The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has expressed shock over the sudden death of Senator Isiaka Adeleke.
Oba Ogunwusi, who said this in a statement issued on Sunday also mourned the deaths of Dipo Famakinwa and veteran actor, Olumide Bakare.
A former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has lamented the death of Adeleke, saying it was shocking.
A statement by Tinubu’s spokesperson, Tunde Rahman, described the late Adeleke as a major leader of the APC.
The statement said, “I received the news of Senator Isiaka Adeleke’s death with numbing shock. It was too much to bear coming barely a day after that of Dipo Famakinwa. The news of his death was both sudden and saddening for me and I am sure for most members of our political family.
“Senator Adeleke was a grassroots politician with a rich political background. He was hugely popular in his Osun State, particularly in the three local governments in Ede, his hometown. He was a major leader of our party, the APC. His leadership and good counsel were still very much required when death came.”
