The Pan Yoruba Socio-Political Group, Afenifere, has debunked reports circulating online that its leader, Pa Ayo Adebanjo is dead.

A statement by the group Secretary General, Chief Sola Ebiseni, made available to newsmen in Akure, the Ondo state capital, stated that the elder statesman is hale and hearty.

Ebiseni in the state said that ” The attention of the Afenifere, apex Yoruba Socio-Political Organisation has been drawn to a statement making the rounds particularly in the media that our Leader, Chief Ayo Adebanjo is dead.

“Afenifere wishes to say that Chief Ayo Adebanjo, Leader of the Afenifere, whose 96th birthday was celebrated recently, is alive, hale and hearty.

“As a matter of fact Baba presided over a meeting till very late Saturday night where he received a report of a Committee of the Organisation led by Balogun Akin Osuntokun and other eminent Yoruba personalities.

” It is however not unlikely that the rumoured death might not have been a mistaken identity for another distinguished Yoruba son and former Vice Chancellor, University of Ibadan, Professor Ayo Banjo, whose death at the age of 90 years was reported on Friday''.
