Sports: Gunmen Kidnap Siasia's Mother

The mother of the National Under 23 football team Samson Siasia was this morning November 17 2015, kidnapped  gunmen from her residence at Odoni community of  Sagama Local Council Area of Bayelsa State. The kidnap has been confirmed by the State’s Police Spokesperson ASP Ansinim Butswat.

No demands have been made as the time of this publication. However, appeals have been coming in from different quarters calling for the release of the 72 year old woman.

Samson Siasia has appealed to the kidnappers to release his aged mother as according to him, he has no money to offer them. Siasia said, “What do they expect from me? I don’t have money, I am right now on national duty, and need all the time to concentrate on this very important national task. So, I beg them to please release my mother so that I can concentrate on this task of qualifying the U-23 National Team for the men’s football event of the Rio Olympics.” Siasia surely does not need this kind of distraction.

The NFF has also lent its voice in the call for the release of Siasia’s mother. In a statement by Pinnick, he said “All we can do is to appeal to the kidnappers to free Samson Siasia’s aged mother. Samson is on a critical national assignment presently and the last he needs is this kind of distraction.”

We pray for the safe return of Samson Siasia’s mother.
