Dr Joe Okei-Odumakin has finally spoken out after the tragic death of her husband, Yinka Odumakin.
Odumakin, a longtime National Publicity Secretary of the pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, tragically passed away on Saturday at the intensive care unit of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.
As the tributes pour in from across the country, his wife in a statement said the Afenifere spokesman died due to COVID-19 complications after recovering from the virus.
“The sad event happened this morning (Saturday, 3/4/2021) at the intensive care unit of LASUTH where he was being managed for respiratory issues due to complications from COVID-19 which he had recovered from about a week ago,” she said.
“I appreciate the outpouring of grief and sympathy from home and abroad as I mourn my irreplaceable soulmate. I urge us all to remain steadfast in the cause of the masses to which he dedicated his life.
“Burial arrangement will be made public in due course.”
