FLASH BACK PHOTOS: The Release of Siasia’s Mother

By Funmi Aworele – October 3, 2019

The mother of Samson Siasia, the Nigerian ex-football international and former Super Eagles Coach, Madam Ogere Betty,  has said she wants her abductors arrested and prosecuted.

The 76-year-old woman was released on Sunday after spending ten weeks in custody.

She was kidnapped on July 15 at her Odoni residence in Sagbama, Bayelsa state.

She had previously been kidnapped in November 2015 but regained freedom 13 days later.

In an interview with Punch, the octogenarian said although she is back home, she is still unhappy because she had suffered.

“Though I have been released and brought back home, I am not happy. I have suffered. I don’t know the people that kidnapped me. I am not happy at all,” she was quoted to have said.

“They suffered me too much. If what I suffered is good, they should also suffer. They should go to prison. They should be tortured.

“This is the second time they have kidnapped me. I have not done anyone any wrong. I will not say anything, but everything is in God’s hand.”
