The National Publicity Secretary of the pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin is dead.

According to a report by The Punch, he died at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital after a brief illness.

His wife, Mrs Joe Okei-Odumakin, confirmed this to newsmen on Saturday.

The Afenifere spokesman died at LASUTH Covid Isolation Centre.

Married to a fellow rights activist, Joe, in 1997, Odumakin’s voice was heard through the dark years of military despotism.

He played a major role in the National Democratic Coalition that fought the regime of late military head of state, General Sani Abacha, after the annulment of the June 12, 1993 election.

As Afenifere spokesman, Odumakin spoke tenaciously for the rights of the Yoruba and the people of the South-West geopolitical zone.

Just before his death, he consistently condemned the activities of criminal Fulani herdsmen, who have been accused of farmland destruction, rape, killings and abductions in the South-West.
