He was immediately rushed to Igando General Hospital where he died few hours later.
Recently, the Dean of Management Science Faculty, Professor Oyedijo slumped and died in his car.
LASU students where however quick to blame obesity for the death of Prof Omikorede.
Here is a touching tribute one of his students wrote on Facebook few hours ago
“I started it all. I was on my way out of Country Club, Ikeja, he was coming in, and I greeted him “my in-coming.” Shocked as he was, he had a ready made response for me, “How are you my out going.” He got the joke. However, a lot of people were in the dark about the unique way we used to greet each other and he would take pains to explain to them.
Our paths crossed at Methodist Church Opebi , Ikeja. He grew to be a brother in whom I am well pleased. A happy go lucky fellow. We always throw banters each time we met, at any occasion, in any circumstance.
Who will tell me his sudden demise is a joke? Who will assure me this is just one of his antics, aimed at creating and maximising attention? Who will assure me Prof Wole Omikorede is not gone for good?
This life. This futile life. This unpredictable life. This short life. This cruel life.
Prof. Wole Omikorede, you were always mimicking Maami’s obituary poster by telling me “Bye for a while.” Now, it is for real. Indeed, bye for a while. I have assurance, we will meet again to part no more.
Painful. Painful. Painful.”
