Kidnappers Demand N70m Ransome From Samson Siasia Over His Mum, 2 Others
A former Coach and skipper of the Super Eagles, Samson Siasia, has spoken to his mother, Beauty Ogere and two others abducted from his Odoni community, Sagbama Local Government Area, Bayelsa State, by unknown gunmen.
The gunmen, who reportedly called Siasia with a foreign number, were said to have demanded N70m to release the 80-year-old woman.
Siasia’s mother for the second time in four years was abducted on July 15th by gunmen, who fled the community to an unknown place through the River Nun.
The gunmen also attacked another apartment in the Odoni community kidnapping 66-year-old Florence Donana and her 17-year-old daughter.
A family source, who spoke in confidence, confirmed that the marauders established contact for the first time with Siasia at about 11pm on Wednesday to begin negotiation for ransom.
He said before they commenced negotiation, Siasia requested to speak with his mother to ascertain proof of life.
