Adeleke’s family faults death inquest


The family of late former Osun State Governor, Senator Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke, has denounced the coroner’s inquest ordered by the State government to determine the cause of death of the late politician.

The family also advised the people of the State to discountenance “this kangaroo inquest into the death of our beloved Senator Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke.”

Speaking on behalf of the family on Sunday, the deceased’s younger brother, Dr. Adedeji Adeleke, at a press briefing in the late senator’s Ede country home, described the coroner inquest as self-serving.

In company of the late politiician’s son, Dele, and younger siblings, Dupe Adeleke-Sani, and Demola, Dr. 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 that we are still coming to terms with the harsh reality of his sudden departure and the pain and the grief therefrom.”

“As part of our attempts to reach closure and commence our healing process, the family had earlier ordered an autopsy to be carried out. This is the only scientific and globally acceptable means of objectively determining the cause of his death and we look forward to the reports therefrom. This is irrespective of the obvious infrastructural and technogical limitations of medical laboratories in the country.

“We have been reliably informed by credible sources that the outcome of the ‘kangaroo inquest’ is already predetermined by the state and 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.

“We have, therefore, as a family resolved not to participate or cooperate with the ‘kangaroo’ styled panel set up by the state government as it was clearly to serve the state’s own political interests and ultimate establishment of its own self-serving ‘facts.’ While everyone including any government is entitled to his/her own opinion, the government inquest is an attempt to create its own ‘alternative facts.’ Facts are sacred and the truth is constant, alternative facts are nothing but falsehood.

“We are therefore compelled to reject the inquest with its predetermined outcome. We also urge the peace-loving people of Osun State to discountenance this ‘kangaroo’ inquest into the death of our beloved Senator Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke,” Dr Adeleke said.

He challenged the state government to explain to the people of Osun why it was in a hurry to order a coroner’s inquest when report of the autopsy ordered by the Adeleke family is yet to be delivered to the family.

He continued: “We wish to reiterate in te strongest terms that the report of the autopsy ordered by the family must be released to no one else other than the Adeleke family. To do otherwise by the medical team that is conducting the autopsy will be tantamount to gross professional misconduct actionable with appropriate sanctions in law.

“We sincerely hope that the concerned pathologists, who we regard and recorgnize as eminent and thorough-bred practitioners would act according to their professional calling and oath by expeditiously concluding. The autopsy and deliver the report to the Adeleke family, who are the only one entitled to it.”
