Samson Siasia begs mums’ abductors to accept N500, 000 ransom
Samson Siasia’s, former Super Eagles striker and coach, and his family have pleaded with his mother’s abductors to accept N500, 000, explaining he had been out of job for a while.
The abductors of Samson Siasia’s mother, Mrs. Beauty Ogere Siasia, have reduced their demand for the release of the 79-year-old woman to N50 million from initial N70million.
Madam Siasia was kidnapped 16 days ago alongside 65-year-old Florence Donana and her 17-year old granddaughter.
The victims were taken away from their Odoni community, in Sagbama local government area of Bayelsa State, on July 15 at about 2 a.m.
“The kidnappers have reduced the ransom from N70 million to N50 million without consideration to the health of the woman.
“The family offered to pay N500, 000 to secure the freedom of the woman but the kidnappers rebuffed the offer saying it was too small,” a family member said.
The family member raised concerns over the health of Ogere given the rainy season and extremely cold weather.
“We are begging the abductors to set our mother free. We don’t have the kind of money they are asking for. They should please respect the age of the woman and release her,” he appealed.
The Bayelsa State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Butswat Asinim, assured that the police were working seriously on the matter.
The whereabouts of the victims remain unknown.
