Ex-Osun Governor Adeleke dies at 62
A serving senator and first civilian governor of Osun, Isiaka Adeleke, is dead.
Adeleke who had been down with unnamed illness for sometime died in the early hours of Sunday at a private hospital in Osogbo at the aged of 62.
A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at the residence of the former governor in Ede reports that the atmosphere was tense as his corpse was brought in at about 1:10 p.m, preparatory to the Islamic burial rites at 4:p.m.
A huge crowd of sympathisers and family members were seen weeping uncontrollably on sighting the corpse of the late flamboyant politician and socialite.
A two-term senator, Adeleke had won the Osun West senatorial seat on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in 2007.
He, however, defected from the PDP in the build up to the 2015 general elections and had won again on the platform of the All Progressives Congress(APC).
