Angry supporters of Senator Isiaka Adeleke collapsed a canopy on some big dignitaries at the burial programme for the former governor. Some of the guests include governors Ibikunle Amosun of Oyo state, Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo, former Osun state governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola in order to chase out Idiat Babalola, who is a commissioner nominee of Governor Rauf Aregbesola.

Babalola who was seated among the dignitaries including the younger brother of the deceased, Deji Adeleke, was chased out by the youths who alleged that the former governor was poisoned by some APC leaders as a result of the 2018 governorship election.

The irate youths said Babalola was being touted to become the running mate of the anointed candidate of the APC. She is also from Ede.

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.

The youths started shaking the canopy where Governors Ibikunle Amosun, Rotimi Akeredolu, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola and Deji Adeleke were seated to chase out Babalola who they described as a betrayer.

Babalola was escorted outside the house by Amosun and his security aides as the youths threw sticks and mango fruit at her. Governor Ayodele Fayose also attended the burial.

Hip hop star, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has revealed that he is “heartbroken” over the death of his uncle, Senator Isiaka Adeleke.

The Senator passed away on Sunday morning at Biket Hospital in Osogbo, the state capital, after reportedly suffering from heart attack.


Davido, who has been quiet since his uncle died, took to Instagram on Monday morning to express sadness over the incident.

“Heartbroken. Rest In Peace My dear uncle…. SHERUBAWON,” the singer wrote.

The deceased is the brother of Davido’s father, Adedeji Adeleke.

Senator Adeleke, who had been a member of the National Assembly since 2007, was planning to run for the governorship election in Osun state in 2018.

Popular singer, David Adeleke, otherwise known as Davido, has removed Osogbo, Osun state from his 8-city Back To Basics 2017 Tour.

According to him, Osun state will never be the same after his late uncle’s death, Senator Isiaka Adeleke.

The ‘IF’ hit singer about a week announced via social media of his nationwide tour that was to cover 8 cities namely Lagos, Ibadan, Osogbo, Benin, Abuja, Enugu, Port Harcourt and Ilorin.

However, it seems events surrounding his late uncle’s death seems to have affected the decision.

Davido wrote on his snapchat page @DAVIDO: “Osun will never be the same again. Smh. Cancelling Osun from my tour, I can’t do it.”
