Mr Alfred Aderibigbe, the nurse who treated Sen. 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.
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.
“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
