Tensions ran high at the burial of Senator Isiaka Adeleke today as angry supporters of Adeleke collapsed a canopy on Amosun, Akeredolu, Oyinlola to chase out Idiat Babalola.
Babalola, who is a commissioner nominee of Governor Rauf Aregbesola, was seated among the dignitaries including the younger brother of the deceased, Deji Adeleke before she was chased out by the youths.
The irate youths alleged that the former governor was poisoned by some APC leaders and that Babalola was being touted to become the running mate of the anointed candidate of the APC.
Problem started when Babalola was sighted by the mourners who demanded that she should be sent out.
Despite pleas from family members of the deceased , the youths insisted and started shouting and raining curses on her.
The youths started shaking the 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 mangoe fruits at her.
