Beauty Ogere Siasia, the kidnapped mother of former Super Eagles coach, Samson Siasia, is yet to be released after 55 days in captivity.

Her whereabouts are still not clear in spite of a manhunt for the kidnappers by the security operatives.

Madam Siasia was abducted on July 15 by the hoodlums, who stormed her Odoni, Bayelsa residence in Sagbama local area of the state and took her in a speed boat to an unknown destination.

Several negotiations between Siasia’s family and the gang have been made concerning the 50 million naira ransom but members of the family, including Samson Siasia, are still struggling to adhere to the demand of the kidnappers.

It was initially pegged to 70 million before it was later reduced to 50 million owing to the plea of Siasia, saying he has been jobless for years and that his mother should be set free unconditionally.

A dependable source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, revealed that the destination of Madam Siasia is not yet known.
