Former Super Eagles head coach, Samson Siasia has appealed to the Federal Government and police to aid him in the release of his abducted mother from the den of the kidnappers.
Siasia, who won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations and Atlanta Olympic gold, told BBCSports on Tuesday that he’s overwhelmed with the whole crisis affecting his family coupled with his inability to secure a job.
He also complained bitterly about the poor health condition of his mother and appealed to all and sundry to help in securing the release of his mother.
“The police said it’s been difficult to track these kidnappers, but my great concern is that my mother is very sick,” Siasia told BBC Sport.
“For someone who is unwell to be held against her will is not only callous, but heartbreaking and sad.
“So I can only keep appealing to these guys to please let my mother go. I would like for the government or whoever is capable to help me bring my mother back.”
“What more can I do but plead for assistance from the government, police and my country that I served as a player and coach,” he said.
“My mother is seriously sick and this bothers me a lot. I don’t know where or who to turn to at this point.
“I’ve not had a job for three years, battling with a Fifa ban appeal and to have my sick mother in the hands of kidnappers, I just feel extremely tired.”
