Aregbesola to set up panel to probe Adeleke’s death

Gov. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun has said the government would set up a panel to probe the cause of the sudden death of Sen. Isiaka Adeleke,
Aregbesola made this promise in a statement by Mr Semiu Okanlawon, his media aide.
The statement sounded more like a tribute by Aregbesola to the departed senator, who also happened to be his neighbour in Ikeja, Lagos.
He described Adeleke as a man of peace, who he said defected from the Peoples Democratic Party ahead of the August 2014 governorship poll in the state because he could not stand violence.
According to the governor, the state government had planned a befitting state burial for the late politician but was scuttled by some person ” crying more than the bereaved” who unleashed terror on dignitaries, who came to honour the departed soul.
“Senator Adeleke was a man of peace. He preached peace and lived it through his life.
“He left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) because he could not stand violence.
“This was after he was beaten up by some leaders of the PDP during a meeting in a hotel in Osogbo.
“It is a profound irony and most unfortunate therefore that a few disgruntled elements purporting to protest his death desecrated his funeral with violence and attacks on innocent persons.
“They dishonoured him and did his memory a great disservice by keeping his friends, political associates and well-wishers away from his burial.
“The best we could do in the circumstance was to declare three days of mourning throughout the state and fly national, state and our party’s
flags at half-staff in his honour.
“The State Government of Osun, using the instrumentality of the law, is setting up an inquest to unravel the circumstances of this unfortunate and sad incident, in order to put the record straight on his death.
“He is irreplaceable in our hearts. We commiserate with his family, the good people of Ede, associates, friends, constituents and generality of our people on the passage of this patriot.
“As we pray for the repose of his soul, we equally pray for the strength to bear this heavy loss”.
Adeleke, who was representing Osun West Senatorial District, died on April 23.
