The coroner inquest into the death of the Late Senator Isiaka Adeleke sitting in Osogbo was on Friday told that the Nurse who treated the former Governor of Osun wasn’t truthful about the quantity of drugs and how it was administered on the deceased before his death.
The Coroner also heard that the Adeleke family did not order for the autopsy carried out on the deceased. Dr. Taiwo Olufemi Solaja who examined the deceased for autopsy, said he only acted on the orders of Coroner Dorcas Ajiboye.
Aderibigbe, who claimed to be a Chief Nursing Officer at Comprehensive Health Centre, Edunabon, Osun State, had during his evidence before the Coroner Inquest set up by the Osun State Government to probe Adeleke’s death yesterday (Thursday) denied administering Gentamicine on the senator while treating him for gout.
The Nurse said he diluted Hydrocortisone in fluid and gave Metamyzole, Diazepam, Pentazocine and Analgin intramuscular to the deceased.
Police toxicology report on the pathological examination carried out on the deceased by Mr. Benedict Agbu, a police forensic expert, revealed that Adeleke was administered with Gentamicine 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.
