JUST IN: Siasia’s mother freed by kidnappers

0

Beauty Ogere Siasia, the 80 year-old mother of former Super Eagles skipper and coach, Samson Siasia, has been released by her abductors, according to reports from Bayelsa state.

She was kidnapped on July 15 by heavily armed gunmen who invaded her Odoni country home in Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.

It was the second time in four years Madam Siasia would be taken away.

Former Nigeria coach and player Samson Siasia has filed an appeal with Fifa and the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) against a life ban imposed by the world football’s governing body.

Fifa handed Siasia the ban last month for agreeing to “receive bribes in relation to the manipulation of matches.”

The 52-year-old has announced publicly that he began the process to clear his name by filing a Fifa appeal on 27 August and at Cas two days later.

“I’ve appealed against Fifa’s decision and you will probably hear the results like you hear about the ban,” Siasia confirmed.
