AGN confirms release of kidnapped Nollywood actors 


The Actors Guild of Nigeria AGN, on Wednesday, confirmed the release of two abducted members Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Agbogidi, in Enugu State last week.

According to the statement issued by the Actors Guild of Nigeria via its official Instagram account, it read; “This is to inform the public that the kidnapped actors, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, have been released, unhurt. The elated National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ejezie Rollas, announced their release by the abductors who were touched by the spirit of God to set them free and unharmed.

“The guild has arranged for medical checks and psychological support for the victims.

“On behalf of their families, the National President expressed our heartfelt appreciation to the Nollywood industry and Nigerians at large for the support and prayers during this trying period.

He also urged members to be security conscious on and off film sets and always take precautionary measures on their personal security at all times.“

Wakadaily earlier reported that Two Nollywood actors, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornell, popularly known as Agbogidi, were reported missing by their family members on Friday 29 July, 2022, after they failed to return home from a filming they went to at Ozalla Town in Enugu State.

The kidnappers requested a $100,000 ransom before the release, which AGN had earlier pleaded that the family could only raise the sum of N1.2 million and the abductors mocked their efforts.

However, on Wednesday the actors were released but didn’t say if any ransom was paid or not.
