70 days after abduction, Siasia’s 80-year-old mom still in kidnappers’ den

The abducted mother of former coach Samson Siasia had yet to regain her freedom about 70 days after she was kidnapped.

It was gathered on Sunday that the 80-year-old Mrs Beauty Ogere Siasia was still in the kidnappers’ den and clues about her whereabouts had reportedly remained vague.

She was whisked away on July 15 by heavily armed gunmen who invaded her Odoni country home in Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.

The bandits were said to have escaped with the octogenarian through the River Nun in a speed boat.

It was the second time in four years Madam Siasia would be taken away from her sleepy community by a gang of armed men.

She was abducted in November 2015 by a gang of gunmen who released her after spending 12 days in their custody.

Three days after the incident on July 15, the gunmen had reportedly contacted the Siasia family and demanded the sum of N70million as ransom to set her free.

But on July 30, they reduced the ransom from N70million to N50million despite pleas by Siasia that he was jobless and that they should release his mother on unconditionally.

A family source who confided in our reporter on Sunday said there was no information on Madam Siasia’s destination.

When asked the last time her abductors contacted the family, he said, “I don’t have any information about her. There is no information.”

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer of the Bayelsa State Police Command, Mr. Asinim Butswat, a Superintendent of Police, said the police were not relenting in the effort to rescue the victim.
