My Father Was Killed Because Of His Gov Ambition – Adeleke’s Son
Tunji, one of the children of the first civilian Governor of Osun State,
Senator Isiaka Adeleke, has alleged that his father, who was preparing
to contest in the 2018 governorship election in the state was killed.
Although he did not state how he was killed, he said Adeleke, who was
also the senator representing Osun-West at the Senate until his death,
was killed by some forces because he stood a good chance of emerging the
governor of the state again.
Tunji, who said this in a snapchat on Tuesday, said that some persons,
who he did not name, eliminated his dad because they considered him a
big threat to their ambition ahead of the next year election.
He said it was curious that his father, who was hale and hearty on
Saturday preceding his sudden death and was awake till around 2 am on
Sunday morning, could die a few hours later without showing any sign of
Tunji believed that his dad was killed by those who were jealous of his
influence and money which he said they wanted by all means.
His claim was not different from the position of many of Adeleke’s
supporters, who said that their benefactor was poisoned at one of the
social functions he attended within the state on Saturday.
