Tension Mounts As Kidnappers Abduct Samson Siasia’s Mother In Bayelsa For The 2nd Time In 4 Years

Premium Times – Madam Beauty Ogere Siasia, the mother of Nigerian footballer and coach, Samson Siasia, has been abducted again. This comes barely four years after she was first abducted and millions paid out as ransom for her release.

The incident occurred at about 2:00 a.m. in Odoni, Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, according to her son and the footballer’s brother, Dennis Siasia.

Two others were also said to have been abducted alongside the 76-year-old. A spokesperson for the police in Bayelsa did not immediately return requests for comments from PREMIUM TIMES.


Dennis Siasia said the kidnappers have not been in touch, but the police have been informed about the development and rescue efforts have begun.

The abduction marked the latest in a string of violent seizing of Nigerians from their homes, offices and highways by deadly kidnap-for-ransom criminals, a menace across the country.

Dennis Siasia said his footballer brother, who was celebrated as a player and as a coach, has been informed of the incident and had been cooperating with law enforcement authorities to secure the release of their mother.

Mrs Siasia was kidnapped in 2015 and the family parted with millions in ransom to free her, Dennis said.

    LOOK WHAT IRRESPONSIBLE LEADERSHIP HAS turned our country into! From meaningless boko haram onslaughts to unbearable spate of kidnapping, and then the bold and arrogant Fulani herdsmen attacks. Have we not become like jungle dwellers, the beasts that crawl the thick and dreary wilderness? Sometimes I don’t blame those guys who try to leave this country by all means, even through the torturous Sahara and the insatiably blood-thirsty Mediterranean sea.

    Kidnappers cannot kidnap politicians and their families because they have police escorts. That’s why they don’t care.

    Release the aged woman and devote such energy to go after the herdsmen ravaging our farmlands and killing everything that stands on their way.

    Samson, you know your mom deserves more than this! Once she survived the first kidnap, why did you let her stay back in the village!
    Even Ghana is more peaceful than Nigeria. Once God release her this time, relocate her fast.
    I am praying for her release. God will see us through.

    The kidnappers, the Armed Robbers, the Fulanis Fulanis herdsmen imported from Mali, Senegal, Niger, and Chad or the bandits, they are all ocensrated by same party and party leaders called PDP.
    Unless we proscribe PDP and their members, Nigerians will not have peace. They are looking for every means to return to power and you must understand that 30 years of Nigeria budgets are already in the hands of PDP therefore, they have money to finance all the criminals they hired and engage to ferment trouble in Nigeria.
