SWITZERLAND, JULY 15 – The mother of Samson Siasia, former Nigeria international and coach Ogere Siasia has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen in the Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa state.
According to media reports, Mrs. Siaisa was abducted around 2am after the gunmen fired sporadic gunshots to scare the Adoni community.
This is the second time the mother of the ex-Nigeria U23 coach was abducted in the Southern part of Nigeria.
In November 2015, Madam Siasia spent 13 days in the kidnappers’ den before she was released after the family paid a ransom of 600,000 naira.
Siasia has been out of management since he led Nigeria’s Dream Team VI to win bronze at 2016 Rio Olympics.
He played for Super Eagles during his playing career and also had two managerial stints at the helm of the senior national team.
