I Didn’t Give Late Adeleke Drug Overdose,Says Nurse

Mr Alfred Aderibigbe, the nurse who treated Sen. Isiaka Adeleke before he died, on Thursday in Osogbo  told a  coroner inquest that he never administered  a  drug  overdose on the  late politician as was reported.

While giving  evidence before the coroner, Chief Magistrate Olusegun Ayilara, Aderibigbe said all the drugs he administered on the late first civilian governor of Osun  were in  normal dosage.

He also told the coroner that he had been treating the  late senator in the last  15 years, adding that the drugs  he administered on Adeleke  the day he died were those the late politician gave to him.

Aderibigbe  said:

“The senator gave me his drugs  which he brought from Lagos  to keep  on the evening of Monday, April 17,  with the understanding that when he wants to take them,  he will call me to bring  them.

“On Sunday, April 23, at about 4 am, I was, however,  woken up by two men from the senator who banged on my gate and later informed me that the senator had been  calling my phone and that  I was not picking my calls.
“They said the senator needed me to come and treat him and that I should bring his drugs along.
“ I later went inside to get them and also found the  calls I missed on my phone.
“I called the senator but his friend, one Dipo Fagborode,  picked his call.
“ As he was explaining what was going on, the senator himself collected the phone and asked  me to come quickly  that he was having serious knee  pains.
“When I got to the senator’s house, he asked  for his drugs and gave me his prescription which contained the dose I was to administer on him
