A close friend of the deceased, Prof. Samuel Oluwalana of the Department of Forestry and Wildlife Management, College of Environmental Resources Management (COLERM), said late Prof. Momoh was a thorough-bred professional colleague, quiet and never an intrusive man, who always quantifies the amount of words he spoke at any given time.
