The National Publicity Secretary of the pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin has passed away from Covid-19 related complications.

Yinka, died at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital isolation centre on Saturday morning, April 3.

Confirming the news of his death to newsmen, his wife, Joe Okei-Odumakin said:

“A part of me is gone. A part of me is gone. He fought hard at the intensive care unit. Pray for me to survive this. My love is gone.

“He was OK before. Even on March 10 he was still attending meetings. He was recovering yesterday but he died this morning. I am at the intensive care unit. A part of me is gone.”

The ex Secretary of Afeniferè in Kwara State, Chief Wole Oke described Yinka Odumakin’s death as very unfortunate and sad.

Speaking in an interview with Vanguard in ilorin, Chief Wole Oke said, “The death of Chief Yinka Odumakin is very shocking and most unfortunate. The mystery of life is that death will come at God’s appointed time and take people away. Yoruba nation has lost a true and genuine defender of her cause.

“His presence will even be sorely missed during this period of our nation when his presence is needed most.

“My prayer is that the Yoruba nation will get another person that is as committed and genuine in pursuing the cause of Yoruba nation like Yinka Odumakin did during his lifetime.”
