New evidence has emerged in the ongoing inquest into the circumstances surrounding the death of the Late Senator Isiaka Adeleke.

According to the testimony given today by the pathologist who carried the autopsy on the body, Dr. Taiwo Solaja, the toxicology report showed no traces of poison and metal in the system of the late senator.

The Pathologist however pointed to the fact that autopsy report showed that there was a high level of alcohol, sedatives and analgesics in the blood of the deceased.

Dr. Solaja submitted by saying that the autopsy findings showed conclusively that Sen. Adeleke had died of aspiration with multiple drug overdose.
