The founder of Yoruba Social Cultural group, Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), Fredrick Fasheun is dead.
Fasheun died earlier today, Saturday, December 1, 2018, at the Lagos State Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos.
The late 83-year-old medical doctor on Tuesday admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital where he remained until his demise.
Until his death, he was a medical doctor, a hotelier and owner, and leader of the Yoruba Social-cultural group, OPC.
The OPC is a Yoruba organization formed to actualize the annulled mandate of June 12 of Chief Mosshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola.
MKO was the winner of June 12 presidential election who was barred from office.
Fasheun was imprisoned for 19 months from December 1996 to June 1998, during the military rule of General Sani Abacha.
With the latest development, the National Coordinator, Aare Gani Adams is apparently the leader of OPC worldwide.
Before now there were factions in the group but after power tussle crisis, Aare Gani Adams and Fasheun united and announced the abolition of the factions to pave way for peace and unity in the Yoruba land.
Fasheun held the position as the founder until his death while Aare Gani Adams is still the National Coordinator.
