A 30-year-old single mother, identified simply as Yetunde, has reportedly died during an illegal abortion performed on her by a quack in Ikirun, Osun State.
The lifeless body of the deceased was recovered by the roadside in the Idi Isin area of the town by police personnel on Tuesday.
While residents of the area were confused about how the corpse got to the point where it was recovered, sources said the police arrested one Najeem Adejumo, who works in a private hospital in the area, where the late Yetunde was believed to have procured the abortion.
The deceased, also known as Iya Farida, was described by sources in the Are Ago compound, where she resided, as easygoing; leaving many of the residents to wonder what could have led her to procure abortion.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Yemisi Opalola, said police personnel recovered the corpse by the roadside on Tuesday.
Opalola stated that the command had arrested a suspect in connection with the crime, adding that the man had made useful confession.
