The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun, on Tuesday, announced the suspension of its political activities following the death of Ifeanyi, son of David Adeleke (Davido), nephew of Governor-elect Ademola Adeleke.
The party’s caretaker chairman in the state, Adekunle Akindele, who stated this in a condolence message in Osogbo, directed all party organs and committees to suspend activities in commiseration with the family.
He described the incident as “a very sad occurrence.”
“We pray for the repose of his soul. It is a sad day, but we remain steadfast in our faith in the Lord of the Universe.
“Our condolences go to Davido, our youth ambassador. We commiserate with our father figure, Dr Deji Adeleke and the entire Adeleke family. We pray the good Lord grant the family the strength to bear this irreparable loss,” he said.
Master Ifeanyi was said to have drowned in a swimming pool at the singer’s residence in the Banana Island area of Lagos on Monday.
The police command in Lagos said eight domestic staff of the singer had been brought in for questioning over the tragic incident.
The command’s spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed this on Tuesday.
