A forensic expert has told the coroner inquest probing the death of Isiaka Adeleke, senator who represented Osun west in the 8th assembly, that the nurse who treated the deceased lied about the quantity of drugs given to him.

Alfred Aderibigbe, chief nursing officer at comprehensive health centre, Edunabon in Osun, had denied giving Adeleke drug overdose.

But toxicology report on the pathological examination carried out on the deceased by Benedict Agbu, a police forensic expert, revealed that Adeleke was given overdose of drugs.

The report also showed that Aderibigbe administered the lawmaker before his death.

The report which was admitted in exhibit at the coroner disclosed that Metamyzole, Diazepam, Pentazocine, and Analgin were administered on Adeleke intravenously against Aderibigbe’s claim.

Analyses of the findings in the blood and urine samples taken from Adeleke’s corpse, as contained in the toxicology report proved negative result for the presence of chlorinated hydrocarbon herbicides, organo-paosforous pesticide, rodenticides, metallic poison, cynide and tri-cylic anti depressants.

The report which was read at the coroner by a superintendent of police, read in part, “The digested food particles were found in the gastric content but no drug particle was found in the exhibit.”

Meanwhile, a lawyer who was observing the proceeding, Basiru Ajibola, urged the coroner to call back Aderibigbe for clarifications on his evidence which contradicts the toxicology report.

But Olusegun Ayilara, the coroner,  said there was no need to call Aderibigbe back because the coroner would work on the reports and evidence admitted so far.

Ayilara also he called on members of the public to submit memorandum on the matter.

‎The coroner also heard that the Adeleke family did not order for the autopsy carried out on the deceased.
