Fallen hero. Thank God for a life well spent, you imparted so many life, What a great loss to the entirely association and my city, Igbara oke.sleep on
The Lord you lived for, leads you on. It’s well (Isaiah 3:10).
Papa Israel Folorunso was a man of peace, he was known for cracking appropriate hilarious, lines, jokes and tales at meetings and congregations to the extent you would forget the much you had stayed. He would usually open and close his speeches with initiation of laughter. ASAN NIAS will greatly miss his leadership style. Rest in peace sir
I , Mr Raymond Isiadinso, on behalf of myself and family, my entire management and staff wish to commiserate with the families of our late president and torch bearer of our association – Prof FA Adu.
We cherish every moment of your life but God loves you most and have withdrawn you for a higher and better works in the heavenly realm.
May you continue to sleep in the bossom of your creator till we meet to part no more- Amen!
Your good deeds will speak on earth ages after your departure, they will speak even louder in heaven. May God rest your soul at His bossom, amen.
Your smiles, your jokes and quotes will be missed by all. You lived a life worthy of emulation. Rest on at the bossom of our Lord Jesus till we meet to part no more. Adiue Peof Adu.

A TRIBUTE TO LATE PROFESSOR ISRAEL FOLORUNSO ADU
The Class of 1972 at the Department of Animal Science, University of Ibadan (UI), has 8 graduating students in its Animal Science sub-set, distinct from the Animal Nutrition & Biochemistry group, which was the other sub-set. Folu (as we called Israel Folorunso Adu), Dayo Sofoluke, Ekpo, Pandey, myself and two others constituted that class. We had great lecturers – Baba Oyenuga, G.M. Babatunde, Olaloku, Almut Dettmers, Jorgen Steinbach, Ogunmodede, Ngere, and others, a star-studded field.
Folu, myself and other postgraduate students were drafted to join the inaugural conference of the Nigerian Society of Animal Production (NSAP) at the UI Conference Centre in 1973, a credit to Prof. Oyenuga and his team who instinctively sowed us as seeds for the future, a lesson for present-day academic leaders. One of those seeds, Folu, yielded bountiful harvests decades later: President of NSAP, founding member of Animal Science Association of Nigeria (ASAN) and President, Nigerian Institute of Animal Science (NIAS). Along the way, he was also Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), during which period he hosted several strategic meetings that birthed ASAN and NIAS.
As a portion of the Bible says, if I were to write everything noteworthy that Folu did, a thousand-page book may not contain it. He was not just a colleague he was a brother and fellow traveller on these professional highways: UI, National Animal Production Research Institute (NAPRI), FUNAAB, NSAP, ASAN, NIAS, Church Ministry, and so on. Leaving behind a wonderful family, friends and colleagues, his legacies will remain evergreen. Bye, good friend: You have done well. Rest in perfect peace.
YOU LIVE AND DIED GREAT
Since I came in contact with you around 1987 that you carried all Animal Science Students in the South West to Kaduna for NSAP conference, you told us your goal is to make us sound professional. That is what you pursued all through.
Last year when I called you on phone about our OGUN ASAN week I thought you will refuse because I called by phone and it was extremely close to the week you took us as a father will and you stood by us until we had the first successful week for OGUN ASAN. Sir I want to say that your work shall keep speaking long after you. Rest on worthy father of Animal Science.

RIP Prof.Emeritus I.F Adu!
The Lord comfort your family in Jesus name
A good heart has stopped breathing but a heart that has touched numerous lives cannot help again but live on in those it loved
The demise of Emeritus Prof. Isreal Folorunsho Adu came as a rude shock and at a time when his wisdom, knowledge and experience will be required by Animal Science Association of Nigetia and Nigerian Indtitute of Animal Science and the Nation at Large.
He was among the first batch of Fellow of NIAS in 2012 being in the fore in the struggle for the creation of Nigerian Institute of Animal Science. As a Fellow he contributed morally and financially to the activities of Board of Fellows, NIAS. Praying that he will granted peacful eternal rest and nucleus and extended family the fortitude to bear the great loss
Daddy Adu, You were an asset not only to the Animal Science profession but to humanity in general. You had a golden heart which bore no grudges nor mischief.
Your fatherly leadership style proved that you know and believed that life is transient and has an end. Alas, the end came when we still need your counsel and words of wisdom. But we humbly submit to the divine plan and will of God for you.
We are however consoled that you are resting in the bosom of the Lord. Rest in peace, till we meet to part no more. Adieu.
Eld. Lawan J.R. Ndirmbita, Second National Vice President ASAN.
The way death strike is always surprising but their is time and B/stop for everyone.
A whole Emeritus Prof. Israel Folorunsho ADU got to the Bus stop when we still need to tap more experience from him in the Livestock world. You will be greatly missed by your immediate and extended families. Your professional bodies like NIAS, NSAP and ASAN lost one of their best brains. May the good Lord grant all of us fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. RIP, Prof. Adu. You will be greatly missed. Rest on.

I personally lost a friend in our late Emeritus Professor. A leader that led with example, always encouraging the up & coming scientists.I got to know him more when he was the vice chancellor of FUNAAB as one of the then Exco of ASAN. He did everything he could (along with others) to ensure professionalisation of Animal Scientists. Very accommodating, always cheerful, full of sensible jokes. He & Prof. Iyayi were in my University to meet my then vice-chancellor on the issue of professionalisation of Animal Scientists. What a good leader we had in Late Emeritus Professor Israel Folorunso Adu! Because that very day at a very short notice he and the Registrar accepted my invite to them to attend a function completely outside his itinerary. He was a committed Animal Scientists to the core.
Prof. surely you will be greatly missed. I wish your soul find a peaceful rest in the bosom of our Lord Christ Jesus.
Adieu! Till we meet not to part again. Good night Prof.
Prof. I.F. Adu was the very essence of compassion of style & good leadership
He was a standard symbol for the right of truly depressed a very committed leader. animal scientist who transcended nationally.
In ages to come,centuries or millennia after us, people will remember this our own emeritus (Prof. I. F. Adu). Some know him as colleague,a member & above all a friend.
Adieu Prof.I.F. Adu: Continue to Rest in Peace until we meet to part no more
