The sad death of the late Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, has not just thrown the entire nation into mourning but it has also stirred numerous questions, particularly with regard to the cause of his death.


Akeredolu died on Wednesday.


But as questions continue to spring up from users of different social networks, Omoleye Sowore has accused the family of the late Governor of hastening his death.

Sowore was the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2023 general election.


Meanwhile. the Ondo State Government in a statement released through the state information and Orientation commissioner, Bamidele Ademola-Olateju, revealed that Akeredolu died of prostate cancer.


According to Ademola-Olateju, Governor Akeredolu died while receiving medical treatment in Germany after complications arising from protracted prostate cancer.

But Sowore, while speaking during an interview on News Central TV, pointed fingers of blame at Akeredolu’s wife and family members.

To him, they were trying to use him to milk the state.

This continued even when Akeredolu requested he should be taken to his hometown.


According to him, he wanted to rest amid his receding health condition as at that time.

Hastened Death

The AAC chieftain revealed that Akeredolu’s wife, brothers and family members flew the governor back to Nigeria from Germany against the late governor’s wish.


Their aim was just to use Rotimi Akeredolu presence to remove the deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa from office.

Meanwhile, Aiyedatiwa is now the governor.

Furthermore, Sowore said: “In saner climes, those behind Akeredolu’s death will be prosecuted.

“You can’t hasten the death of somebody and get away with it.”
