Fayemi visits Odumakin’s home, condoles deceased’s wife
Ekiti State governor, Mr Kayode Fayemi, on Tuesday paid a condolence visit to the Lagos home of the late spokesperson of the pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Mr Yinka Odumakin, as well as that of an activist, Innocent Chukwuma, saying both of them left great legacies of selfless service and would be deeply missed.
Odumakin died on Saturday in a Lagos hospital, while Chukwuma, died on Sunday.
Fayemi, who was accompanied on the visits by his wife, Bisi was received by Odumakin’s widow, Dr Joe Okei- Odumakin and at Chukwuma home by Mrs Josephine Effah-Chukwuma.
The governor, who made this known on his Facebook page, said it was still hard coming to terms with the deaths of Odumakin and Chukwuma, adding that the two families “remain in our thoughts and prayers as they go through this very difficult period.”
He, however, prayed to God to rest their souls well.
