After 54 days in Kidnapper’s den, Kidnappers of Siasia’s mother held ransom payer in captivity
Unknown gunmen who abducted Siasia’s mother, Beauty Ogere have held the 17-year-old granddaughter of Siasia’s mother and also the ransom payer in captivity.
Barely few hours after the release of Florence Donana who was abducted alongside Siasia’s mother, the incident occurred.
According to Nation reports, the kidnappers who abducted Ogere at her son’s home in Odoni community of Sagbama Local Government Area, Bayelsa State around 2am on July 15, abducted 66-year-old Donana and her 17-year-old granddaughter same day.
However after the Donana family negotiated an undisclosed amount of ransom with the kidnappers and sent someone to deliver the money, the ransom payer was held back by the hoodlums. Donana was the only released victim.
Confirming the development, a source slammed the Bayelsa State Police Commissioner, Uche Anozia, accusing him of being clueless and doing nothing about the abduction that has kept the mother of the former skipper and Super Eagles Coach in the kidnappers’ den for 50 days.
“The 17-year-old granddaughter was not released. The mother of Siasia was also not released because the family had yet to agree on ransom. They are still holding three persons captive.
“It seems the commissioner of police has forgotten this case. The kidnappers are having fun, tormenting the families of their victims and acting with ease and impunity yet the police have said nothing on this case.
“They have no clues and nobody has been arrested. It seems nothing happened in Bayelsa. It is really bad. Maybe the Inspector-General Police should intervene by sending a special force to crack this crime”, the source disclosed.
The kidnappers who established contact with Siasia’s family two days after the attack, had demanded for N70m. They however later reduced the ransom to N50m.
