Former Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia must be breathing a sigh of relief as his mother was finally released after 75 days in captivity.
According to the Vanguard, Beauty Ogere, 78, was finally released after an intervention by APC governorship aspirant in Bayelsa, David Lyon.
Samson Siasia had pleaded for the release of his mother speaking to the BBC a little while ago bemoaning the difficulty of finding her after her abduction and also worried sick because at the time his mother was very ill.
He had said then:The police said it’s been difficult to track these kidnappers, but my great concern is that my mother is very sick,
For someone who is unwell to be held against her will is not only callous but heartbreaking and sad.
So I can only keep appealing to these guys to please let my mother go. I would like for the government or whoever is capable to help me bring my mother back.
What more can I do but plead for assistance from the government, police and my country that I served as a player and coach,” he added.
My mother is seriously sick and this bothers me a lot. I don’t know where or who to turn to at this point.
I’ve not had a job for three years, battling with a Fifa ban appeal and to have my sick mother in the hands of kidnappers, I just feel extremely tired.
It is unknown if Samson Siasia had to pay a ransom or some other thing before his mother’s release, but it is certainly good news that she is now safe and sound and now the focus can go back to her health.
