Samson Siasia’s mother kidnapped

News emerging this morning reveals that the
mother of current head coach of Nigeria’s U-23
football team, Samson Siasia has been
kidnapped. According to reports, gunmen stormed
the family residence of the Siasia’s in the early
hours of Tuesday morning at Odoni community of
Sagama Local Council Area of Bayelsa State and
forcefully whisked away Siasia’s mother on a
motorcycle.
Bayelsa State
Police
Command
spokesperson,
ASP Ansinim
Butswat, has
confirmed the
incident saying
that the matter
has been
reported, but
details were still sketchy.
Speaking to the media on the incident, a distraught
Siasia has expressed his confusion at the
occurrence of the event. Siasia said: “Right now I
am confused, from the story I got, three men on
motorbike stormed my parents’ house in my
village Odoni in Bayelsa State, shot sporadically
into the air before taking my old mother away on a
bike.
“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.”
In a statement released on the Nigerian Football
Federation (NFF) website, NFF president, Amaju
Pinnick has appealed to the kidnappers to release
the 72 year old mother of the coach. “This is quite
disturbing. We are just preparing for a crucial 2018
FIFA World Cup qualifying match, and the U-23
boys are already in The Gambia for a pre-Cup of
Nationstraining camp. Why this?
“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,” Said
Pinnick. As at the time of this report, it was
revealed that the kidnappers are yet to demand
ransom from the family.
