Kidnappers kill Oyo farmer after N2m ransom was collected
Wole Agboola, an abducted Oyo farmer, was killed by kidnappers after his family received a ransom of N2m.
Remember that on Monday, December 28, 2020, six armed men dressed in military camouflage abducted the University of Ibadan graduate from his piggy/fish farm located in Nagbede village via Aba-odo in Oyo.
Kidnappers kill Oyo farmer after N2m ransom collection
A few miles from where he was abducted, the decomposing remains of Agboola were retrieved from the bush in Aba-Odo on Monday, January 11, by police.
Olakunle Agboola, a brother to the deceased, who was also a journalist who confirmed the development, said his brother was killed and his body was found 10 days after the family paid the ransom.
“After a huge ransom was paid, my brother, Wole Agboola, was killed and we later found his body inside the bush near Aba Odo yesterday (Monday) at 6 p.m. just a bit near where he was abducted,” Olakunle said.
Meanwhile, the deceased’s friends have taken him to Facebook to mourn. Last year, one Olaniyan Alphonso said Agboola lost his father.
Hmmm, we met on this street, and he became a client of mine, and then a friend. We met a few times, we talked about business, we met a man full of ideas… In July, I was to attend the burial of his father, but distance and covid, maybe it would have been a great moment together. Regrettably shocked! Prayed, paid and murdered yet! Unhappy! Sad! We’ve been failing him! The machine does it; all of us are a party to this! Engr.-Engr. Makinde Seyi! This isn’t what’s going on in the North East!?? Wherefore!?? Enough! Enough! Allah! God! Let my brother rest in peace, Agboola Oluwole, we have disappointed you! “He was writing.
Reverend Boladale Ige, the pastor of the church where the deceased worshipped, believed he may have been murdered soon after he was abducted.
“A dear brother’s painful departure,” reads “Romans 14:8-For whether we live, we live to the Lord; and whether we die, we die to the Lord; whether we live, or whether we die, we are the Lord’s,” said Rev. Ige in a message.
It is with a heavy heart that I announce the painful and unexpected death of our brother, Elder Wole Agboola, who sadly fell on his farm on Monday, 28 December 2020, into the cruel hands of the kidnappers.
“Despite all efforts, shortly after his abduction, his abductors seem to have killed him. This is a very painful and sad occurrence for us as a church family and for his immediate family. At this time, however, we must encourage each other to hold firmly to the infinite words of God and look to Him, keeping our gaze on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
A sad reality of the state of insecurity in our country, Nigeria, is the occurrence of the past two weeks. We remain fastidious, praying for the deliverance of our nation and people from the enemy’s grips. And we will be victorious. As we mourn, we will not mourn as those who have no hope that we believe in God, and we know that our brother has gone to heaven to be with his Lord Jesus whom he loves.
We who remain must, without fear or oppression, remain steadfast, looking to Jesus. For in Christ Jesus, we have victory, and we know that He is able to hold us all before His coming.
Mathew’s 10:vs 28.. ‘And do not fear those who kill the body, but are unable to kill the soul: but rather fear Him who in hell can destroy both soul and body,’
“The avenger is God. In our God and in the Holy Spirit, we take refuge. And trust that on the Day of Resurrection, we will all meet. Mind, please, to pray for his wife and children and the families of the church.
