Wale, I regret to learn about your passing, and to realize that we would never meet here on earth again. It’s been over 40 years when we were all children growing up in Fadeyi but my memory remains ever bright ... my remembrance of you, our little brother that was always trying to be part of the mix, and always just few steps around me and Femi ad we played. You left your mark on earth and its a good one. 
May God comfort the entire family that you left behind. May God welcome you into his kingdom, and keep you in his grace until we meet again. Adieu my brother. RIP !

Bro Wale Agun, I'm still in shock and short of words but all I can say is that I wasn't really close to you in person in the ushering department but it was visible and glaring to me and all that you were soft spoken and an easy going person.
Hmmmmn! May God comfort your wife, aged parents and the rest of the families and give them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss and May you find eternal rest at the bosom of your maker. Sun re o!

Brother wale, all i can say about you is that you are gentle and very reasonable, I have been privileged to work along side
you as an usher in fountain of life church and on those occasion i can bear witness that you are indeed a good Christian. This news is really shocking but as much as we love you God's love for you is greater, I wish your family the fortitude to bear this. We will really miss you.

Big Daddy ❤️
On the 11th of May, we got the worst news this year by far. Till today it remains very hard to believe.
You were always so happy, always putting a smile on others' faces even just with your smile
You prophesied great future careers for us according to how we are. Now we'll never fly you over with our private jets. Nevertheless, I have no doubt in my mind that where you are now is much better than a private jet. On the bright side, you will see us succeed without a doubt, from Heaven. Thank you for everything Big Daddy.
You remain forever in our hearts.

A gentle soul, very caring and unassuming. You are heaven’s gain and will be greatly missed. My husband was beyond shock to learn of your passing and kept asking me questions I couldn’t give answers to. May God comfort your family especially your darling wife. Sun re o.
Posted by Bola Sanni on May 22, 2020
Wale, you departed this sinful world at a time that we thought your fighter spirit is most needed. You were a good husband, son, brother and friend. You were honest, dutiful and hard working in a country where these qualities are in short supply. Although you died at a young age, your memory will forever remain with us. As you find rest in the bosom of the Lord, may the Almighty God comfort your parents, your family,  Siblings and loved ones. Rest in peace
Posted by Arinola Ogunrinde on May 21, 2020
Isssss-a-Wale!!!!! Hmmmmmm!!! Words fail me. Still can’t believe you are gone.

You were a good brother and a great man. Thank you for the beautiful times and fun memories but above all thank you for your love, good heart and open arms.

You will be greatly missed Chairman, but to live in the hearts of those we love is to live forever.

Fare thee well Wale and continue to Rest In Peace with loved ones gone before .......Isssss-a-Middle!!!

Ha! Bro Wale, Oko Sister Bunmi mi, it was a shock when I heard the news! The whole day was so terrible for me at work. You were such a gentle man.... It is well.... Who are we to question God. He loves you more than we do! May your soul rest in perfect peace.
Posted by Lucia Jaiyeola on May 21, 2020
You called me your daughter and I call you my Daddy! How I remember so clearly those days as a little girl, when I will say "carry me" and you will always do and throw me up and spin me around.. I knew no one could try me in Satellite then because I had big Egbons like you who will be right there when I called. I still remember when you saw my kids recently and how we teased about you carrying me as a little girl. You had such a caring and large heart. It is still so difficult to take in, but I guess it was time, time for you to go rest in God's bosom. We love you dearly but God loves you more. You will surely be missed, rest on my dear Egbon, till we meet in heaven.. Lucia Jaiyeola (nee Omene).

Bros Wale was accommodating, friendly, jovial. All my memories of him are happy ones. His room was like next to mine even though we lived 3 houses apart.

I'm comforted knowing "Monwilly" is in a better and more blissful place.

Till we meet again sir. You will surely be missed
Posted by Abike Yteesh on May 21, 2020
"Uncle Wale" as called by my sister (Yetunde), the news of your death came to me as a surprise, because you were such a gentle lively man anybody would want to have as a friend or colleague.
Counting back to the day that you came to my shop with your wife, Bunmi.
Well, we take solace in God. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

It's with heavy heart I write this tribute, Wale, oko Bunmi, I can't believe you are gone, just like that. I remember the friendship we shared in abeokuta over a period of time. You were always there with Bunmi, you always had a good word, warm and good company. We love u but God loves you more. Rest in perfect peace my brother. Sleep well.
Posted by Leticia Omene-Otomewo on May 20, 2020
Hmmmm still very unbelievable... can't fathom the fact that you are no more... same you visited my Dad in the hospital late last year, very shocking and sad but I thank God, that you are now in a better place! You were like a brother to me infact you were my brother and never hesitated to act as such while we were growing up as Children in Close 16, Satellite Town. You always called me Leto-teetee and will hail me by saying *I am too much and you trust that no one can try me* this always brought a smile to my face & I will giggle excitingly and funny enough this statement which seemed like a joke later had a strong impact on the woman I became! Oh how devastating... despite adult life throwing us in different directions, it is definite that my childhood can not be complete without you. Haaaa My Dear Brother, Wale Agun, always full of life... never a dull moment, I will always cherish the memories we shared and how you always protected me like a big brother should... We can never question God but I pray that He alone will comfort and console your entire family esp. your Parents cos if we feel this way then how much more... You left too soon and you will surely be missed... Till we meet again... May Your Gentle Loving Soul Rest in Perfect Peace Amen!!

I met uncle Wale in Accra when he came visiting sis B! We conversed like we had known each other for long! You were such a cool and down to earth person. Always ready to listen, give advise and honestly tell you when you are missing it! I always looked forward to your visits! I so badly want to ask why we always loose the sweetest souls first but who are we to question the Lord?!
It’s still shocking and so hard to believe you’ll no longer be with us.
I’m happy to have known you uncle Wale! Rest peacefully in the bosom of our Lord

Am at a loss for words.
You were our big and jovial big daddy
Moyin's big daddy
Always there to help
I know I owe you cake and yoyo fish
But am sure the delicacy you are eating now doesn't compare

You have run your race
Thank God you are now with Jesus
Give him a big hug for us
Till we meet again

Brother Wale Agun, a soft spoken gentleman. He and his beautiful sweet wife served diligently in our Fathers House - The Fountain of Life Church. Your wife is one of the kindest women I know. She loves unconditionally.

You were a polite, cheerful and jovial man. You loved God and people. Your exit is painful. My husband cannot comprehend the fact that you are no longer here with us but we find consolation in fact that we will all depart too someday and reconciled with our Father in heaven.

Rest on Brother Wale ~ Thank you for serving and contributing to the growth of the kingdom of God. The seeds you have sown are a legacy for all you left behind.
Posted by Oreoluwa Ogunfadebo on May 19, 2020
My pastor as you always call me, your sudden dimense is shock and heartbroken but who are we to question the giver of life. The Lord that seat in heaven and does as it pleases Him.
Bro wale, it has pleased God to call you to eternal glory now continue to rest in the bosom of your creator.
We love you but God loves you more.

Wale po po po...that's what I used to call you and Bunmi would laugh. You were such a gentle and easy going soul. Underneath that gentle mien though, was a mischievous, teasing and comical personality.
Very humble and personable...there was no errand too big for you to run for Bunmi on my account...thank you for all those times. You were very supportive of Bunmi's business, her myriad of friends and acquired sisters.
We will all miss you but we will not sorrow like those who have no hope. Sleep on gentle giant...see you on the resurrection morning.
Posted by Ian Osei on May 19, 2020
Wale was a dear friend to me, my brother and sisters. We grew up together in Satellite Town as wily teenagers to adults going through life’s challenges daily. Wale was ever present at the tennis court, football field daily and especially during school holiday times when we all saw a lot of each other and got into all types of mischief. An immense personality, sense of humour with a warm and affectionate heart, Wale touched everyone who came into contact with him. Wale’s uncanny ability to provide nicknames for everyone was legendary. We were privileged to meet up in Accra Ghana as recently as last year 2019 when we relived some of these memories and reminisced with hilarity. Wale’s sudden death came as a complete shock to us all and we extend our heartfelt condolences to his family in their time of grief.
We will miss you our dear friend.
May your soul rest in eternal peace with our Lord. Farewell till we meet again.

My big bro Wale,

You played an integral role in my childhood and in turn, part of those who shaped me to be the woman I have become. You were my brother! How do I begin to write a tribute to you, I never thought this early, I was sure it had to be a mistake when I heard the shocking news. So many treasured memories from our childhood, what an impact you had on many of us, I speak on "close 16". You were one of those that initiated and maintained the solidarity we had on "close 16" You always had a sixth sense of humor and always a pleasure to be around. As a kid, whenever I heard Aghogherian soccer, I knew you were around the corner, cheering me on, boosting my confidence and making me laugh. How I long to hear you call me that... So protective of me like a true big brother! I will forever hold on to the fond memories. This is definitely a hard pill to swallow. Rest in heaven bro!
Posted by Henry Omene on May 18, 2020
Rest in Peace My chairman as I always call you. Wale Agun aka Oguroo the man who knows how to coin nicknames....till date the nickname( *the Prince of Mosogar*) you gave me has stuck like superglue....Even the way you call me is still ringing in my ears....You also visited my Dad at the hospital just few months ago. You are a true brother and friend....You even called me when my mum died just two months ago to console me and now you have gone to join her and all the departed souls.....RIP big bro Wals.

"Greetings Usher Wale"
"Greetings Lara croft"
Those were our saluting lines when we saw or talked on the phone.
You are one of my big brothers from another mother, ever ready to listen to me and give honest feedback. Ever ready to help me when I needed you. Ever jovial and down to earth.
A great dad to your daughter, you constantly prophesied greatness into her life each time you saw her, she is heartbroken now but more determined to make you very proud.
To say I will miss you is an understatement. We have been through many things together but this is a big blow.
Rest in peace my darling brother and friend. Enjoy the bosom of your Father.

“Friendship is everything. Friendship is more than talent. . .. it is almost the equal of family” (Don Corleone).

Man Waly, I have many fond memories of our teenage escapades so much so that I’m giggling as I write this short tribute. You were just too funny. I particularly recollect the ‘na Yinka teach me’ breakdance.

That story you shared with me in April reinforces my perception of the Ubuntu philosophy – I am because we are.

Thanks for your regular WhatsApp chats/phone calls and most of all for being a great friend/brother.

As the saying goes – memories don’t leave like people do, they always stay with you. I would continue to cherish the memories we made. I’m proud of you Wale. Sleep well.

Dear Uncle wale,

It’s so hard to believe you are no more but I know for sure that you are in a better place

You are such a cool person with an interesting personality, down to earth and gentle....I obviously can’t use past tense because you live on in our hearts.

I will surely miss you and I will miss buying kilish from Abuja. If I knew, I would have gotten a truck load of it the last time we saw.

I will be strong and there for my sweet mummy like I always call her
Rest on dearest uncle ❤️

It's so sad to come to terms that you have finally left this sinful world. I look back at the moment shared with us,your advise and words of wisdom.

Uncle Wale so you are gone to the beyond...I remember how you use to tell me I shouldn't think that things will be alright. I still looked at your last chat in which you were discussing on opportunities inherent in this Covid-19 pandemic period.

You are greatly missed I must say. World Boss...Stay Cool in God's Bossom...We meet to path,we path to meet and we meet to path no more...Till we meet again...

I heard the news of your demise, but was too shocked to say anything.
You offered to pick me up to attend the last set reunion at Eko Hotel, you fulfilled you promise and even offered to take me home.
We talked at length on our way to and from the reunion venue. We promised ourselves that we would always find time to hook up and talk.
Tried getting across to you on several occasions but to no avail but to be met with the rude shock of your loss.
Hmmm, this life sha!
