BEVERLY HILLS, April 24, (THEWILL) – The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, on Saturday named the Ife-Moro road after the late Afenifere spokesperson, Yinka Odumakin.

The Oba, represented by Kemade Elugbade at the funeral of Odumakin in Moro, described the late Afenifere chieftain as an unforgettable patriotic descendant of Oduduwa and a positive factor in Nigeria’s democracy.

He said: “Odumakin’s death was a rude shock when the Yoruba nation in particular and Nigeria at large needed him.

“The news of his demise was a very bitter pill to swallow for the entire country and to us particularly in the House of Oduduwa.

“He was a disciplined Yoruba leader who has been one of the loudest pro-democracy voices in the country,” he said.
