The abductors of Kehinde Ikeanabi Jubril, a nursing mother who was kidnapped at Ago-Oja town in Asa Local Government Area of Kwara state, have reached out to her family, Daily Post reports.The four-month old baby of the nursing mother that was dropped by the kidnappers is now in the custody of her step-mother in the town.The suspected kidnappers used the cell phone of the abducted nursing mother to contact the family on Friday according to the community leader of Ago-Oja, Baale Daudu Saludeen Arolu, who spoke with DAILY POST on Saturday.He said though the kidnappers initially demanded N10m for the release of the woman, the family could only mobilise N1.5m.The kidnappers directed the family to deliver the N1.5m to them at a point in Eyeinkorin town on the Ilorin-Lagos highway on Friday, but could not be located when the family of the woman got there.Another message was thereafter sent to the family of the abducted woman on Friday to deliver the ransom at Ogbomoso town in Oyo state, yet they could not find them for the second time.DAILY POST recalls that the nursing mother was abducted about two days to the Eid-el-Fitr celebrations at her husband’s residence, Ago-Oja alongside a student of the Kwara state Polytechnic, Ilorin.The student who eventually died as a result of the injuries he sustained during a bloody encounter with the armed kidnappers, was identified as Oriyomi Babatunde.The kidnappers also collected N400,000 before his release but he later died in the hospital.Meanwhile, the Ago-Oja community leaders in their frantic efforts, have invoked traditional means to secure the release of the abducted nursing mother.
