The Spokesman for pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Mr Yinka Odumakin, has died of COVID-19.
His wife, Mrs Joe Okei-Odumakin, confirmed this to newsmen on Saturday.
It was gathered that Odumakin died at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) 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.
“He was okay 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,” Okei-Odumakin said.
