Abductors of Nollywood’s Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel demand $100,000 ransom
Emeka Rollas, president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), says abductors of Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel have demanded $100,000 in ransom payment.
The two were reported missing on Friday, with their family members confirming that they had yet to return from a filming they went to at Ozalla Town in Enugu state.
The assumption was that they had been abducted, given the spate of kidnappings across the country in the past months.
The Enugu police subsequently launched an investigation into the matter and recovered a vehicle belonging to Okereke from where it was said to have been abandoned on the highway.
Rollas, in a chat with newsmen on Saturday, said it has been confirmed that the missing actors became victims of abduction.
He said the abductors are demanding $100,000 in ransom.
“It’s a confirmed kidnap case. They have made contact and demanded for 100k dollars,” he said.
Rollas had earlier implored actors to avoid filming in outskirt of cities without security.
As of when this report was filed, there are claims that a bank account belonging to Okereke had already been emptied of its funds.
