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

She was abducted on July 15 by heavily armed gunmen who invaded her Odoni country house in the Sagbama local government area in Bayelsa state.

It was the second time in four years that Mrs. Siasia would have been needed.

The former coach and player of Nigeria, Samson Siasia, has appealed to FIFA and the Court of Sports Arbitration (Cas) against a life ban imposed by the governing body of world football.

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.
