Adeleke Family Threatens To Sue LAUTECH CMD Over “Compromised” Autopsy Report
Late Senator Adeleke
The family of late Senator Isiaka Adeleke, has alleged that the Chief Medical Director of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Teaching Hospital, Osogbo , Prof. Akeem Lasisi and other medical practitioners compromised and unprofessionally handled the autopsy ordered by the family into the Senator’s death.
The family led by Mr. Adedeji Adeleke, said this at a press conference in Ede on Wednesday as they responded to the testimony of the CMD, who appeared before the coroner, Mr. Olusegun Ayilara.
Mr. Adeleke stated that his family neither participated nor believed in the kangaroo inquest ordered by Governor Rauf Aregbsola, revealing that the CMD has refused to give the family the result of the autopsy carried out on the deceased.
The family head said, ” It is quite disheartening, that we live in a country where some of our supposed professionals can be so easily compromised by their paymasters without any regard to the oath they swore to as medical health practitioners. The family has also noted with interest the contradictory testimonies at the Coroner’s Inquest as to whether Senator Isiaka Adeleke had anything to eat at the last party he attended that was hosted by an Osun State APC chieftain.
“The Adeleke family hereby puts it on record, that based on the high level of unprofessional conduct already displayed by the CMD of LAUTECH, the integrity of the ‘Yet to be ready’ autopsy must have been seriously compromised.
” The Adeleke family is consulting layers and is considering all legal options available to address this unfortunate and unprofessional conduct exhibited by the medical practitioners in this matter.”
Sen. Adeleke had died on 23 April 2017, aged 62, at Bikets Hospital in Oshogbo the Osun state capital after reportedly suffering a heart attack
