Gunmen Kidnap Nigerian Star’s Mother, Demand N50m Ransom

Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted the mother of Super Eagles’ midfielder, Samuel Kalu and taken her to an unknown destination.

Reports coming in from Aba, the commercial capital of Abia State say Mrs. Kalu was driving with some of her children along the Okpulu Umuobo area of the city last week when the unidentified gunmen blocked her vehicle, ordered the children out of the car and took the player’s mother away.

A source close to the family said the kidnappers initially demanded a N50 million ransom, but later upped the prize, as they believe they would get more from the Girondins Bordeaux star.

The Guardian reports that the family had been in negotiation with the kidnappers since last week.
