Samson Siasia on Friday begged the kidnappers of his 80-year-old mother,
Madam Beauty Ogere to release her unconditionally. The kidnappers
reportedly established contact with Siasia’s family and demanded N70m to
release their victim.
Siasia, who is currently out of the
country, said his cousin spoke with the kidnappers, who demanded the
ransom. He, however, said he was currently out of job and did not have
such money to pay as ransom. He appealed to the kidnapper to set his
mother free because of her old age and failing health adding that the
victim might not survive the cold weather.
He said: “The
kidnappers I just want to say please, I beg you. The woman is old please
release her. I don’t have a job in the last three years. She is an old
woman, with this cold, she may not survive it. I dont have that kind of
money they are asking for,” he said.
