The Oyo State Governor, Sen. Abiola Ajimobi, has described the death of the foremost leader of the Pan-Yoruba Socio-cultural Organisation, Afenifere, Sir Ajayi Olaniwun, as a huge blow that has decimated the hierarchy of true Yoruba leadership.

Ajimobi said this in a statement revealed by his Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy to the Governor, Mr Yomi Layinka, said that Afenifere, the entire Yoruba and the country at large have lost a rare, committed and disciplined leader of repute.

The governor recalled that the late leader proved to be a dependable rallying point when patriots were in the trenches to extort power from the military, which made him one of the very few heroes and heroines of the democracy the country now enjoys.

Also Ajimobi condoled with the family, friends and associates of the legendary Olaniwun and prayed for the repose of his gentle soul as they plan on giving him a befitting burial.
