Alfred Aderibigbe, the man who administered several injections on Osun senator, Isiaka Adekele, shortly before his death, has testified before the Corona inquest into the lawmaker’s, saying he was only one of many nurses the politician had in Lagos and Abuja.
Giving evidence at the inquest on Thursday in Yoruba, Mr. Aderibgbe said Mr. Adeleke consulted him for the past 20 years on matters relating to his health.
He was led in evidence by his counsel, Lekan Alabi.
According to Mr. Aderibigbe, he first met Mr. Adeleke 20 years ago while working as a nurse at the State Hospital, Ede.
He said he had attended to Mr. Adeleke’s daughter who was rushed to the hospital under convulsive condition, adding that the senator then appreciated his effort with a cash gift.
Mr. Aderibigbe explained that after the incident, he visited the senator regularly on his instruction.
“After a while, I started treating him,” he said. “Whenever he was given prescription and he probably didn’t complete his treatment in Abuja, I would administer the remaining.
“He had other nurses in Abuja, and some in Lagos.
