As the abductors of Hajia Abdullahi Laraba, mother of the NFF's former president, refuse to reduce the N200m ransom, members of the family have cried out for help, stressing that their hope is still hanging.

The worried members of the house, who spoke with DailySunSport revealed that the kidnappers had been in touch with them through telphone conversation and had assured us of the old woman's safety but have refused to allow their mother speak to them.

This makes it difficult for them to believe what they were told by the kidnappers. 'To tell you the truth, since Monday evening, we have found it difficult to sleep with our two eyes closed, as we are not sure of the whereabouts of our mother.

We are yet to get any break through. The worse is that these people have refused to see reason with us, instead they maintained that they were not going to let her go unless we handover the huge sum of money which is beyond our reach. But they have assured us that our mother is safe. All we are relying on now is to pray that God will touch their hearts. There is nothing difficult for God to do, and I see it as a trying time for our family and I see Him coming to our rescue'.

Now, it is two days and still counting since Hajia Laraba was kidnapped from her home in Idah in Kogi State on her way back from office.
