The abductors of Beauty Siasia, mother of former Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia, have demanded N50 million for the release of the 76-year-old woman.
Concise News reported that the Kidnappers had earlier requested for the sum of N70m.
She was abducted by unidentified gunmen on July 15, alongside 65-year-old Florence Donana and her 17-year-old granddaughter from her home in Odoni, Sagbama area of Bayelsa state.
Siasia’s family reportedly offered the kidnappers N500, 000 for the release of their mother but it was rejected.
In an interview with Sports Extra, Siasia said: “They have made contact with us and they have told us what they want. They should know I retired long ago.”
“I can’t match the fresh demands of N50m, I just urge them to be considerate. They have mothers as well.”
Siasia commended the Nigeria Police Force for their efforts but pleaded that they intensify their efforts towards the release of his mother.
“The Police and other security agencies are doing a great job but my mother is still out there,” he said.
