Mr. Alfred Aderibigbe, a graduate of the school of hygiene technology turned Health Assistant that treated the Senator two hours before he succumbed to the cold hands of death has made useful confession which was contained in the statement he made to the police 1regarding the nature of the injection he administered on the senator shortly before he gave up the ghost, highly impeccable family sources told our reporter.
Alfred, who is a long standing caregiver to the late Adeleke for over 10 years disclosed that the lawmaker had both peripheral artery disease and deep vein thrombosis because, according to him, the senator was hypertensive and diabetic at the same time.
“He suffers serious pain on his left leg. As such he uses a USA imported drug called ‘Pentoxifyline’ frequently. And when it escalates, he uses this medication with other analgesics intravenously or orally”.
Mr. Alfred further disclosed, “but, because of his schedule in Ede, he forgot the drug in his Ikeja home in Lagos. Before he left home in the morning for the Saturday’s engagement, he complained of light pain on the leg which was not given the attention it deserved”, the health assistant narrated.
He continued, “oral tablets of 200mg Diclofenac, 30mg of Pentazocine injection, 60mg of Diazepam tablets, 200mg of Hydrocortisone and 500mg of Analgin inside Dextrose Saline were given to him”.
Another source who confided in Mega Icon Magazine revealed that the late Osun political idol, Sen. Adeleke, attended a burial ceremony in Kuta, two political meetings and another party before he retired home on Saturday. He was said to have had series of meetings till 2am, but was complaining of the pains in the leg to close associates all through the meetings.
The source further disclosed that by 5am, he sent for Alfred Aderibigbe who stay five houses away from the Senator Adeleke’s residence. According to this source, “he saw that he had missed 18 calls from the senator’s mobile number who upon reaching him asked him to come with pain relieving tablets or injection as he couldn’t lift his legs again.
