The National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Emeka Rollas has revealed on a video he shared on social media that the kidnappers of two Nollywood actors, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson, mocked him when they communicated on Monday.
Mr. Rollas said he was laughed at after he told the abductors they have raised ₦1.2million as ransom to free the actors.“Yesterday, while talking to the abductors, we were trying to explain to them that we were putting some funds together, we were contributing. We said that we had about N1.2 million. And they started laughing at us.”
The mockery didn’t stop there as the AGN was asked how much money the wealthy actors on Instagram had contributed to raising the ransom.“Immediately, it got to me that these people are watching us,” he stated.
Recalling that two prominent Nollywood actors and members of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, aka Agbogidi, were kidnapped on Friday after the police Command, Enugu recovered Cynthia okereke’s car .
Therefore, Mr. Rollas has appealed to his colleagues in the movie industry to help raise more money to release Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel saying that the initial ₦1.2million seemed to be inadequate to secure the freedom of their kidnapped.
“ We have dedicated an account, the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Enugu chapter, Zenith Bank for us to make little contributions. I urge all of us to see to it that we make these contributions because we do not know who will be in this kind of situation.But we pray to God that none of us will have this kind of experience. I want to thank all of you for your calls, all your advice, and all your contributions, knowing that it is our own problem. Thank you. God bless you.”
