Amosun said in his tribute at the Police College, Ikeja venue of the event that the late Odumakin meant well for the people, as a friend of the masses and of Nigeria.

“It does not matter how long one lived but the impact one made while alive matters. Yinka was a fighter who would pursue whatever he believed in day and night.
