Nigeria: Kidnappers of Nollywood actors demanding $100,000 as a ransom as reported by the AGN national president, Emeka Rollas, this Saturday 30th of July 2022.
The actors were reported missing after their family members confirmed they didn’t return home from a film location at Ozalla Town, Enugu state, on Thursday.
According to the report, prominent Nollywood actors and members of the Actors Guild of Nigeria(AGN), Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, aka Agbogidi, were kidnapped in an Enugu suburb, and their abductors contacted their families twenty-four hours after the kidnapping took place.
On Saturday, the AGN national president, Emeka Rollas, told PREMIUM TIMES that the kidnappers are requesting a whooping sum of $100,000 as a ransom for their release.
He said, “The kidnappers have made contact with the families and are demanding the sum of $100,000. We pray to God for his intervention and for Him to put confusion in their midst.
“We are also working closely with the different security operatives, but we are not sure what to expect from them because the same thing is happening everywhere in the country.”
Mr Rollas also said members of the Guild are working closely with the families of the victims and the security forces to ensure their safe release.
In a Punch newspaper interview published Saturday, Mr Rollas said, ‘‘the kidnappers cleared the monies in Cynthia Okereke’s account this morning’’.
