I’m heart-broken – Siasia laments over mother’s Kidnap


Former Super Eagles player and coach Samson Siasia said gunmen who kidnapped his mother, Beauty, were yet to contact the church and his family, Sports Extra reports.

Beauty Siasia was carried away over the waterways to an unidentified destination by armed men around 2:00 am from her apartment in the riverine Odoni, Sagbama Local Government Area of the state in the early hours of Monday.

It is the second time the who has been abducted in the last four years, having suffered the same fate in November 2015 and was released 12 days later.

“I’m heart-broken as I speak now,” Siasia told The PUNCH.

“We are waiting for the kidnappers to make contact to tell us their demands so my mother can be released.

“I just don’t know why this keep happening but I just hope that she returns safe and in good health. That is the most important thing to me and my family right now.”

Siasia’s brother, Dennis replied that their mother was carried away without her Blood Pressure drugs and mobile phone.

He notified that the failure of their mother to remember phone numbers may have slowed down contacts from her abductors since she was taken away without her phone.

“Yes, the abductors have not contacted the family,” Dennis said.

“We have reported to the Police. She was taken away without taking along her drugs. Even if they ask her for our numbers, she would not be able to help because she cannot recall mobile numbers. We are full of prayers and hoping she would be released soon.”
