AS the dust of controversies that ensued as a result of the sudden death of the first civilian governor of Osun State, Senator Isiaka Adeleke representing Osun West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, is yet to settle down, fresh facts have emerged as to what actually led to the demise of the Ede-born politician, Mega Icon Magazine exclusively gathered.

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.

According to the information made available to our reporter and which had been confirmed to be true, Alfred is an health worker in one of the Primary Health Centres in Ede, Osun state.

The source further added that being a socialite, the Senator drank few glass cups of strong liquor on Saturday night.

The source also hinted that the health assistant left after the last drop of the dextrose saline had been administered on him after which the pain was subsided but it was not long after when the lawmaker’s breathing suddenly changed around 6:50am.

“He was struggling to inhale or exhale oxygen. There after he was rushed to Bikets Hospital, Osogbo but the hospital declared him brought in dead (BID)”, he concluded.

However, Mega Icon Magazine reliably learnt that upon learning the critical condition which Senator Adeleke was, Mrs Modupe Sanni nee Adeleke, the third child of the family, who equally is a nurse, had sent for Mr. Alfred and demanded to see the drug he administered on his brother, afterwhich she immediately alerted the police to arrest Alfred, not knowing that her brother, Sen. Adeleke, had given up the ghost.

“Mrs Sanni was the first person to hand over Alfred to the police before other family members started probing the Senator Adeleke’s death, the source revealed.

‘Take pre-emptive steps to secure Oyo State’, Akande advises Makinde



Oyo state governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, has been urged to take immediate and decisive measures to secure lives and property in the state.

Professor Adeolu Akande, the Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, made the plea on Monday, in the wake of the security measures announced by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State.

The Ondo State Government had on Monday given a 7-day ultimatum to illegal occupants of forest reserves in the state to vacate their hideout. The government also announced many other stringent steps to secure the state from incorrigible elements.

Professor Akande noted the extreme measures would make Ondo State uncomfortable for the criminals, who would seek a new haven and continue to wreak havoc.

“It is logical to expect that the displacement of these criminal elements from Ondo State will lead them to migrate to comfortable zones to continue their nefarious activities. This is the risk Oyo State faces if it fails to take stern measures to keep such elements away from the state.

“We should not be unmindful of claims by the Chairman of the  Amotekun corps in Oyo State that the forest reserves in the Oke Ogun area have become a haven for criminals from neighbouring countries.

“It is therefore of great urgency that Governor Makinde announces measures to ensure that Oyo State does not become a natural comfort zone for criminal elements expelled from neighbouring states.

The APC Chieftain further noted that the rising crime wave in the state and across the country calls for collective action from all citizens.

“This is no time to trade culpability. The state is facing a serious security challenge, and all of us must join hands with the governor to salvage the situation. Criminals do not distinguish between political parties when they commit a crime. They do not choose their victims according to their political affiliation. All hands must be on deck to return our dear state to a secure and peaceful one”, the NCC boss submitted.

NDDC: Akpabio threatens legal action over fake news of $5m bribe to Malami to secure sole administrator



Senator Godswill Akpabio, the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, has denied the news making the rounds in some media outfits that he offered a bribe of $5 million to the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General, Abubakar Malami, to secure the appointment of a sole administrator for the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

Also, the former governor of Akwa Ibom State has threatened legal action against the purveyors of the news inorder to clear his name and that of the Attorney General from the malicious publication.

The position of the Minister was contained in a statement signed by his media aide, Anietie Ekong, and made available to newsmen.

The statement read, “the attention of the Honourable Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio has been drawn to a piece of fake news which claimed that Senator Akpabio paid $5 million bribe to the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami and others to secure the appointment of a Sole Administrator for the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

“We wish to state categorically that  this is a piece of malicious concoction manufactured from the pit of hell by mischief -makers. It is a figment of the imagination of the author of the fake news. Senator Akpabio denies the story in its entirety. The authors of the fake news should be ready to back up their claim or face the full wrath of the law.

“The story is a desperate attempt by some unscrupulous bloggers to impugn the integrity of the Honourable Minister of Niger Delta Affairs and the Honourable Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami as the claim is not only spurious but utterly ridiculous.

“The fact is that in a suit number ABJ/CS/617/2020 filed by a Civil Society Organization, Forum for Accountability and Good Governance, at a Federal High Court in Abuja, Justice Ahmed Mohammed had granted an order restraining the Interim Management Committee of the NDDC from performing the functions of the board and accessing the Commission’s offices and files.

“The Order clearly listed the Managing Director Professor Kemebradikumo Pondei, Acting Executive Director of Projects Dr Cairo Ojougboh, Mrs Caroline Nagboh and Cecilia Akintomide as those restrained. The Order also asked that “the most senior civil servant or administrator in the Commission be appointed” to take charge of the Commission.

“It was based on this order that President Muhammadu Buhari approved the elevation of the Acting Executive Director of Finance and Administration, Mr Effiong Akwa, being the most Senior Administrator to take over the headship of the NDDC as an Interim Administrator pending the completion of the Forensic Audit Exercise.

“It is therefore absurd for anyone to even imagine that the Honourable Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio would bribe the Attorney General before an Order of the Court is complied with as the purveyors of the fake news have stated. The general public should discountenance this piece of trash.

‘It is obvious that some  persons who are scared of the ongoing forensic audit of the NDDC as ordered by President Muhammadu Buhari are working tirelessly to scuttle the exercise by blackmailing the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio.  Their modus operandi is to churn out fake news in a bid to stop Senator Akpabio from sanitizing the NDDC. Otherwise, how can a responsible news website make such a grievous allegation without any shred of evidence to back up its claim.

“However, we wish to state that no amount of sponsored fake news and blackmail would deter Senator Akpabio from doing the right thing as directed by Mr. President. The Minister has the overwhelming support of the impoverished masses of the Niger Delta who have borne the brunt of underdevelopment of the region over the years”, it concluded.
