Shocked and saddened but with total submission to the will of God. Yinka Odumakin lived a life of justice, fighting for justice and equity for all.

He was a man in total defense of justice and fairness for all. He had a life well spent,not how far,  but how well.


Just confirmed from JK Agbaje that we’ve lost Egbon Yinka Odumakin – a sad loss not just for the Yorubas but also the Nigerian polity.

Egbon exemplified the truth of being a good ethnic person in order to be a great National figure in the context of Nigeria’s configuration.

Yinka, you have played your part. You have dared to be different with your style. Always ready to stand by your views and clear positions. Never afraid to declare where you belong on any issue. We will continue where you left. Best rest assured, the civil society community you left behind will not disappoint you. Continue to rest in peace as we fight on. May the Almighty God accept you and provide strength to Joe, your aged parents and kid left behind. RIP- the Comrade. Dr Kayode Opeifa. Former, Commissioner of Transport, Lagos State.

Death is not when you can no longer breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbondioxide, death is when you cannot speak in the face of injustice & tyranny because you are afraid to die. You live on Yinka Odumakin!
May God give your family the fortitude to bear the loss. Rest in peace


Yinka Odumakin;It’s unusual for me to send a message to comrade Yinka without a response.That happened just yesterday.A principled activist,a dogged fighter and a distinguished Journalist he was.We lost an indomitable & irrepressible voice for justice.May his soul Rest In Peace.
