Dennis Siasia, the younger brother to former Super Eagles Coach, Samson, has confirmed the abduction of their 76 years old mother, Madam Beauty Ogere Siasia at her residence in Odoni community in Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
According to him, the kidnappers whisked away their aged mother without taking along her High Blood Pressure drugs and mobile phone.
The incident, which occurred during the early hours of Monday, threw the community into shock as two other women, Florence Dounana, age 65, and her daughter Selekere Dounana, age 17, were also kidnapped.
Also speaking to Tribune Online on the telephone, Mr. Moses Siasia, one-time governorship candidate and businessman “yes, the abductors have not contacted the family. We have reported to the Police. She was taken away without taking along her drugs.
“Even if they ask her for our numbers, she would not be able to help because she cannot recall mobile numbers. We are full of prayers and hoping she would be released soon.”
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Police Force, Bayelsa State Command, said it has launched a manhunt to apprehend the kidnappers and rescue the victims as quick as possible.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Asinim Butswat, in a statement issued in Yenagoa confirmed the incident, saying the kidnappers who were heavily armed whisked their victims away through the River Nun to an unknown destination.
