Samuel Kalu’s mother, Mrs. Julliet Ozuruonye Kalu, has been kidnapped by suspected gunmen and taken to an unknown destination.
According to reports from the Nigerian media quoting a source in Aba, the Super Eagles winger’s mother was driving along the Okpulu Umuobo in the past week when the incident occurred.
The unidentified gunmen blocked her vehicle, then ordered the children out of the car, before taking the player’s mother away.
It is understood that the kidnappers demanded a N50million ransom but raised the amount to an undisclosed figure.
Nothing has been heard from the Bordeaux attacker concerning the issue and the police have not made a statement about the incident.
Kalu is not the first Nigerian player to have his family member abducted with ransoms demanded.
Family members of Nigerian players-just like other most rich people are targets of kidnappers seeking huge ransoms.
Just a few hours before Nigeria’s final game at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, gunmen abducted the father of Super Eagles captain Mikel John Obi.
