The kidnappers responsible for the kidnap of ex-Nigeria coach Samson Siasia’s mother, Beauty Ogere, have released an hostage of theirs, Florence Donana, while the ransom payer has been held captive.
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 on the same day.
The family and the abductors had negotiated a certain amount in ransom for the lives of the captives but turned around to abduct the one who had come to deliver the agreed sum.
Confirming the development, a source condemned the Bayelsa State Police Commissioner, Uche Anozia for being incompetent in his job.
“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 had reportedly accepted a N50million payment after first demanding N70m.
