Senator Isiaka Adeleke

Senator representing Osun West District, Isiaka Adeleke has died.

He died on Sunday morning at Biket Hospital, Osogbo, Osun State.

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.

He is an uncle to music star Davido.

He will be buried in Ede today.

      Doris Uboh – formerly of the House of Reps.

      I remember he had a very beautiful wife called Farida when he was a Governor.

    I just had to do this … RIP

    To Davido…

    I hope you can take a lesson home , you are not too young ,neither are you invisible … This is how we all end .

    Your uncle was at a party last night , happy and dancing, he would have had security personnel beat up anyone who mentioned to him that he would not live to see the next evening.

    Vanity upon vanity…

    In the end , treat people right , leave a good legacy behind … There are billions of people on earth God could have chosen anyone of them but he chose you ,not so you can walk on them ….Think young man and anyone who has ears including myself

      Ti a ba ja….bi ti ka ku kor!

      Do you know if his dad dies, he gets cash from his dad’s will and estate. I don’t think that will ‘humble’ him in the way you want so another bad news for you cus he will be more in your face.

Next time add your “inspector humble police certificate ” to your vile comment!!! I would have said more to you but today is Sunday !!!!!

      The Bible is always right: the heart of man is desperately wicked….
      I’m not a fan of davido, but mehn your statement is ugly!

      Never, never, never, never wish anyone dead! Death and life are in the hands of the Almighty God and we all are mortals who will all die. Please purge your heart from all wickedness, yes the boy Davido might be stepping on toes the best you can do is to pray for him and leave him to the Almighty God who is the ultimate judge but it is very wicked of you to pray for his dad to die so that he will change for the better, how do you know if his dad’s death will even plunge him deeper into destruction? Please pray for others as you would pray for yourself and remember you too make a lot of mistakes so pray for yourself too!

      “Use you to get likes.”
      Just when I thought you couldn’t be more stupid.
      You had to comment again with a more stupid comeback line.

      Plot twist: Just imagine Dr Adeleke is a “madarikan”, and your wish falls on you instead.

    Not to say bad things about the dead our politicians have to learn, Our hospitals are death traps. we don’t have a good cardiac centre in Nigeria. Not all ailments will allow you to go for check up. May his soul rest in peace but he died due to his sins of time past

    You are a wicked person- you wish someone’s father dead- anh anh! Why because you want him to be humble – so it s fathers death that will make him humble- you can’t pray for him to change – aye ma buru o! You don’t even know how many lives Davido’s father as touched- scholarships he has given out – you need a change of heart – wishing someone dead is a sin – I’m so upset – anh anh

    Is Davido a killer or a robber- but you want his father dead- hope you know s mum is dead – so anybody that is humble should die- now I know people are wicked – Bellanaija please don’t post such comments – because this person might just be a killer- if you can think it – you can do it.sheeeeew!

    How can you wish death upon someone ? do you know him personally? you only know of him of how the media portrays him. Only GOD knows how you will behave if you have the same amount of money. Why are people so wicked like this then you don’t understand why are still in the same position it is not right what you just said.

    I had to read Wunmi’s comment a few times to be certain what was written. Wunmi actually did not wish Da.vido’s father dead. In as much as this comment should not be made at such a sensitive time, there was no wishing the death of the young man’s dad. It honestly looks like he/she was trying to let Davido know that all that arrogance doesn’t mean squat at the end of days.
