The immediate past majority leader of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Yinka Mafe, has died.

Mafe died on Tuesday night shortly after celebrating his 46th birthday.

The lawmaker was said to have complained of chest pain after the celebration and died shortly after.

His remains have been deposited at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH) Mortuary, Sagamu.

Earlier on Tuesday, the deceased organised a prayer session at his country home in Emuren as part of activities to celebrate his birthday.

He reportedly visited inmates and warders at the Nigeria Correctional Centre, Sagamu before the proper birthday celebration which took place at Tenth Planet & Suites in Sagamu and was attended by party faithful, well-wishers, associates and his MafeLafe political team.

Born February 4th, 1974, Mafe was elected the Councillor of Ward three in Sagamu Local Government Legislative Council in December 1998, a term which ended in 2002.

Mafe represented Sagamu Constituency I (Ofin) at the State House of Assembly between 2011 and 2019 on the platform of the all Progressives Congress (APC) formerly Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN).
