The family of Senator Isiaka Adeleke has rejected the inquest into his death by Osun State governor, Rauf Aregbesola.
Deji Adeleke, immediate younger brother of the deceased read the family’s address at a press briefing in his residence in Ede on Sunday.
He said the outcome of the inquest had been predetermined.
Deji Adeleke said, ” The family hereby denounces in its entirety the ill advised and self serving coroner’s inquest ordered by the Osun State Government purportedly set up to determine the cause of death of our dearly beloved Senator Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke.
“We condemn in strictest terms the continuous politicization attempts by the state of this great loss to our family, particularly the ordering of this inquest at a time we are still coming to terms with the harsh reality of his sudden departure and the pain and grief therefrom.
“We have been reliably informed by credible sources that the outcome of the kangaroo inquest is already predetermined by the state and designed to serve its own interest with distorted facts and misinformation which will clearly not be in the interest of the good people of Osun in general and the Adeleke family in particular.”
Adeleke has been said to have died under suspicious circumstances.
