Published

on

Florence Donana, one of the victims abducted alongside Siasia’s mother, Beauty Ogere has been released by their abductors. 

The kidnappers who abducted Ogere at her son’s home in Odoni community of Sagbama Local Government Area, Bayelsa State around 2am on July 15, abducted 66-year-old Donana and her 17-year-old granddaughter same day. 

However after the Donana family negotiated an undisclosed amount of ransom with the kidnappers and sent someone to deliver the money, the ransom payer was held back by the hoodlums. Donana was the only released victim. 

Confirming the development, a source slammed the Bayelsa State Police Commissioner, Uche Anozia, accusing him of being clueless and doing nothing about the abduction that has kept the mother of the former skipper and Super Eagles Coach in the kidnappers’ den for 50 days.

“The 17-year-old granddaughter was not released. The mother of Siasia was also not released because the family had yet to agree on ransom. They are still holding three persons captive. 

“It seems the commissioner of police has forgotten this case. The kidnappers are having fun, tormenting the families of their victims and acting with ease and impunity yet the police have said nothing on this case.

“They have no clues and nobody has been arrested. It seems nothing happened in Bayelsa. It is really bad. Maybe the Inspector-General Police should intervene by sending a special force to crack this crime”, the source told The Nation. 

The kidnappers who established contact with Siasia’s family two days after the attack, had demanded for N70m. They however later reduced the ransom to N50m.
