Adeleke’s death: Doctor allegedly quizzed for drug overdose
One of the aides of Senator Isiaka Adeleke has said one Dr. Ade, who treated Senator Isiaka Adeleke, when he complained of leg pain early Sunday morning has been arrested for interrogation by the police.
The source said the doctor was arrested on Monday, following the report that Adeleke died as a result of an overdose of medications he administered on him.
Although the report of the post mortem has not been made public, the aide said the doctor was arrested on Monday.
However, the Commissioner of Police in Osun State, Mr. Fimihan Adeoye, did not pick calls put across to his line to either confirm or deny the rumour.
He also did not respond to the text message sent to him for the same purpose.
There is a widespread belief by many of his supporters that he was poisoned by his political enemies because he was hale and hearty on Saturday during the social functions he attended and that he received guests until around 2:00am on Sunday before he slept.
The source said, “ The doctor is being held by the police. You know when a thing like this happens and with the controversy surrounding his death, it is proper for the police to ask him questions.”
