Death conquers 'Serubawon' as Adeleke dies at 62

The first civilian  governor of  Osun and  serving Senator, Isiaka Adeleke, is dead.

He died at the age of 62 in the early hours of Sunday at a private hospital in Osogbo after succumbing to a protracted ailment.

The atmosphere at the residence of the former governor in Ede 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 won again on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
