According to Global News sources in Osogbo,Osun State capital, irate youths in Ede and other adjoining towns took to the streets demanding what killed late Isiaka Adeleke. Some of them were openly saying his death was politically-motivated as he was going to become the next Governor of Osun State because of his popularity and philanthropic gestures.
We also learnt that these youths who displayed many placards to register their shock and displeasure over the untimely and shocking death of Isiaka who was unarguably the number one man-of-the-people in Osun State – did so ostensibly to ridicule the person of the incumbent State Governor who is believed to have anointed his own successor and candidate for the forthcoming Osun Gubernatorial Elections which comes up next year, which late Adeleke was also gunning for.
The height of humiliation came for Aregbesola on Monday during the burial of Adeleke.Aregbesola who could not attend the burial of Adeleke as he’s out of the country on official assignment had one of his aides Idiat Babalola ( who’s also a Commissioner nominee) attacked.Babalola who is widely believed to be the running mate of Aregbesola’s anointed successor was mobbed by irate youths at the premises of late Senator Isiaka Adeleke midway to the burial of the latter.
According to our sources, the crowd of sympathisers demanded that Babalola be made to leave the premises of the Ede, Osun State country home of the Adelekes.
The irate youths said Babalola was being touted to become the running mate of the anointed candidate of Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s and they would like her to stay away from the deceased home because she’s – in a way – an enemy of the late Senator.
