Family Opens Up: Cause of Adeleke’s death still unknown

The family of late Senator Isiaka Adeleke has said the cause of his death is yet to be determined.
The late politician’s younger brother, Deji, yesterday at a news conference in Ede, Osun State, advised Nigerians to ignore “gossips” in the social media attributing Adeleke’s death to an injection overdose.

He said it will take one to two weeks before the result of autopsy conducted on the late Adeleke will be ready to determine the cause of his death.

Saying that the Adeleke family is still grieving the loss, he advised his brother’s supporters to shun violence and maintain peace as a mark of honour to the memory of the deceased.

He noted that late Adeleke ought to have been buried earlier than Monday as a Muslim, but added that the family resolved to do the autopsy on him to know the cause of his death.

According to him, the late senator was not a violent politician and, therefore, the youths should not engage in destructive activities on account of his name.

He said: “My brother never encouraged thuggery or violence during his lifestyle. His death is painful and the family is still dreaming whether he is alive or not because our brother was not sick before his sudden death.

“We have cried and cried but we cannot query God. However, we want to mourn our late brother in peace and not violence. I want to use this opportunity to appeal to the people to stop speculations and spreading rumours about the cause of his death.”

He insisted that nobody could say the cause of the death of his brother until autopsy result is out.
