Angry youths in Ede, Osun State have attacked Mrs Idiat Babalola, the Senior Special Adviser to Gov. Rauf Aregbesola on Diaspora.

Babalola, who came for the burial of Sen. Isiaka Adeleke, who died on Sunday, was mobbed by the youths who prevented State Government officials from attending the burial, alleging that the senator was poisoned.

It took the intervention of policemen with an order from the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Fimihan Adeoye, who was present at the late senator’s residence, to ferry her out.

The atmosphere at the late Adeleke’s house was tensed as sympathisers and family members were weeping profusely in spite the heavy presence of security personnel.

Adeleke was later buried at his residence. The corpse was brought to the residence from Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, at about 10:46 a.m., where the Chief Immam of Ede, Alhaji Moshood Akaje, performed the funeral prayers at about 11:03 a.m.

Adeleke’s body was immediately buried after the prayers amidst tears by families, friends and political associates.
Governors Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti and Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun were among the dignitaries that attended the burial.

Earlier in his sermon, Alhaji Ibrahim Adekilekun, the Chief Imam of Ansarudeen, Ede, described Adeleke as a man loved by all during his life time. Adekilekun, who noted that death is inevitable for all humans, urged family members not to fight anyone over Adeleke’s death.

Meanwhile, the Osun Government has declared a trhee-day mourning in the state. This is contained in a statement by Mr Semiu Okanlawon, media aide to Gov Rauf Aregbesola. “This is in honour of the departed first Civilian Governor of the State of Osun, Alhaji Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke.

“The 3-day mourning period commences from Monday, April 24, 2017. During the period of mourning, all flags are to fly half mast,” the statement said.

Adeleke, 62, was the Senator representing Osun West Senatorial District at the Senate under the platform of All Progressive Congress (APC) before his death on Sunday at a private hospital in Osogbo.
