BAYELSA, Nigeria – Beauty Uguoere, the mother of a former Super Eagles striker and coach, Samson Siasia, has recounted her ordeal in the hands of kidnappers.
She was freed two months after she was abducted in her country home in Adoni community, Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
Speaking to reporters, Mrs. Uguoere said she does not know why kidnappers continue to abduct her.
She was first kidnapped in November 2015, before she was released 12 days after.
“I don’t know why they keep kidnapping me. Only God knows. I was at my house when they came to kidnap me. They took me to the place. They took care of me.
“I was sick and they bought the drugs. They cooked (food) and gave to me (to eat).
“They didn’t beat me. There were days that there was no food. Those days they drank garri and gave me garri to drink too.
“Sometimes, they cooked soup, prepare garri and we ate. But on Sunday, they told me we had stayed for too long and they were tired of our problem.
“They carried us on a flying boat and dropped us in a village. I don’t know the name of the village.
“They carried us to their chairman’s place. I don’t even know the man. They called Seifa and Seifa came.
“They built a small house and use tarpaulin to cover the top. That was where they kept us,” she said.
Siasia’s mother, however, added, “As I am talking to you, I am not well. Before they took me I was not well. I want to go to the hospital.”
