TopNaija reports that Mr. Oluwole Agboola, a farmer who was last year abducted in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital has been found dead.
A family source confirmed the development to newsmen on Tuesday.
It was learned that the death of the farmer is coming after the family had allegedly paid the sum of one million, six hundred and fifty thousand nairas as a ransom for the release of their kinsman.
TopNaija recalls that Mr. Agooola was abducted in Ibadan, on Monday, December 28, 2020
Agboola was abducted inside his farm located at Abaodo area in Olukitibi village in Akinyele Local Government Area of the state by six armed men dressed in military camouflage.
It was gathered that the kidnappers had already collected the sum of N1.65 million as ransom from the family of the victim.
TopNaija, however, gathered that the kidnappers went ahead to kill the victim after the family had paid the ransom.
A brother to the deceased, Mr Olakunle Agboola, confirmed the killing of the farmer on Tuesday.
He added that his brother was killed ten days after the abductors had collected the ransom from the family.
He said, “My brother, Wole Agboola, was killed after a huge ransom was paid and we later found his body inside the bush near Aba Odo yesterday at 6.0 clock, just a bit close to where he was abducted.”.
All efforts made by TopNaija to get a reaction from the Spokesman of the state Police command, Mr. Olugbenga Fadeyi proved abortive.
Calls put through his mobile phone were not successful while a message sent to him has not been replied to as of the time of filing this report on Tuesday.
