Mother of Super Eagles winger Samuel Kalu has finally been released by the abductors who kidnapped her for almost a week. The mother of Samuel known as Mrs Juliet was kidnapped in her home town of Umuamacha Umueze in Abia State.
Initially, the abductors were said to have demanded the sum of N3 million ransom for Samuel Kalu’s mother to be released.
But after getting the agreed money, they changed their decision thereby asking for another N15m before they would free Samuel Kalu’s mother.
Unknown story of the saga. Gernot Rohr spent practically every minute of this period with the forward. When he wasn’t with him, he was on the phone.
