“Such a very nice and humble man to the core. Always willing to help. My namesake toh sure.

Also speaking, Ajiferuke Temilola, one of the students of the lecturer, extolled the virtues of the deceased.
She said, “I don’t like to do this, but with tears in my eyes I write my last tribute/gratitude to you Dr. Ayodele. I met Dr when I was in 200L, it was a bad day for me, (story withheld ) which he genuinely helped and ever since, he has always been there for me anytime I needed his assistance. He has stayed true and through my journey as an undergraduate.
in his response, the Public Relations Officer the institution, Abiodun Olanrewaju said no statement for now because it is not a palatable issue.
