The mother of Bordeaux and Nigeria winger Samuel Kalu has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen and demand a whopping 15 Million ransom before her release, Police in the south-west on Nigeria investigated Monday.

As indicated by reports from Aba, Mrs. Kalu was driving with some of her kids along the Okpulu Umuobo zone of the city a week ago when the unidentified kidnappers hindered her vehicle, ordered the kids out of the vehicle and kidnapped Samuel Kalu’s mother.

“The incident happened on the 27th of February,” Abia State police communications officer Godfrey Ogbona told AFP.

“No arrest has been made so far on the incident, but an investigation into the matter is moving on towards ensuring that she is rescued unhurt and the perpetrators are brought to book,” he said.

The 21-year-old footballer Kalu, says he has gotten a payoff request of 15 million Naira (€36 600).

The kidnappers asked for a ransom of N3 million the first time which was given to them and (they) assured us that they will release her.

We waited the whole night we did not see her. The next morning they called again (saying) that they want more money, that the money was (being) given to another person. Now they are asking for the ransom of N15 million.”

The police are aware. The Commissioner of Police in Abia State knows about it too,” Kalu added in a telephone interview from France

Meanwhile, calls at the Central Police Station, Aba did not yield to release any information regarding the issue, developing reports indicate that the family had been in constant negotiation with the kidnappers since last week.

The 21-year-old made his debut for Nigeria in an AFCON qualifying match against Libya in October 2018.

Kalu was named by coach Gernot Rohr in Nigeria’s squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against Seychelles and the friendly clash against the Pharaohs of Egypt later this month.
