In modern day Ogun State Politics, Asiwaju Barrister Yinka Mafe is a force to be reckoned with; most expecially, in the Remo axis of the state. His wide influence cut across all age starta, including the youth populace.
The former Member of Ogun state house of Assembly representing Sagamu 1 constituency was widely loved by his people.

On Tuesday the 4th of February, the former Ogun Assembly Majority leader celebrated his 46th birthday with a log of activities attached to it.
He announced the activities vis his social media handles. At the dawn of the day, he had Christain and Muslim prayers at his Country Home before moving to the Correctional Facility in Sagamu to celebrate with inmates.
In the evening at about 6pm, he retired to his hotel for an after party, where he converged friends and family in celebration mood.
If a soothsayer had told the Arole Asiwaju of Remo land his birthday was end in tragedy; a day he would return to answer the call of his creator, the Law Graduate from the University of Benin would have fought tooth and nail over such prophesy.
Indeed tragedy strucked, the big elephant fell, unable to stand. The Masters degree holder in International Business Law from the Cambridge University, bid the world farewell at about 11pm, before getting to the Olabisi Onabanjo University Hospital OOUTH, where he was moved to for medical assistance.
Those sharing in in pot full of joy are now mourning his shocking demise. A close source narrated the incident to Society Rendezvous that; “This incident is a tragic one, it’s a colossal loss to Ogun state; most especially the youth demography.
Yinka Mafe is a rare gem, who is committed to the development of his immediate environment. We were together all through his birthday. He was relaxed, calm in his usual happy mood.
At about some minutes to 11pm, at the get together birthday soiree organised at his Tenth Planet Suits Sagamu, he stood up suddenly and held his chest dearly.
When we asked repeatedly what happened, he said he felt an heavy pain like a sharp object pierced him.
Suddenly, he slumped before we could move him to OOUTH, he breathed his last breath. From medical investigation, doctors alledged he must have suffered from Acute Cardiac arrest.”
The source further added that; “For those who don’t know, several years ago, Hon. Mafe lost his mother to the cold hands of death on his birthday, 4th of February.
He also lost his life on same day he was celebrating his birthday. His burial arrangement is yet to be decided as his immediate family are not based in the country.
Arrangement are being made for his wife Arike Mafe and his kids Aderinsola, Odunmolorun and Mitchelle Oyindamola to jet back into the country from their base in the United Kingdom before plans for a befitting burial can take off.” (The Nation)
