A Man reportedly has been arrested in connection with the kidnapping of Liverpool star Luis Diaz’s father.
According to Cambio, police arrested a man suspected of participating in the kidnapping of the father of Liverpool star Luis Diaz on Wednesday. Reports suggest that this man tracked Luis Diaz’s parents and provided information to the kidnappers.
Police have offered a £40,000 reward for information about the kidnapping. Luis Diaz’s parents were kidnapped on Saturday. His mother, Cilenis Marulanda, was released hours later, but his father, Luis Manuel Diaz, is still being held captive.
Barrancas residents held a candle-lit march to demand the release of Luis Manuel Diaz. Luis Diaz’s father coached young footballers and is a popular figure in the town.
“I feel a pain in my soul because I am a mother too and it is an injustice that a son of the people, a son of Barranquera and Colombian families, is in that sadness,” Alis Amaya, a citizen who attended the march, said to CaracolTV.
“They have taken the soul of a noble and simple person from us,” said Miguel Cantillo, another person in attendance.
