The siblings of the deceased, Dr. Deji Adeleke; Mrs. Dupe Adeleke-Sani and Dele shunned the panel headed by a Chief Magistrate, Olusegun Ayilara, despite the summons issued to them.
The Commissioner of Police in Osun State, Fimihan Adeoye; Executive Director of Biket Hospital, Dr. Adebisi Adenle, Executive Secretary, Ede South Local Government, Johnson Ojo, were present at the sitting based on the summons issued by the coroner.
The coroner said the panel invited the family of the deceased but they did not turn up.
He stated that they would issue another summon to make sure they were present during the sittings.
The coroner said that the panel would not be able to take evidence because of logistic reasons and adjourned the case till May 15.
Adeleke, who was the first civilian governor of Osun State died at Biket Hospital in Osogbo on April 23.
His family suspects foul play. They asked that an autopsy be conducted at the LAUTECH Teaching Hospital, Osogbo.
