Delivering his sermon, Bishop of Ondo Anglican Diocese, Rt. Revd. Stephen Adeniran Oni implored christians to strive to be known as God’s children in all their doings rather than doing evil.

He said physical death is inevitable as he admonished christians to watch their conducts and prepare for death, adding that spiritual death can be avoided by making the right choice of accepting Jesus and living a holy life.

Oni described the deceased as a God fearing man, saying that the only joy he had was that the deceased had Christ when he was alive.

Former Governor of Ondo State, Dr Olusegun Mimiko described late Bademosi as a patriotic Nigerian that was loved by everybody.

Also speaking, the wife of the deceased, Mrs Ebunoluwa Bademosi described the death of her husband as shocking.

She described the deceased as not only husband but adviser, confidant, mentor, proverbial ‘Omoluabi’ dignified, always pristine in appearance and a good man in all ramifications.

On his part, the deceased brother, Architect Folu Bademosi described his brother as a good and kind man willing to help others.

He advised the family to encourage themselves by giving thanks to God always, adding that God of justice will fight for them.

He therefore urged the government especially the Nigeria police not to compromise but to look for the truth and make sure that justice prevail.

Also, the son of the deceased, Adedamola Bademosi said that one of the most important things he learnt from his father is being cheerful and joyful regardless of the circumstances.

He therefore thanked him for living a wonderful and cheerful life, saying he will always be remembered in his heart as he is irreplaceable.

Late Chief Opeyemi Olusola Bademosi died at the age of 67 and he is survived by wife Ebunoluwa Bademosi and children.
