The spokesperson of the group, Yinka Odumakin, stated this during an interview with Punch on Thursday.
He said, “He lived a long life of fulfilment and we pray his soul rests in perfect peace.”
Odunmakin further stated that Afenifere would send in a tribute to the late Yoruba leader later.
Fasanmi until his death was the leader of Yoruba socio-cultural group, Egbe Afenifere, and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress.
He joined the Obafemi Awolowo-led Unity Party of Nigeria in 1978 and was a candidate in the Ondo State governorship primary election but lost to Adekunle Ajasin, the former governor of Ondo State.
Fasanmi subsequently won a senatorial seat in Ondo State.
