Autopsy Report Reveals High Levels of Banned Substance in Late Adeleke

Autopsy Report Reveals High Levels of Banned Substance in Late Adeleke

Alfred Aderibigbe, who treated late Senator Isiaka Adeleke earlier before his death has disclosed that he was sedated and given banned Analgin drug to ease his leg pains.

Aderibigbe, however, said all the medications he applied on the late senator before his death were in compliance with prescriptions given to him by the deceased.

"The drugs which the senator kept with me that were to be administered on him were Analgin injection, Diazepam injection, photroine injection and hydrocortisone".

Mr. Adeleke, however, said the family was anxious over the statement credited to Mr. Lasisi at the coroner inquest that the lawmaker died as a result of overdose of a banned injection when the result of the autopsy was yet to be delivered to the family.

Aderibigbe, who was being led in evidence by his counsel, Barrister Lekan Alabi said Adeleke was hypertensive and had gaouty arthritis, saying "I treated him as a nurse and not as a doctor and I never prescribed any drug for him throughout my 20 years of relationship with him".

He said: "I saw the corpse".

Late Adeleke, a three-term senator on the platform of the APC, was popularly called "Serubawon" and was preparing to contest the 2018 governorship election in Osun state.

Aderibigbe said it was later he found out that the little girl was Adeleke's daughter and the Senator later sent for him and gave him some money.

The witness told the coroner that he served Adeleke Remmy Martins, but the senator brought his own Remmy Martins from his vehicle which he drank together with his friends. There was no protein in it, that is, there was neither meat nor fish and the food was not covered.

"As I am talking to you, I have not set my eyes on the result", he said. And he said, 'Se tori wipe kosi eran lori e?' (Is it because there is no meat on it?). He then took his fork and stretched his hand to take a piece of fried fish from someone sitting close to him but his fork couldn't pick it because the fish was fried. He was full of life and was cracking jokes.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun West Senatorial District, Mr Amobi Akintola has cleared the air on a rumour making the round.

He was also the first civilian governor of Osun State between January 1992 and November 1993 on the platform of defunct Social Democratic Party (SDP).

She tendered her manifest for April 22 as an exhibit before the coroner chairman, Mr Olusegun Ayilara.

Deji Adeleke, the immediate younger brother of the deceased, said this at a news conference on May 7, in Ede, the Adeleke's hometown.
