Emeka Rollas, the national president of the AGN, revealed this today Saturday.

Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, aka Agbogidi, two well-known Nollywood actors and AGN members who were kidnapped in an Enugu suburb twenty-four hours ago, have been contacted by their captors’ families. NewsReport gathered.

The actors’ families confirmed they did not arrive home from a filming location in Ozalla Town, Enugu state, on Thursday, so their disappearance was reported.

Both actors are renowned for starring in movies shot in Enugu and Delta states.

On Saturday, the AGN national president, Emeka Rollas, told PREMIUM TIMES that the kidnappers are requesting a lump sum in dollars.

He said, “The kidnappers 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.”

Mr Rollas also said members of the Guild are working closely with the families of the victims and the security forces to ensure their safe release.

Extra Measures
As part of measures to forestall a repeat occurrence, Mr Rollas said that the Guild had ordered its members not to shoot outside of the metropolis and to ensure that they make adequate provisions for security in their locations.

AGN’s Director of Communications, Monalisa Chinda, broke the news of the kidnap of the actors in a statement made available to PREMIUM TIMES on Friday.

Ms Chinda said their kidnap had increased fear amongst members about the safety of actors filming in the country.
