Kidnapped 76-Year-Old Siasia’s Mother, Ogere, Regains Freedom After 90 Days


After about three months of her kidnap, the septuagenarian mother of former Nigerian coach and ex-international, Samson Siasia, has been released.

Madam Ogere Siasia, 76, and two other people were abducted at Odoni in Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State early July.

The woman had been kidnapped twice in the last four years.

She was abducted in November 2015 by three men on a motorcycle in the same village.

It was not clear if ransom was paid before her release but Siasia had pleaded with the abductors to free her that he had no money.
