Adeola, I remember your very warm personality, intensity and focus on your tasks. You are not upset when I follow-up incessantly on you for updates about the customers even outside work hours. When I heard the news, I broke down and cried and cried with utter disbelief. I still can't believe it - it's just too heavy and cannot imagine how your young family can cope but for amazing grace! I am finding it extremely difficult not to question this outcome. You left a mark with me, and you will be fondly remembered for a long time to come. Adeola my dear friend and colleague I pray you are resting in the Heavenly Father's embrace.

TO THE BEST BROTHER EVER! I have never envisioned myself writing a tribute for my brother so soon. My brother was one of the best things that ever happened to me. He was my first role model, my friend, prayer partner, support, confidant and much more. He played a very vital role in what I am today, when I told him about me starting photography, he got me different tutorial videos to help me learn and we were always shooting pictures together. He has always been there, from my school days till now! He always came to check on me at Command Secondary School Ibadan, Covenant University and has always been concerned about me. My brother taught me many things I know about God, his steadfast love for God was so obvious that it rubbed off on everyone. Growing up, I didn’t really buy plenty clothes because I always had his clothes and shoes to wear. My brother’s death is a big shocker to me! I am so sad, I can’t take it!!! I know for sure, he has gone to be with the Lord and soon we shall all see him and rejoice again. My brother loved everyone; friends, family, colleagues, strangers, church members. He saw the best in people. He was the man of the people, really cared and looked out for people; always calling and visiting people. I am more than certain that his family will lack no good thing! God is a good God!!! In the good times and bad, He is God!!! Till We Meet To Part No More! Adieu Adeola Olatunji Okungbaye.

'Deola, you are one fine gentleman I was privileged to meet. Always full of smiles; i never saw you lose your cool ever, all through the times we worked together in our Sunnet Systems/UBA work experiences. I remember the day we ran into each other again in Fidelity Bank, sometime in 2015/2016 and we exchanged contacts. Very smart dude and polite to a fault and you sent me birthday wishes on my Birthday in December last year! I was shocked to learn today of your demise bruv, and I'm still finding it hard to believe that we lost such a rare gem! I hope you find eternal blissful rest in the Lord bro. Peace...
