Vanguard also reported that Aregbesola had signed an executive order setting up a coroner inquest into the death of the Senator on May 2, according to Coroner Law Cap 32 Vol I Law of Osun, 2002.

This was what Deji Adeleke said:

“We condemn in strictest terms the continuous politicization attempts by the state of this great loss to our family, particularly the ordering of this inquest at a time we are still coming to terms with the harsh reality of his sudden departure and the pain and grief there from”

Mr. Deji also mentioned that reliable sources had informed them that the outcome of the kangaroo inquest had already been predetermined by the state.

“It is also designed to serve its own interest with distorted facts and misinformation which will clearly not be in the interest of the good people of Osun in general and the Adeleke family in particular”, he added.

Senator Adeleke died on Sunday, April 23 and was buried on April 24.
