Scholastica I was hoping and looking forward to seeing you, our beautiful grand children, and your loving husband Demola. Only to be informed of your sudden departure. It shocked me but our solace is in the Almighty God whose bossom you are peacefully resting. The holy spirit our helper, our comforter, and our guide will uphold, strengthen, and comfort our dear son Demola, your loving children, and our entire family members and friends in Jesus mighty name.

Adieu our loving wife from Aunty Ekpo.

Dear Sis Scholastica,

Beautiful Woman of God. It was sad to hear you had passed on. I thank God for the opportunity to know you as one of the leaders in PUSH ( Giant Within Ministries). I have heard a little about you through Emmanuella (Sister). Your devoted service and passion for God is admirable. Thank God for your life and legacy. Rest in the bosom of God soldier of Christ.


"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted".~Matthew 5:4

Pray God minister comfort, healing , strength and peace to Families of Dike, Adeyemi, and well wishers. Stay strong!

"For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him" Thessalonians 4:14

Rest on Sis Scholastica! Daughter of Zion!

Dear Sis Scholastica,

I may not have know your personally but I knew you through our PUSH family. Your love for Christ and His service was admirable. We take solace in the fact that you are now resting peacefully in the bossom of your Father in heaven. I pray God's grace and strength on the wonderful family you left behind and who loved you so dearly!! Rest on sister!!

Sleep on, beloved Sister Scholastica, sleep and take your rest ;
Lay down your head upon the Saviour’s Breast;
We love you well, but Jesus loves you best: Good night, good night, good night!

Thank you for your service in God’s kingdom on earth.
Thank you for your faithful and committed leadership in PUSH Prayer Movement; We will miss your lovely voice and prayer points on Saturday morning prayer meetings. We are so grateful for the time we had with you. We wish it could have been longer but Jehovah knows best therefore in everything we give him all the glory.
Darling Sister, you are gone but will never be forgotten. As promised in the Word of God according to 1 Cor 2:9 only God knows what He has prepared for you.
I commit the family to God as they mourn this big loss. May God fill in that gap in Jesus name amen

Dear Scholastica!!!
It was a pleasure knowing you...I still remember the good times we shared in Benin! You were so exciting, so full of joy, so determined and unrelenting, so much that you could not be discouraged even in the midst of serious challenges.
I can’t imagine why God allowed this transition but we can’t question Him, for “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints” (Psalm 116:15).
You’ve made your mark, so Rest In Peace till me meet again at eternity!
Demo, may the Holy Spirit comfort and console you and the children for “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” (Mathew 5:4).
And the Dike and Adeyemi Families, the Lord will wipe away your tears and strengthen you because “weeping may endure for the night,” but it is certain that “joy comes in the morning” (Psalms 30:5b). You ALL will laugh again!!!

I never met Scholastica in person but I got to know her through PUSH prayer meetings where she led series of prayer sessions be they Saturday morning prayer meetings or Monthly fasting prayer sessions or Praying parents conferences. She had a vibrant passionate voice, that was unique to her, firing up prayers as she led on points. What faith, what passion! What an example! Scholastica you will be missed we love you but Jesus loves you best. My sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family and may Scholastica rest well in the arms of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

It was a great privilege to share 6 years with you as your classmate, you were a kind, loving, caring and an amiable person. You were always willing to help anyone in need. You lived a good life and we are all proud of your bravery and positive spirit.

We pray that God should grant your soul an eternal rest and may he grant your family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.

Sleep well Scholar.

Beloved Sister Scholastica, thank you for your fervent prayer and leadership in our PUSH prayer Movement. As a family, we miss you so much. In Philippians 1:21, it is written, “for to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain”. Well, you lived for Christ to the very end. Now, you have gained Him and all of Heaven.

May our God of hope and peace keep your family, friends and all who love and care, till we meet again, in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

Dearest Schola every time I think of you, one word always comes to mind, beautiful..............beautiful inside and outside. In the time I came to know you, you made an impact in my life. You always exuded an attitude of thanksgiving and an inner peace and joy. Everything was about the Kingdom and you served with so much fervor. I am so thankful for the opportunity I had to get to know you as I served alongside you. My beautiful sister with a beautiful soul, I am encouraged by the fact that we will meet again on the Resurrection morning.

What a beautiful legacy Sister Scholastica left.! A glorious legacy of commitment to the things of God, a love of His Word and His people, and a passion in carrying out His agenda! Her footprint is indelible, forever stamped in the hearts of all who hold her dear, and that is all of us whose lives she touched too many Saturdays and Special prayer meetings to count!! It is of a certainty that she MADE her mark! She fought the GOOD fight and she TRIUMPHED! I am grateful for her labour of love! Sleep on beloved! Sleep in heavenly peace! Forever in hearts till we meet at His Feet

You did it with so much passion and we are confident that your labor in the Lord was not in vain; your crowns of glory await you.
Praying the Lord continues to comfort your family and meet their every need.
We will forever cherish your memories

Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints... Ps 116:15

I met Sis Schola in PUSH Prayer Movement, she was a prayer leader who brought passion to every prayer meeting. We love you and as Christians we never say goodbye, it is a farewell.
Bro Adeyemi and the Children, you are in our prayers always.
Posted by Omotola Odeyemi on June 19, 2021
Good night Sis Schola. I just can not forget your hearty laughter, you were Always the life of the party, always full of so many fun stories . I remember the last time I came to pick up Mary Kay , you ended up gisting with me for a while by the car and I laughed so hard that day. Sleep on sis , till we meet at Jesus Feet . I pray The Lord comforts your family and all everyone you left behind .
Posted by Ishola Adeyemo on June 19, 2021
Our dearest Schola. It's very difficult for me and Vwede to write this tribute because it hasn't registered yet. Right from the very first time Demola brought her to Benin and put her in our care, I was struck by her near perfect balance of boldness but gentleness, strength and vulnerability, assertiveness and respect, loving but truthful tell it as it is kind of love, fierce determination, yet realistic . Indeed she was never one to shy away from challenges. She was fearless and one who would not be discouraged from doing anything she set her mind to do.
We could go on and on!
We pray that God will comfort, console, strengthen and encourage Demola especially and the Adeyemi and Dike family IJN.

Beloved Schola, your happy-cheery optimistic nature was infectious, I remember your distinct sonorous laughter in class (Uniben Pharmacy) like it was yesterday! You inspired me in many ways, including living each day granted us by the Almighty to the fullest.

We are sad because your time was short, but we are comforted because we know you gave your all: ‘lived life to the fullest, loved completely and thronged on fearlessly. You will be greatly missed.

Rest in His bosom!

Posted by Omonye Air on June 19, 2021
Schola, my dearest friend and sister from another mother,

It was a huge shock when your husband called to inform me of your demise.
I can never forget how we met in school (Uniben) and we were even room mates at a time. Your charismatic nature was highly infectious. You were bold with a magnetic smile, ever ready to give a helping hand and never believed in impossibilities nor affected by cynics and backbiters.
You always made a positive impact on people because you had a beautiful soul which radiated to all. You were indeed a blessing to this earth.

Now, you are with the Lord free from all hassles and swimming in God's glory.
May the good Lord console and comfort your family and loved ones, especially your husband and beautiful daughters.

I truly miss you.
Posted by Stephanie Nwokedi on June 19, 2021

I've known sis Schola since the 90s, her sister Emmanuella and I were friends from junior secondary school days as such I was a frequent visitor at their house.

When their mum died she took on the role of a mother and was fiercely protective of her siblings. They all shared an undeniably strong bond.

She was always so full of life, she would crack us up with stories of Uniben etc, there was always a lot of laughter whenever she was around.

My heart grieves that I would never hear Schola's distinct voice on PUSH prayer calls where she was a prayer leader.

Her death was truly a bitter pill to swallow. But I know that she is in a better place now.

May the Lord comfort her husband, two beautiful daughters and sisters.

I never really met Sis Schalarstica physically neither did I interact with her one on one but one could never miss her zeal for our Lord and her energy. Iwhen I would see her on video, her smile and beauty will captivate me as well. Sis your time on this side seemed short to us but I know you finished the race successfully.  Take your deserved rest and we are consoled by the fact that you are resting with the Father Till we meet again dear sis, sleep well. You are sorely missed.

I am so grateful for knowing such a soul like you through PUSH family. I may have not spoken to you personally but you have touched many souls including mine through your powerful presence every time you on the PUSH whether you are leading the prayer or not . Your powerful voice is always distinct, your tongue praying still rings in my ears even as I am writing this . You may have gone so soon but you have affected so many lives in different ways. Your smile brightens the platform. The greatest achievement is soul winning which you effectively and fervently did in your short life. But it’s not how long but the quality of life lived. I personally benefited so much through your labour of commitments to God despite your hidden health challenges. Thank you for being a blessing to Push and others.and for sure you are reaping your labour from the bosom of our father
May the good lord grant your family Comfort to bear your irreplaceable loss amen.

Dear sis Scholastica

You will be missed. Although I never met you in person, I knew you as elder sister to my friend Emmanuella. She shared so many beautiful stories about you. One common theme which stood out from those stories was the way you loved your family.

I remember your jovial attitude and beautiful smile. I remember watching you lead prayers on PUSH with such passion and devotion. Thank you for your service to God and mankind.

Till we meet in the kingdom of our King and Maker, rest well.
Posted by Ifeoluwa AKANNI on June 19, 2021

Laughter like a gentle morning rain
Voice as strong as chords of silver
Prayer warrior, steadfast and true
Are some of the things I remember of you

Fighter, warrior, survivor
Worshipper, sister, friend
You affected everyone you met
You left a lasting dent
How can I ever forget
My Schols of life?

Thank you for gracing my life with your presence and love
Short though it was
I am one of the privileged ones
Forever grateful to have had you in my corner and I in yours

Rest on my lovely sister
Worship on my beautiful friend
I see you free and hear your tinkling laugh
trill up there in Heaven
I know that you are at rest
I know that you are at your best
I know that you are beholding your Savior's face
And even though we miss you here
I know that we shall meet again, never to part

I love you Schols
For always.

Your sister,
Doofan.

I did not have the privilege of meeting you physically but could always feel your presence during our PUSH prayer call. You were such a vibrant soul and so full of life , not to talk about your infectious laughter. Rest well sis in the bosom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. You will forever be missed

It was a great privilege to know Sister Scholastica at the Push Prayer Ministry. I took notice of her voice the very first time she led prayers in December 2018 during our end of year prayer and fasting. There was so much life, fire and passion in her voice. Our dear sister will be greatly missed. Her voice always lit up our prayer meetings. Enjoy a peaceful rest in the Lord's bossom till we meet again.

Death!Death!!Death!!!,....Death is a debt everyone must pay but to Dumebi,it came as a big shock,am just writing this now cos each time I open this page to write ,I find it extremely difficult to accept this cruel verdict, but then who am I to question the Almighty who gives and ......
Chukwudumebi was and still my niece cos she still lives....
She was practically a baby when my sis(her mum) pick me up to come and live with them at a very young age and since then I and Dumebi were practically inseparable, we were so close and fond of each other to the extent that what I cannot tell or discuss with my sister(her mum) I always see her as a friend I can trust and talk to.
I remember her early years with Lara Day nursery and Primary sch at Ikeja,I usually pick her to and fro the bus stop were her school bus picks and drops her in the morning and afternoon, and she will say ''uncle my legs are aching me pls carry me'' and I will gladly carry her home.
Getting home,will discover that she barely touched her food that was given to her in the morning before leaving for school,and when asked she will say uncle am not hungry, she will prefer to drink cold water which is not good for her health and that is when we always fight cos I won't let her drink it.
Dumebi is not the eating type, so she will always want to bribe me with her own portion of food so I won't tell her mom about her bad habit..''drinking cold water'' but cos of our closeness, I won't tell anybody about it and at the sametime won't let her drink it.
Schola was my 'Padi',my confidant and an ally,and as far as am concerned she can give her life for another.......A GIVER.
Oooh ......Schola I will forever miss you.
Live on my dearest,till we meet to part no more....

My Beautiful Aunty Dumdum as I fondly call you I honestly can’t believe you are gone. You where so selfless and amazing and wouldn’t have imagined anything of this sort happening to you. I just believe you’re in a peaceful place with no pain or troubles anymore and that alone make me happy. I will deeply miss you. I still haven’t had a chance to tell mum cos she will be shattered especially now she’s in a fragile state. I do know she will miss you like crazy and we love you soooo much. Thanks for all you did for us. May your beautiful soul rest easy.
her Life

Scholastica Lives on

Beautiful, witty, vivacious, fearless – that was Scholastica. A determined soul, she always went after her dreams. She wasn’t afraid of opposition, and she didn’t bother with naysayers. She had a great sense of humour and a hearty infectious laughter. Scholastica was beautiful, inside and out.

The first of four children, Scholastica was born into a closely-knit family who loved her deeply. She was a loving daughter, and a protective and dependable sibling, always looking out for her family and doing her utmost to ensure the best outcomes for them. Losing her parents were harrowing experiences for her, but she bounced back as she always did despite those difficult situations. She was a compassionate yet emotionally strong person who had a heart of gold and was genuinely interested in other people. 

Scholastica was a firm believer in Jesus Christ and enjoyed praying. Her love for God was evident as she involved Him in all aspects of her life. She desired to make people’s lives better, and one of the ways she did this was through her later-in-life career in counselling, which allowed her to bless others with her gift of caring, listening, and wisdom. She had a degree in Pharmacy from the University of Benin, Nigeria and was working on a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counselling at the Colorado Christian University in the US.

In 1994 as a teenager, Scholastica met her childhood sweetheart and they’ve been together and inseparable ever since. They eventually married and in the years that followed, were blessed with two beautiful daughters. As a wife and mum, Scholastica’s devotion to her family was unparalleled. She loved her husband and daughters immensely, and if you crossed them, you risked being challenged in her unique no-nonsense and say-it-as-it-is manner. Oh, Scholastica was always such a breath of fresh air! 

Gifted with a clever mind, Scholastica approached life passionately, doing what she believed in, working hard and aspiring for great things regardless of health challenges. She was an excellent role model to her children, whom she was very close to. 

Scholastica’s determination and will to live was admirable; she was never one to give up without a fight. Her passing on can only be because God called her home. She lived her life on earth to the fullest and, no doubt, will continue to do so in eternity. 

Live on, our beloved Scholastica Adeyemi (nee Dike).

The last time we spoke was one of the few times I had the privilege of talking to you. It was as if I had known you for years! Your reputation as a child of God precedes you; but God does not care about reputations (right standing with men) - he cares about your heart and soul - and yours was filled with love for God and compassion for His creatures. You have won sis!

Sis Scholastica, you have fought the good fight, you have finished the race, you have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for you the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to you on that Day. May God comfort the entire family at this time in Jesus name. Amen
