Superstar musician Davido on Monday took to his social media pages to mourn his uncle Senator Isiaka Adeleke, who passed on on Sunday.

“Heartbroken ? .. Rest In Peace My dear uncle …. SERUBAWON,” the singer wrote on Instagram.

Adeleke was confirmed dead at Biket Hospital, Osogbo.

Reports say he suffered a heart attack on Saturday night before he was rushed to the hospital.

Adeleke became the first elected Governor of Osun State in 1991 on the platform of the Social Democratic Party (SDP).

He represented Osun West in the Senate between 2007 and 2011 on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He defected to All Progressives Congress (APC), after a failed governorship bid under PDP in 2014. He won the senatorial seat in 2015 under the APC.

His burial which was scheduled for Sunday was postponed to today (Monday) so that an autopsy can be carried out on his corpse.

Supporters of late Senator Isiaka Adeleke (APC-Osun) on Monday collapsed the canopy where Governors Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun), Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), and Olagunsoye Oyinlola, and younger brother of the deceased Deji Adeleke during Adeleke’s funeral.

The burial ceremony was postponed till today (Monday) after Deji requested that an autopsy be carried out on the deceased.

Adeleke died on Sunday morning at Biket Hospital, Osogbo.

The burial was scheduled for 10AM on Monday.

During the funeral on Monday morning in Ede, Osun state, supporters of the late senator collapsed the canopy where Governors Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun), Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), and Olagunsoye Oyinlola, and younger brother of the deceased Deji Adeleke during Adeleke’s burial ceremony.

PUNCH reported that they carried out the action to chase out Idiat Babalola, a commissioner nominee of Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State.

The youths alleged that Adeleke was poisoned by some All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders.

The youths claimed that Babalola was being touted to become the running mate of APC’s gubernatorial candidate in Osun state in 2018.

Adeleke was in the race to become governor of Osun state in 2014 under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Problem started when Babalola was sighted by the mourners who demanded that she should be sent out. Despite pleas from family members of the deceased, the youths insisted and started shouting and raining curses on her.

After destroying the canopy, Amosun and his security aides escorted Babalola outside the house as the youths threw sticks and mango fruits at her.

PUNCH reports that Adeleke was later interred at his residence in Ede, Osun state.

    These people are so silly and barbaric though.
    They claim to be his supporter yet they can’t let him rest in peace?
    Wicked country and wicked citizens.
    I watched the video on Channels TV. It was such a scary and disturbing scene.
