Adedeji Adeleke, father of popular Nigerian hip-hop artist, David Adeleke aka Davido, has donated 700 hundred mattresses and pillows to the Ilesha prison, Osun state, for use by the prison inmates.
Adeleke, during the visit was accompanied by prominent Osun politicians including former speaker of Osun State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Adejare Bello. Dr. Adeleke was on a visit to Alhaji Fatai Diekola and five others who were arrested on the orders of the state governor, Rauf Aregbesola in connection with the recent bye-election in Osun West Senatorial District, which saw the defeat of the ruling APC.
During the visit, he, however, came across over 200 inmates whose offences are sundry and had been serving jail terms due to their inability to pay optional fines as ruled by competent Courts of Law, sympathetic to their conditions, the Philanthropist paid the fines on their behalf to secure their release and admonished them to be of good behaviour henceforth.
Meanwhile, efforts are in top gear to secure the release of the detained politicians.
