“He Was Killed” – Sowore Speaks On Circumstances Surrounding Akeredolu’s Death [VIDEO]


Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2023 general election, has alleged that the late Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, had a hand in his death.

Sowore made the allegations in an interview on News Central TV. He blamed Akeredolu’s wife and family members for the demise of Akeredolu.

The presidential candidate further stated that they were trying to use him to milk the state even when Akeredolu requested he should be taken to his hometown so he could rest amid his receding health condition as at that time.

Sowore alleged an instance where Akeredolu’s wife, brothers and family members flew the governor back to Nigeria from Germany against the latter’s wish, so as to use his presence to remove Lucky Aiyedatiwa from office.

He 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.”


Akeredolu died on Wednesday. The Ondo State Government, in a statement released through the state information and Orientation commissioner, Bamidele Ademola-Olateju, said 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.
