Samson Siasia’s mother regains freedom from kidnappers after 10 weeks
The abducted mother of Samson Siasia, former Super Eagles Coach, Mrs Beauty Ogere Siasia has been released by her abductors, Bayelsa State Police Command says.
Mrs Siasia was kidnapped on July 15 by heavily armed gunmen in her Odoni country home Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa state.
According to a member of the family, Eworikumo Siasia the 80-year-old woman was freed on Sunday morning by her abductors and that she is with family members at their country home.
It was the second time in four years Madam Siasia would be taken away.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Asinim Butswat, a Superintendent of Police, said the police command would issue an official statement later.
Samson Siasia had constantly pleaded with the kidnappers to release his mother as he did not have the huge amount of money they were demanding.
The family recently paid N1.5 million ransom to the abductors who refused to release the octogenarian few weeks ago, rather they released a family member who was abducted along with her.
