The former coach of the Super Eagles, Sampson Siasia’s mother has been kidnapped. In the early morning of July 9th 76-year-old Ogere Siasia was abducted from her own home in Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State. The suspects are still unknown, although the motive is thought to be financial.
This is not the first abduction of Mrs. Siasia as she had been taken before in November 2015. She was held for thirteen (13) days by her kidnappers before being released after a large ransom was paid.
The kidnappers are yet to contact the family, but the police are aware of the incident and they are working diligently to do everything in their power to ensure her safe return.
