Another victim abducted alongside Kehinde on the same day in the town, Oriyomi Babatunde, was also injured during the abduction and later died in the hospital.
The traditional chief of Ago-Oja, Daudu Arolu, confirmed the discovery of the corpse and burial of Kehinde in a telephone interview with The Punch.
The family of the deceased had reportedly made part payment of the ransom demanded by the kidnappers.
Sources close to the family of the deceased disclosed that latest part payment of N6m demanded by the kidnappers was allegedly delivered before the discovery of the nursing mother’s corpse.
The kidnappers had last Friday reportedly directed the family of the deceased to bring the ransom for her release to Eiyekonrin town, a suburb of Ilorin, and later to Ogbomoso in Oyo State, but they could not be located.
Kehinde was abducted two days to the Eid-el-Fitr celebrations at her husband’s residence in Ago-Oja.
It was gathered that the kidnappers initially targeted her husband, said to be a cattle dealer, but abducted the wife because the husband was not at home when the kidnappers came calling.
