I never gave Adeleke drug overdose, I

Mr Alfred Aderibigbe, the nurse who treated Senator 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.

Aderibigbe, while giving evidence before the coroner, Chief Magistrate Olusegun Ayilara, 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.

“The drugs which the senator kept with me that were to be administered on him were Analgin injection, Diazepam injection, photroine injection and hydrocortisone.

“But the senator said I should not give him hydrocortisone because when he took it in Lagos, he had headache and was also vomiting.

“So the other drugs was what I gave him and they were in the right dosage.

“ Even when the prescription said he should be given 20mg of diazepam, I had to limit it to 10mg because I discovered he had taken some oral pain painkillers.

“The two other injections I gave him were in the right proportion too– 50mg of Analgin and 1mg of photroine.

“ I waited for him to sleep and finish the drip/water I had already placed him on before I took my leave around 7:30 am.

“The reason I took my leave was to inform my church because the day was a Sunday and I would not be able to teach the Sunday class. I returned back to the Adeleke residence by 9:30 am.

“Before I left, I had told the senator’s friend, who was with me throughout the treatment, to watch over him.

“When I returned, I found the senator in the sleeping position I left him, and on closer observation, his heart rate had dropped and his pulse was faint.

“I quickly gave him a cardiac massage and called on his friend, Dipo, to assist me and when the situation was beyond my control, I raised an alarm and he was quickly rushed to Biket hospital.

“By the time we got him to Biket hospital, the CMD, Dr Adebisi Adenle, examined his body and pronounced him “Brought in Dead.”

He asked his friend what happen and he was told that the deceased complained of knee joint pain (gout) and that I gave him some treatment.

“The doctor now asked me what drugs I administered on the deceased and I told him. He then said it was the normal drug treatment for gout.

“But as the empty containers and the previous drugs the deceased had taken were brought to the hospital on the doctor’s request, lies broke out that he died of an overdose.

“The lies were generated by the crowd that had gathered at the hospital because Sen. Adeleke’s campaign bus and his Escalade were used to convey him to the hospital.

“As they drove against traffic, people got the hint that he was in trouble and gathered to find out more.

Aderibigbe said after the incident, he was arrested by the police and detained till May 2 before he was granted bail.

He said since he was granted bail, he had not returned to work or his house in Ede, having been placed under protective custody.

Ayilara lamented that he had now been accused of killing Adeleke while his wife and children had fled from the family home.

In earlier testimonies before the coroner, the Chief Medical Director of Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, Prof. Akeem Lasisi, said Adeleke died of drug overdose.

The Consultant Pathologist, who carried out the autopsy on Adeleke’s corpse, Dr Taiwo Sholaja, also claimed that he died of drug overdose.

The coroner’s sitting was later adjourned till Friday. NAN

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but
    it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help prevent content
    from being ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    I precisely desired to say thanks again. I’m not certain the things I could possibly have created in the absence of the actual creative ideas discussed by you concerning my question. It seemed to be a very frustrating issue in my opinion, however , observing the very specialised strategy you processed that made me to leap over gladness. I am just happy for this information and in addition pray you know what a great job you happen to be getting into teaching people thru your web page. More than likely you have never got to know any of us.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something unique. P.S Sorry for being
    off-topic but I had to ask!
