Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke, first civilian governor of Osun State, senator and philanthropist, is dead.
He died early yesterday at Biket Medical Centre, Osogbo, the state capital, where he was rushed to after complaining of stomach upset. He was 62.
His death, coming less than 24 hours after attending a social function at Kuta, Ile-Ogbo in the Ayedire Local Government Area of the state, sparked protests by some youths, who alleged that no food poisoned.
A family source said the Ede-born senator complained of serious stomach upset and asked one of his aides to fetch his younger sister, Dupe.
