Governors of Ogun and Ondo States, Ibikunle Amosun and Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN) were among the dignitaries present at the burial.

Meanwhile, there was a very tensed moment as the burial rites commenced as angry sympathisers descended on another indigene of Ede, Hon Idiat Babalola.

The crowd of sympathisers became restive when Babalola came in for the Islamic prayers ahead of the internment of the two-time Senator and first elected governor of Osun State.

Angry sympathisers demanded that Babalola be made to leave the premises.

When pleas from dignitaries at the event, including Ondo State Governor, Mr.Rotimi Akeredolu, failed to persuade the angry crowd, Governor Amosun had to join some other dignitaries in personally shielding the lady and leading her out of the premises.
After that, the Ogun State governor joined other Muslim faithful to observe the final prayers before the Internment of late Senator Adeleke.
Senator Adeleke died on Sunday and was buried on Monday morning according to Islamic rites.
