The coroner in charge of the inquest constituted by the Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola to probe the cause of death of Senator Isiaka Adeleke, Olusegun Ayilara, has blamed the lawmakers death on drugs overdose.
Adeleke died on April 23, 2017. Ayilara, while giving his verdict on Tuesday ruled out poison as the cause of death.
He stated that no trace of poison was found in Adeleke’s system according to the autopsy and toxicologist reports. According to Ayilara, “The high dose of sedatives and analgesics with the mode of administration caused aspiration which culminated in death.”
The coroner which has been sitting for over three weeks had summoned 15 witnesses including nurse Alfred Aderibigbe who treated the late lawmaker before he died.
