Ogere Siasia, the mother of former Nigerian footballer and coach, Samson Siasia, has been abducted again in the early hours of Monday.
The victim was abducted at her Odoni country home in Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State at about 2 a.m.
Her whereabouts, is not yet known and the abductors had also not established contact with the family.
Siasia who confirmed the kidnap to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), only replied “yes” to a terse message sent to him.
Dennis Siasia, Samson’s brother said the kidnappers have not been in touch, but the police have been informed about the development and rescue efforts have begun.
The abduction marked the latest in a string of violent seizing of Nigerians from their homes, offices and highways by deadly kidnap-for-ransom criminals, a menace across the country.
Dennis Siasia said his footballer brother, who was celebrated as a player and as a coach, has been informed of the incident and had been cooperating with law enforcement authorities to secure the release of their mother.
Mrs Siasia was kidnapped in 2015 and the family parted with millions in ransom to free her, Dennis said.
