The drama created within loyalists and family over the burial of first Civilian Governor of Osun state, Senator Isiaka Adeleke, who died on Sunday April 23, has been laid to rest as the popular politician has finally been buried.

 

Adeleke, 62, who was a serving senator and a three-term senator elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015, was buried on the morning of April 24, in his country home, Ede, Osun State according to Muslim rites.

 

It was gathered that Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State and Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State were at the venue of the burial to pay their last tribute to the late senator.

 

Meanwhile, the Osun state House of Assembly has declared Monday to Wednesday as mourning period in honour of the first civilian governor of the State, Senator Isiaka Adeleke. The Speaker, Najeem Salaam, gave the directive on Monday morning, April 24.

 

Also, there was said to be a mild drama when angry supporters of Adeleke, collapsed canopy on Governor Amosun and Governor Akeredolu to chase out Idiat Babalola, who is a commissioner nominee of Governor Rauf Aregbesola. Babalola who was seated among the dignitaries including the younger brother of the deceased, Deji Adeleke, was chased out by the youths who alleged that the former governor was poisoned by some APC leaders.

 

The irate youths said Babalola was being touted to become the running mate of the anointed candidate of the APC. Babalola was escorted outside the house by Amosun and his security aides as the youths threw sticks and mangoe fruits at her.
