How Davido’s late Uncle saved his father’s life-Source

By FRANCIS OGBONNA
A source close to the Adeleke’s have said asides the bond that exists between both brothers, which should make Davido’s father, Chief Adedeji Adeleke miss his late politician Uncle, Senator Isiaka Adeleke, the Chancellor and owner of Adeleke University, Ede, Osun state, misses him the most because he had saved his life.

Narrating the incidence, the source told My Backyard Story that a close relative had served dinner once to the “Baba Olowo” as fondly referred to by his son, Davido, but little did Chief Adeleke know that it had been poisoned.

“So just before Oga could eat the meal, his brother (Senator Isiaka) called at about 8pm from Osun and told him not to eat the meal and that he was coming. So he (Baba Olowo) left the meal covered,” our source said.

He added: “When Alhaji arrived in the morning and the plate that had the dinner was opened, the meal was covered with ants and that is a rear site in the Adeleke residents because fumigation is done regularly.

In a bid to authenticate his story, our source noted: “I am not telling you story, it was Chief (Adeleke) himself who told us at the party he organised to reconcile his family, after the divorce of his wife was done. And while he shared with us at the private party he (chief Adeleke) sobbed profusely.”
