Isiaka Adeleke Wasn’t Murdered – Brother


Deji Adeleke, brother to late Senator Isiaka Adeleke has dismissed claims that he was murdered.

Senator Adeleke, who was the first civilian Governor of Osun State, died on Sunday, April 23, in Osogbo.

He was earlier reported to have died of a heart attack after an overdose of painkillers.

However Deji Adeleke said, on Wednesday, April 26, that the cause of the senator’s death is still unknown.

The younger Adeleke said, during a press conference at the senator’s home, that the report of the autopsy carried out on the deceased would be out in one to two weeks.

According to Punch, he also urged his brother’s supporters to embrace peace because the senator was not known for violence while he was alive.

Chaos erupted at Adeleke’s funeral on Monday when a group of youths crashed a canopy on Governors Ibikunle Amosun and Rotimi Akeredolu of Ogun and Ondo states respectively.

The youths were trying to attack an incoming commissioner, Idiat Babalola.

Babalola was eventually escorted out of the venue by Amosun and his security aides.
