The Osun State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has suspended political activities for the week following the death of Ifeanyi Adeleke, the son of the Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido.

According to the party, the decision was to commiserate with Deji Adeleke, Davido’s father and all other members of the Adeleke family, whom have been thrown into mourning over the loss of the three year old boy.

State Caretaker Chairman of the party, Adekunle Akindele, in a condolence message to the Adeleke family, directed all party organs and committees to suspend activities in commiseration with the family, describing the incident as “a very sad occurrence”.

“We mourn the sorrowful exit of our son, Ifeanyi. 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 condolence goes 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,” the statement concluded.

Ifeanyi was said to have been drowned inside his father’s swimming pool in Lagos on Monday night.
