A mob of supporters of late Senator Isiaka Adeleke have reportedly stormed his ongoing burial to chase out Idiat Babalola, a protégé of Rauf Aregbesola, Osun State Governor. Babalola, who was seated among the dignitaries at the event, was sent away by the youths who alleged that the deceased was poisoned by some APC leaders. Problem started when Babalola was sighted by the mourners who demanded that she should be sent out. The irate youths said Babalola was being touted to become the running mate of the anointed candidate of the APC. Despite pleas from family members of the deceased, the youths insisted and started raining curses on her. The youths were said to have started shaking the erected canopy where Governors Ibikunle Amosun, Rotimi Akeredolu, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola and Deji Adeleke were seated to chase out Babalola, who they described as a betrayer. Babalola was escorted outside the house by Amosun and his security aides as the youths threw sticks and mango fruits at her.
