Dr. O. Brown-West,
It's a rude shock when the sad news of your passing to glory came....because earlier, on my arrival to New York I had been told of your trip to Nigeria. What a mix bag? May your gentle soul rest with the Lord. I pray for Divine strength & healing to your children & relatives that you left behind..Amen. Rest with the Lord. Adieu.

May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace Dr Oriaye. Amen

The news of your untimely death came as a very unpleasant shock to me. When we spoke on Thanksgiving day, all seemed well.
I wil miss you both as a dear cousin and an excellent mentor.

He was my First Teacher at the Morgan State University. May seemed he was a little rough on students But was very oncerned about their success.
One of the best people I have ever met...a very Good Hearted teacher.
May his soul rest in peace.

Oriks, why did you leave us? I will miss your Saturday calls. Dear brother, wonderful friend and great son of Buguma we will miss you..." Sleep well Oriks, take your rest, we love you, but God loves you best."

Dear Bro Oriks, you were truly a teacher, leadership role model, community development organizer & elder statesman. You were a big brother worthy of emulation. Thank you for your love for individuals & communities enlightenment for freedom from the bondage of ill-education. The multitude of lives you touched will celebrate your life and miss you fondly. May your soul rest in peace.

This is the greatest shock of 2012. Orikaye, you were indeed one of a kind and there is now a vacuum in Ijaw Nation. Follow the Light and all shall be well. Adieu my brother.

Brother Oriks, When I saw you on the 2nd of January 2012 at PH airport, we had a short conversation and you told me all wasn’t well. When I left you to board my flight I said to you “bye, journey mercy” I never knew it was a farewell. Although I saw your condition, your death came too sudden. I will greatly miss you. The Kalabari community has lost a great son. May your soul rest in peace

My deepest sympathy to the Family of Dr. Brown-West. I truly treasured, looked forward to, and enjoyed his every visit to Morgan State University. His was truly unique and a pleasure to work with. A job well done Dr. Brown-West - may you rest in peace.

Oriks, my Cousin, brother, friend & my President. I am still in a daze. You called me on Xmas day from Nigeria, no even a sign of illness from your voice, you fooled all of us. I was evening expecting my routine sunday call when Daerebo called on Saturday to tell me you were back to the State & gravely ill. The next few hour you walked away w/ out saying goodbye Ebi.Always be remembered.

May his soul rest in peace. The Ijaw foundation and the Rivers State people have really lost a man with lots of intellectual property. Rest in peace Prof Orikaye.
