Linda you don't use 'died and fatal' at the same time. They died in an auto crash or they were involved in an accident and it was fatal.

At 7pm I was shocked to my marrow when I heard of your death. I had sworn it was a rumour but I realised it was true in the end. OYEBANJO OLADEJI OKUNUGA, MY NATIONAL PRESIDENT, may your beautiful soul rest in peace. Adaptus may your soul rest in peace. JCI will never forget your selfless service to humanity.

The greatest shock of my life is the news of the death of friends whom we schooled together and joined an active citizens framework to better our lives and impact our environ.

Banjo is even closer, we lived in same environ for many years, sat out some mornings and evenings sharing ideas...

I suppose we need to learn some lessons from this tragedy. Though in tears as I write, and I do not apportion blames to the departed souls, however, I am of the suggestion that people at the rear seats of vehicles should please endeavour to use the seat belt while on journeys. I am thinking the lives of Ikenna Onwuka (National Treasurer) and George Onuma (Executive Secretary) currently in ICU at the UCH, Ibadan were saved by the grace of God and the use of seat belt. Oyebanjo and Agaptus seated at the rear as it is the norm on this part of the world were not on seat belt I suppose, hence the more impact of the incident on them and their eventual passing on to glory...

Adieu great colleagues, I pray that the Lord will fill the vacuums you have left behind in both families.

I also pray that the Lord quicken the recovery of George Onuma and Ikenna Onwuka.

Tragic, gory, indescribable a loss this is to us, we will miss you so much.

I saw Banjo on 30th April with his family after a very long time. We were all on a queue waiting to be served and he was playing and running after his little girl. I didn't have a chance to say hello to him, but for some reason I always remembered the scene of him running to catch his daughter who was just having fun.

I am still in shock and this only reminds me that we are here for a while, and we all someday will leave this earth. My heart goes to his wife, daughter and Mother...

I know you are in a better place Banjo and your legacy will go on. God will give us all the strength to bear the loss.

Adaptus, my heart goes to your family, friends and colleagues.

Rest in peace Banjo and Adaptus.
