    We can’t raise $100,000 ransom for kidnapped actors – AGN

    Published By:

    The president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Emeka Rollas has confirmed that the abductors of the two Nollywood actors have contacted their families and demanded the sum of $100,000 to release them, but Emeka said the guild can’t afford to pay the ransom.

    Wakadaily reported few days ago that Two Nollywood actors, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornell, popularly known as Agbogidi, were reported missing by their family members on Friday after they failed to return home from a filming they went to at Ozalla Town in Enugu State.

    The AGN boss said “it is true that their abductors have contacted the family members and demanded $100,000. Our worst fears have been confirmed and we are really worried about the safety of our veteran actors. We have been working tirelessly in the last 24 hours to make contact and speak with relevant authorities.”

    Rollas also disclosed in an interview with Sunday Scoop, “that the Actors Guild of Nigeria cannot set apart funds for rescuing kidnapped actors, because we have not even set aside funds to help ailing actors. The insecurity in the nation is affecting everybody, not only actors.

    He further called on actors not to go outside the town to shoot films, even those who are filming in cities should ensure that they have adequate security.
