Death struck in the mid-morning hours of Monday 9th January 2014, taking away a man precious to the Church in the Catholic Diocese of Oyo and especially the Communications Commission of Oyo Diocese, Mr Augustine Bimbo Alade. A very active man in both the Church and society, he was quite hale and hearty until a few minutes before he passed on. In fact he was the serving Pastoral Council Chairman of the Cathedral of Our Lady of Assumption Cathedral, Asogo, Oyo.

Mr. Bimbo Alade, served in the Communications Department of the Catholic Diocese of Oyo even before the Diocese of Osogbo was carved out. Working with the likes of Bishop Emmanuel Badejo, Rev. Fr. Dr. Joseph Faniran, Fr. Thomas Ajayi, Fr. Michael Falade, and Fr. Martin Badejo to mention a few. He is well known in the news houses in Oyo State, especially at the Catholic Weekly Independent, as a news correspondent. He also served meritoriously as an executive member of the National Union of Teacher at the State Level in Oyo State. He is survived by his wife and children.

As announced by the family, his burial will hold on Saturday 11th January 2014 at Our Lady of Assumption Cathedral, Asogo Oyo, at 10 am.
