The supporters, who went on rampage at Adeleke’s house in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, vented their anger on newsmen who came to cover the developing story.
One of the reporters, Tope Alabi of the Nigeria Television Authority, was beaten to stupor, with the station’s camera damaged and seized.
Until he died, there was no reported misunderstanding between Adeleke and Aregbesola.
Though there have been reports that Aregbesola may head to the Senate after completing his tenure as governor next year, he is not from the same senatorial district with Adeleke.
Aregbesola is from Osun East Senatorial District, while Adeleke is from Osun West Senatorial District.
