Aderibigbe who is a Chief Nursing Officer at Comprehensive Health Centre, Edunabon, Osun State, had during his evidence before the coroner set up by the Osun state government to probe Adeleke’s death in his evidence on Thursday denied administering Gentamicine on the Senator while treating him for gout.

The nurse said he diluted hydrocortisone in fluid and gave Metamyzole, diazepam, pentazocine and analgin intramuscular to the deceased.
