This is what has happened to Yinka Mafe, described as a gentle and amiable man.

Gradually but surely getting to the peak of his career, Mafe, the immediate past majority leader of Ogun State House of Assembly died barely hours after celebrating his 45th birthday in style at Tenth Planet & Suites in Sagamu, Ogun State on Tuesday, February 4th.
