An Osun State High Court sitting in Ede has ordered that Mr. Alfred Aderibigbe, the nurse, who administered drugs which allegedly killed Senator Isiaka Adeleke be remanded in prison custody.

According to a statement on Sunday by the Press Officer, Osun State Ministry of Justice, Mr. Opeyemi Bello, Aderibigbe, who was arraigned on murder before Justice Ayo Oyebiyi on Friday pleaded not guilty to the charge preferred against him. Counsel to the accused person, Mr. Soji Oyetayo, prayed the court to grant the nurse bail. He told the court that there was an application filed and submitted to the court for his client’s bail.

The Acting Solicitor General and Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Justice, Mr. Dapo Adeniji, who led the legal team from the ministry opposed the bail application. Adeniji argued that the accused was just arraigned for the first time in the court and the bail application was filed before the arraignment. He said that bail application was premature because the accused was not in custody when the bail application was filed.

The presiding judge in his ruling ordered that the accused should be remanded at the Ilesa prison till June 29, 2018, when the case would come up for hearing.

Adeleke, a serving senator died on April 23, 2017, after he was treated by the nurse and his death sparked a riot with insinuation from his supporters that he was poisoned because if his governorship ambition. The Consultant Pathologist, at LAUTH, who carried out the autopsy on Adeleke’s corpse, Dr. Taiwo Sholaja, also told the coroner that Adeleke died of drug overdose and not poison.
