Breaking: Afenifere Leader, Pa Ayo Fasanmi, Dies At 94

Pa Ayo Fasanmi, a prominent elder statesman and leader of Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, has died at 94.

The nonagenarian died on Wednesday night after a brief illness, as confirmed by his son, Afolabi.

He wrote in a statement;

With gratitude to the Almighty God for a life well spent, we wish to announce the demise of our father, Senator Ayo Fasanmi, at the ripe age of 94 years.

Afolabi said his father, who was a Second Republic senator, died peacefully in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.

Until his demise, Fasanmi was the leader of Yoruba socio-cultural group, Egbe Afenifere, and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He joined the Obafemi Awolowo-led Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN) in 1978 and was a candidate in the Ondo State governorship primary election but lost to Adekunle Ajasin, the former governor of Ondo State.
