Tunji, one of the children of the late former governor of Osun State, Senator Isiaka Adeleke believes his father did not die naturally.

Tunji, who is still in shock, claims that his father's death was politically motivated.

He said his father, who was also the senator representing Osun-West was killed by some forces because he stood a good chance of returning as governor.

Tunji, who said this in a snapchat on Tuesday, also claims that some persons, who he did not name, eliminated his dad because they considered him a big threat to their ambitions.

He said it was not a coincidence that his father, who was hale and hearty on Saturday and was awake till around 2am on Sunday morning, could die a few hours later without showing any sign of sickness.

Tunji believes that his dad was killed by those who were jealous of his influence and popularity.

His claim was not different from the position of many of Adeleke’s supporters, who said that their benefactor was poisoned at one of the social functions he attended within the state on Saturday April 22.
