Kidnappers have demanded $100,000 for the release of Nollywood actors Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel aka Agbogidi.
Remember that Okereke and Clemson, members of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), were kidnapped on their way home from a movie set in Ozalla Town, Enugu State, on Thursday, July 28.
Speaking with Premium Times on Saturday, July 30, the AGN national president, Emeka Rollas said, “The kidn@ppers 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.”
Meanwhile, the Enugu State Police Command says it has launched an investigation and recovered an abandoned vehicle believed to be Okereke’s.
The vehicle was discovered at Four-Corners on the Enugu-Port-Harcourt Expressway, specifically within Ozalla community in Nkanu West LGA, according to the command’s spokesperson, Daniel Ndukwe.
