Here is what some of his friends has to say about him.

Augustus Caesar lived a life that would still be talked about even though he is no more. I remember our first meeting in Uniben. We became friends and exchanged contacts. Caesar always kept in touch. He would call and send sms, he never complained that I hardly keep in touch because I was classes ahead of him and always busy. Caesar was loved by all, he had a heart of gold and a perfect smile that melts your heart. Very eloquent young man, smart, neat and well dressed. My condolence goes to his family especially his twin brother. Rest in the bosom of the Lord my good friend. You will greatly be missed by me.

A procession was held for him yesterday, 11th May, 2014 at the Uniben Campus. May his soul rest in peace, amen.
