tear nor weeping all you need is our prayer that your soul will be granted an ever lasting peace and rest. Adieu."

"Death is a bad reaper, it plucks the unripe sparing the riped , it harvests the good sparing the bad. You represented the good plucked while at the prime. It was a great shock that left me dumbfounded for days before I could really break my silence as the events prior your sudden exit was unprecedented in our history. The time was trying but your equanimity in the face of pressure was evident to all leaving no clue that death was iminent. You are a brave woman while your assailants are cowards. I find it difficult to believe that you would be referred to in the past. I never met you but your legend went ahead of you and it is a common knowledge that you are a woman of great equanimity. While it pained me that you were close to breasting the tape after years of meritorious service to your country and your profession you love so much you were hunted down by wicked souls. I take solace in the fact that God would never have allowed it if not for a reason as the holy writ says " the righteous is taken before the evil day. Your memory shall remain sweet in our hearts. May the Lord bless all what you left behind-  your family and legacy -.Sleep on beloved Mama. Adieu till we meet on the resurrection morning."

This tribute was added by Adetunji Adewale on 13th June 2016

"Though I never had the opportunity of meeting you but I am certainly sure that you were a good mother and leader as evident by everyone since the day you shockingly left this world.    
May God console the family you left behind and everyone of us.

You shall forever remain in our hearts.

May God in His Mercy grant u mama Olufunke Omotuyi eternal rest. Amen.

ADIEU!!!"

"It's a devastating puzzle that a harmless & innocent woman would be so brutally murdered. "Funkus" as some of us in our class of 1977/81 in UCH Ibadan fundly called her was an easy going, peace-loving, never complaining lady. She was a completely detribalised person as evidenced in her circle of friends in our days in Ibadan. She was the bridge-builder & peacemaker in our class. Whenever voices went high from political & ethnocentric arguments by those of us active in school & class politics, she often intervened in her usual characteristic charming & disarming way by calling, "GC-GC take it easy". She was loved and respected by all in our class. Her charming beauty & pleasant manners in those youthful student days made her a natural mediator every aggressive member of our class readily listened to in moments of conflict and anger. We were sixty in number in our class from all parts of Nigeria, fired with zeal and bubbling with ideals, determined to study and practice a great profession, medical laboratory science. Funkus, we are pained by your sudden & tragic death at a time destiny thrust on you the role of healing the wounds of a profession you cherished, loved and gave your life to. Your memory & legacy shall live on. May you find eternal rest in your creator. And may the Almighty God grant great grace & fortitude to your immediate family to overcome the pain of your sudden departure.  Adieu Mrs. Funke Omotuyi."

"Wonderful woman of  God, who did not struggle for anything.
She is humble, and respectable to a fault. Every time, I am with her, she will always ask for my family and everything. I spoke to her on the phone on Monday and she  discussed with me very well ,like her normal self. She was not in a hurry to respond to me on the phone even with her busy life, as the CEO.  I keep asking myself why? Why? As if it is a dream.  Virteous woman of God, love by everyone. Quite, meek and loving. My happiness is that you are in heaven, far from this useless world of hatred, wickedness. God will continue to be with with daddy and the children. Sleep well"
