Jacob Odumakin, elder brother of Yinka Odumakin, the deceased spokesman of Afenifere, has said a prophecy had warned of the death of the latter.
He said prayers were organised to avert the prophecy from being fulfilled.
Odumakin, who is also a pastor, said this in a chat with The Punch.
“There was a prophecy that we should pray for Yinka so that fresh tree would not fall instead of the dry one. What that means is that our dad, who is 115 years old, is alive and 56-year-old, the last child of our father is gone,” he said.
Yinka Odumakin died on Saturday after reportedly suffering respiratory problems due to COVID-19.
Afenifere has reportedly pledged to organise his funeral.
