Cause of Senator’s death not known – Deji Adeleke

Deji Adeleke, the younger brother to the first civilian Governor of Osun State, Senator Isiaka Adeleke, has said the cause of the senator’s death is yet to be known.



He said this on Wednesday at a press conference at the residence of the deceased.

The pro-chancellor of Adeleke University said that the family was told that the report of the autopsy would take between one to two weeks.

He, however, urged people to disregard claims in the social media that the senator was killed.

He advised Senator Adeleke’s supporters to be calm, saying the two-time Senator was not known for violence while he was alive.

Tunji, one of the children of the Senator has alleged that his father, who was preparing to contest in the 2018 governorship election in the state was killed.

Although he did not state how he was killed, he said Adeleke, who was also the senator representing Osun-West at the Senate until his death, was killed by some forces because he stood a good chance of emerging the governor of the state again.

Tunji, who said this in a snapchat on Tuesday, said that some persons, who he did not name, eliminated his dad because they considered him a big threat to their ambition ahead of the next year election.

Nigeria to release whistleblower policy on illegal weapons

The federal government is set to release policy to prevent and eradicate illegal ownership of small arms and light weapons,, the presidency has disclosed.



The Senior Special Assistant on ‎Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement‎ said the rules of a whistleblower mechanism to throw a spotlight on the regime of gun ownership and control in the country were being drawn up.‎

Shehu said ‎in line with presidential directives, the National Security Adviser, Maj-Gen. Babagana Munguno (rtd) has began work on a template for the discovery and recovery of illegal weapons through a reward system following the success of the whistleblower policy under the Ministry of Finance.‎

”In the last few days, we had discussed the efforts the administration is making to strengthen the whistleblower mechanism in the Ministry of Finance which, to date has proved to be very effective in bringing the attention of the government to stolen assets and unexplained wealth.

“The ONSA Initiative may be an independent line of inquiry or in active collaboration with what the government is doing in Finance. This will be a sort of searchlight on weapons ownership in the country. Whatever form or shape it takes, the administration wants to take a tough line to curtail the large number of illegal weapons in circulation used in intra and inter-communal conflicts. The aim is to disarm communities especially those with proclivity to violence.”

Shehu disclosed that the ONSA already has a committee on the recovery of small arms and light weapons in the country has decided to adopt the whistleblower approach so as to eradicate mass shooting incidents and remove the harassment of law abiding citizens by holders of illegal weapons.
