Nigeria winger Samuel Kalu’s mother released by kidnappers

Mother of Nigeria and Bordeaux attacker Samuel Kalu has
been released by her captors after being held for nearly a
week for ransom.
Police in the south-east of Nigeria announced on Tuesday,
via spokesperson Godfrey Ogbona, that Ozuruonye Juliet Kalu
had been liberated – it is not known the exact amount that
was demanded by the kidnappers and whether or not that
amount was paid:
“She was released around midnight (2300 GMT) of Monday
and she has been reunited with her people. Circumstances
surrounding her release has not been disclosed to me for
now. But we are still investigating the incident in a bid
towards ensuring that those who carried out the act are
arrested and brought to book.”
Quotes attributed to the Bordeaux football player indicated
that a partial ransom had been paid, only for the gunmen who
captured Juliet to demand more money.
