Afenifere Spokesperson, Yinka Odumakin Dies Of COVID-19 (?) In Lagos Hospital

He died in the early hours of today due to complications from Covid-19, according to family sources.




The spokesman for the Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin,  is dead.

He died in the early hours of today due to complications from Covid-19, according to family sources.



Details of his death are still sketchy.

“I just spoke with Dr. Joe, his wife. She's in a panic mode. She said a part of her is gone. Odumakin had been in the ICU of LASUTH for the past one week after being transffered from IDH Yaba,” a source said.

Odumakin was a human rights activist who played a vital role in the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) that fought General Sani Abacha's regime after the annulment of the June 12, 1993 election.

He was the Apex Yoruba group's spokesman for over two decades, coordinating the publicity and public relations activities of the group.

He was also one of the Southern and Middle Belt Leaders' Forum (SMBLF) spokespersons, the body representing ethnic nationalities in the South-West, South-South, South-East and the Middle Belt.

Odumakin, married to another activist, Dr. Joe Odumakin, has been one of the strongest critics of the present government using the platform of the Afenifere.

He has consistently taken on the Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government over alleged impartiality and favouritism in appointment into various offices.

His voice was also very loud in condemning the activities of killer herders in the Yorubaland.

He recently warned the Federal Government against arresting Sunday Igboho, who recently issued a quit notice to the Fulani herders in Ibarapa Oyo State and subsequently ejected the Sarkin Fulani in Igangan.

The man, IMHO, is the most fearless spokesman of any Southern Nigeria socio-cultural organization.

He spoke truth to power and was CONSISTENT in his train of thoughts and opinions on Nigerian issues.
He was in love with RIGHT and quarreled constantly with WRONG.

BTW, a clear pattern is beginning to emerge in this pandemic.
It is beginning to look, to me, like this "Covid-19 thing" may actually be the apocalyptic rapture, because it seems to be taking the best of us!

Take a careful look around Africa, it is only the best that are falling to this pandemic.

Covid-19 won't see the satanic evil ones to take; it only takes the most righteous of us.
May God save his creation, Amen!

Not going to mourn him, because he has "escaped". I would rather mourn the evil world he left behind!
