Senator Isiaka Adeleke

The death of the first civilian governor of Osun State, Isiaka Adeleke, has been linked to excessive dose of analgesics, sedatives and alcohol.

Sholaja, while giving evidence before the coroner, Chief Magistrate Olusegun Ayilara, said the autopsy carried out by him and two other pathologists from Ladoke Akintola University Hospital, Osogbo, revealed that the late senator died of “aspiration of gastric content due to multiple drug overdose.’’

“Aspiration of the gastric content blocked his airwaves through depriving the body of oxygen which was also evident in the bluish discolouration shown on some parts of the deceased’s body,’’ he said.


He said the used containers of the drugs administered on him indicated that a banned drug, Analgin injection as well as Diazepam injection, Pentasozine injection, Gentamicin and Hydrocortisone drugs were given to him.

The Chief Medical Director of Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, Wale Lasisi, who testified before the corona on Monday had spoken in the same vein, saying that one of the drugs administered on Adeleke was Analgin, a drug banned by NAFDAC several years ago.

He also told the coroner that the person who administered the drug was neither a medical doctor nor a nurse.
