Former Super Eagles midfielder Garba Lawal believes the kidnapping of national U-23 team coach Samson Siasia wouldn’t affect the team as they fight for a ticket to the Rio 2016 Olympics against Senegal.
In a chat with Daily Trust yesterday, the ex Roda JC star also said the situation is critical but believes Siasia would be focused on the job at hand considering it’s a national assignment leaving the authorities to continue making efforts towards rescuing the septuagenarian.
“It’s a critical situation really, but what can be done that’s the question (regarding the N150M ransom) because the NFF will tell you that they don’t have money but I’m sure that the team would be focused regardless of the conditions” Lawal said.
Meanwhile, Siasia has revealed the kidnappers are still adamant on the N150 million requested as ransom. The gaffer who is currently in Gambia with the team, revealed his family was still in negotiations with the kidnappers, and that he was hoping God would touch them.
“My family contact that is discussing with the kidnappers is still discussing with them and they have not changed their position on the N150 million ransom request. But all my hope is in God Almighty to touch the hearts of the kidnappers to free my mum,” he said.
Siasia added that neither the Federal Government nor the Bayelsa state government had offered any sort of help so far.
