Yinka Odumakin’s wife cries for prayers

Activist Joe Okei-Odumakin, wife of the spokesman for pan-Yoruba group Afenifere Yinka Odumakin, has cried out for prayers to “survive” the sudden death of her husband.

Kemi Filani recalls that Odumakin died on Saturday at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital isolation centre.

“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,” his wife told PUNCH.

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

The newspaper also reported that a delegation of Yoruba leaders were on their way to the residence of Afenifere leader Ayo Adebanjo to break the news to him.
