What a monumental loss
**********************
I was shocked when I received the disheartening news of the transition into higher glory of Chief. Adetunji Olowolayemo OKI (aka Apollo).

Chief was so full of life and vigour. He was a beloved and charming person. He was a husband, father, grandfather, friend, benefactor, adviser, confidant, motivator, role model and so much more to many people. Though I am still battling with the stark reality of his demise, I thank God Almighty for a fulfilled life that was well spent in active service to humanity. To her beloved daughter, Dunni and his other children, I pray for God’s protection and abundant blessings always. May you continue to walk in God's grace, wisdom and favour. Your entire family will continue to remain in our prayers.
Adieu to a great man. Farewell Daddy Apollo.
