Mrs. Beauty Ogere Siasia
Community women and the Siasia family are celebrating the safe return of the mother of embattled former Super Eagles coach, Samson Siasia.
Madam Beauty Ogere Siasia breathed freedom following her release from the kidnappers den after a 76 day incarceration. The 80 year old woman is now re-united with her family in Odoni, Sagbama Local Government, ending weeks of fear and anxiety over her fate.
The Bayelsa State Police Command had
reiterated its commitment to ensuring Madam Siasia’s rescue from her abductors some two weeks ago
The commissioner of Police, CP Uche Anozia gave the assurance while briefing newsmen on the update with the investigation on the kidnap of Mrs. Siasia at the Bayelsa Police Headquarters in Yenagoa.
Mrs. Beauty Siasia was whisked away through the waterways into the creeks by unknown gunmen who invaded her husband’s residence in Odoni, a riverine village in Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State at about 0200hrs on July 15, 2019.
CP Anozie said he led the Command’s Tactical Team to visit the scene of the crime after which investigation commenced, revealing that some useful information have given the investigators a promising lead to some locations on the creeks where the victim may have been kept.
“The Police have been trailing the abductors in spite of the fact that they have been changing locations. The fundamental aspect of our operations that is of interest to us is achievement of positive result and not actually occasional dissemination of information concerning efforts being made by the Police to achieve such result.
“This is why we have not been coming on air to update the public. Our technical team is working assiduously in collaboration with other security agencies to ensure the rescue of Mrs. Beauty Ogere Siasia. The Command is appealing to members of the public to continue to support the Police with useful information to fight crime in Bayelsa,” the CP stated.
The state PPRO Mr Asinim Butswat who confirmed her release, said the command will issue a release in due course.
