Adeleke’s Family Rejects Aregbesola’s Inquest Into Senator’s Death

The family of Senator Isiaka Adeleke, has rejected
the coroner inquest instituted by Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola
into the death of the first civilian governor of the state.

The immediate younger brother of the deceased, Deji Adeleke, who read
the family’s address at a press briefing in his residence in Ede on
Sunday, said the outcome of the inquest had been predetermined.

The briefing also has Ademola; Dupe Adeleke-Sani and other members of the family in attendance.

Deji Adeleke said, ” The family hereby denounces in its entirety the ill
advised and self serving coroner’s inquest ordered by the Osun State
Government purportedly set up to determine the cause of death of our
dearly beloved Senator Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke.

“We condemn in strictest terms the continuous politicization attempts by
the state of this great loss to our family, particularly the ordering
of this inquest at a time we are still coming to terms with the harsh
reality of his sudden departure and the pain and grief therefrom.

“We have been reliably informed by credible sources that the outcome of
the kangaroo inquest is already predetermined by the state and designed
to serve its own interest with distorted facts and misinformation which
will clearly not be in the interest of the good people of Osun in
general and the Adeleke family in particular.”

Adeleke died in early of Sunday April 23 after he was said to have attended to guests till around 2:am the same day.
