Former Super Eagles Coach, Samson Siasia, is expected to cough out 50 million naira for his mother to be released from the den of her abductors.

The amount requested initially was 70 million naira before it was reduced to 50 million after negotiations with the kidnappers.

Since the abduction, the police have been on a manhunt for the unidentified gunmen, but their efforts have not yielded any result.

Siasia, while speaking on the incident, praised the Nigerian police for their efforts, urging them to intensify their search for his mother.

“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 their fresh demands of N50m, I just urge them to be considerate. They have mothers as well.

“The police and other security agencies are doing a great job but my mother is still out there,” Siasia stated.

Checks revealed that the family made available N500, 000 for the release of Siasia’s aged mother but it was rejected by the kidnappers.
