The mother of Super Eagles player, Samuel Kalu, has been reportedly kidnapped in a community in Abia state.
Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted the mother of Super Eagles’ midfielder, Samuel Kalu and taken her to an unknown destination.
According to reports from Aba, 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.
Calls at the Central Police Station, Aba did not yield any further information on the situation, but The Guardian learnt that the family had been in negotiation with the kidnappers since last week.
