The Yoruba Self-determination and Advancement Forum (YOSEDAF) has commiserated with the Yoruba nation on the demise of founder of the Yoruba Socio-cultural group, the Odua Peoples Congress (OPC), Dr. Frederick Fasehun, who died, yesterday, in Lagos.
It was learnt that the octogenarian died at the Intensive Care Unit of Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja, where he had been admitted since Tuesday.
YOSEDAF, which expressed sadness over Fasehun’s death, through its Convener, Evangelist Kunle Adesokan, said popular Yoruba platforms had lost a dependable voice and rallying point with his death.
He said: “Indeed, his death marks the end of an era. He was a General in the frontline of popular struggle. He was a father figure the young and old looked forward to. His death has occurred at a most inauspicious time, when the Yoruba nation needs direction from a man of courage like him. 
“He would be remembered for standing against oppression of Yorubas, and everyone whose rights were trampled upon in the society.” 
YOSEDAF urged all popular platforms in the country to give him a befitting burial.

The body also called for immortalisation of the deceased by governments of the states in the Southwest.

“If any Yoruba deserves to be honoured with monuments in Yoruba land, Dr. Fasheun is unarguably one of such persons,” it said.
