  1. Omena was my classmate for 5 years and I learn from him calmness, humility and above all caring for others even at your own discomfort. I remember even our days in the University, he never looked down on anybody.Miss you my Friend

  2. As a Classmate to Late Omena “Joe 90 “Akpevwiehor at Egba Heights in Nigeria between 1983 and 1988, I learnt a lot from him. Firstly, he was such an unassuming personality. Despite his relatively wealthy family background and one of the “Ajebutters” in our midst, he flowed with everybody and carried on well with Teachers and Juniors. He had almost a near permanent gentlemanly look and I never saw Omena getting angry one day, even in our UNIBEN days in the 90s.Secondly, he was a very intelligent person. He was one of the best in Geography and a force to reckon with in English Language and Physics. His handwriting appeared printed and it was enough for Teachers to give him good marks. Thirdly, neatness and proper dressing were his nature. Also, Omena protected Juniors at Egba Heights from oppression that was a part of Dormitory life then and because of his nature, most Seniors conceded to him. Amongst his Classmates, Omena was one of those to be consulted in times of needs and he was always there naturally and objectively. In our last conversation, I accused him of sneaking into Town to bury the Father. He apologized and said “I will see you guys when next I come around, this trip did not go the way I planned it”
    I guess there will be no next trip Omena as you left without saying goodbye!
    You are sorely missed my Brother and Friend!
    Sleep Well Omena!
