Samson Siasia’s Mother Reveals Experience In Kidnappers’ Den



Samson Siasia

Beauty Uguoere Siasia, the mother of a former Super Eagles striker and coach, Samson Siasia, has revealed her ordeal with kidnappers.

Naija News reports that the release of Siasia’s 80-year-old mother is coming three weeks after Samson Siasia had pleaded with the kidnappers to release his mother after they collected N1.5m as ransom.

The kidnap of Mrs Siasia makes it the second time she’s being kidnapped in four years.

Recall that the mother to the former Super Eagles coach was kidnapped in November 2015, but was apparently released 12 days after.

Speaking after her release, Madam Beauty said: “I dont know why they keep kidnapping me. Only God knows.”

Mama, as she is fondly called, said after whisking her away to an unknown place, her abductors fed her with garri and bought drugs for her.

She said there was no time they beat her, adding that sometimes the abductors prepared soup for everybody in their camp.

Mama Siasia said, “I was at my house when they came to kidnap me. They took me to the place. They took care of me.

“I was sick and they bought the drugs. They cooked and gave to me.

“They didn’t beat me. There were days that there was no food. Those days they drank garri and gave me garri to drink too.

“Sometimes, they cooked soup, prepare garri and we ate.

“But on Sunday, they told me we had stayed for too long and they were tired of our problem.

“They carried us on a flying boat and dropped us in a village. I dont know the name of the village.

“The carried us to their chairman place. I don’t even know the man. They called Seifa and Seifa came.

“As I am talking to you, I am not well. Before they took me I was not well. I want to go to the hospital.

“They built small house and use tarpaulin to cover the top. That was where they kept us”.
