The four-month old baby of the nursing mother was dropped and the woman ferried away to an unknown destination only for the kidnappers to reach the family demanding ransom for her release.
While the nursing mother was killed and her body later found in the bush within the community, the student died in the hospital as a result of the injuries sustained in a bloody encounter with the armed kidnappers, even after N400,000 ransom was paid for his release.
In an earlier incident, the Magaji Erubu, Dr Erubu, a former physician to former Governor Bukola Saraki, was also kidnapped in the area while returning from a trip to Ilorin, but was later set free after days in captivity.
