    An easy going and trustworthy brother. The bro that encourages me to be closer to Jesus in the college days (OVCF). I will always remember your calmness and energy towards God's work . Goodbye. May God continue to be with the family you left behind. Adieu

    This feels so unreal!!! I still find it difficult to believe you're gone. When we last saw that Wednesday at the office, I had no inkling it was the last time I would see you, sit with you, talk to you or learn from you; you were full of life and plans....  more

    Words fail me but I take solace in God that you have gone to rest from all life's stress. You were a brother I admired so much, you worked so hard to see us closely knitted despite your tight schedule and you didn't fail in your fatherly role.

    Bro Owolabi, the news of your demise came as a shock. You loved the Lord. You were a man of prayer. Thank you for showing us a true example of someone who is completely sold out to God. Thank you for your visits to ovcf Ayetoro and your words of...  more

    It was a big shock to hear last Sunday that you're no longer with us. You were so full of life and excitement. Over the years your brother has always jisted me about your exploits together. And have known through his stories how precious you were to him....  more

    Uncle Owolabi was one of the loveliest persons I've encountered. Uncle Owolabi and my father were character twins. Whenever we met, he was always lively and cheerful. He was the boisterous, gregarious uncle who brightened things up. Uncle was a hard...  more

    I want to say bro Owolabi's indelible impact is cherished greatly. I met him as a member of ovcf, he was one of the alumni member (OVCAF) that I always look forward to hearing, seeing in our reunion. I tried to be unassuming in any fellowship, group or...  more

    It's been so difficult to do this...
    Hearing the news of your lifting up was so shocking.
    Not in my wildest dreams would I have thought I could hear about your demise just like that.
    Thank you for giving your all.
    Thank you for been so audacious with...  more

    The words fail, in fact, there are no words; my mind has refused to accept it; it’s not even adding up and the words are not connecting; Bro Owolabi, dead? Ko make sense now ? How does someone who was so very alive, become dead suddenly? Bro Owolabi...  more

    How do you do it, how did you do it?
    Your devotion to us individually is legendary. We all kind of think we are close to you when actually, you're the one in our worlds.

    Your relevance across all generations in Ovcaf is unrivalled. You don't use your...  more

      Samuel Olupelumi Bros Owo, that's the way we call you. We never related as in - laws, but as brothers. I was so free with you. You always encouraged us giving us assurance of prosperous future. Receiving your lifeless body and depositing it at the morgue was a painful...  more

    Mon pere. You are one of a kind. I met you as a firebrand for Jesus. You taught me so much- how to pray, to study God's Word, to be the finest soldier of Jesus Christ that I could be. Your dedication, your fortitude, your integrity, your wide smile and...  more

      Bro Owolabi exit is a rude shock to me. I have never cry deeply like I did when I got the flash of the news that you are gone. The last time I cry so much like this was when my Dad passed on 30 years ago.

      I belong to the...  more

      Ahmed Abbas Dear Bro Owolabi,

      We met in class and OVCF.

      Your love for people is legendary.
