Kidnapped actors have been released, according to Guild.


Two of its members who were kidnapped in Enugu State, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel (Agbogidi), have been released, according to the Actors Guild of Nigeria.

The group said in a statement distributed by Monalisa Chinda Coker, the Guild's director of communication, on Wednesday that the kidnappers freed the Thespians after being "moved by the spirit of God."

This is to inform the world that the kidnapped actresses, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, have been freed, unharmed, according to the statement. Ejezie Rollas, the National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, confirmed their release by the kidnappers, who had been moved by the spirit of God to free them and leave them unhurt. The guild set up physical examinations and counselling for the victims. The National President conveyed the families' sincere gratitude to the Nollywood community and all Nigerians for their support and prayers during this tough time. He reminded the group's participants to always exercise vigilance regarding their security, both on and off the set of movies.

After working on a movie set, Okereke and Agbodigidi's families couldn't get in touch with them, thus they were reported missing on Saturday.

Later, their kidnappers got in touch with them and demanded a $100,000 ransom, which, according to the Guild's National President Ejezie Rollas in an interview with Sunday Scoop, could not be raised.

Rollas said that while N1.2 million was raised, the kidnappers made fun of their efforts.
