Late Adegeye was an astute politician, who represented  Amuwo-Odofin state constituency at the sixth  legislative  assembly,  from 2011 to 2015.
 
The Lagos state  APC  Publicity Secretary, Mr Seye Oladejo, made this known in a statement  on Tuesday.
 
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Risikat Adegeye, was one of the wives of  Juju legend, King Sunny Ade (KSA).
