A couple of days ago [Apr. 23] Senator Isiaka Adeleke, the first governor of Osun State and uncle of Davido, died suddenly yesterday in Oshogbo, the Osun State capital. He is reported to have had a heart attack due to an overdose of intravenous painkillers administered to him by an unqualified medical technician.
