The National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Emeka Rollas, gave an update on the abducted Nollywood actors, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, who are yet to be released.
In a report via Vanguard, Emeka said he was mocked by the abductors when he told them about N1.2 million had been raised as ransom to free the actors.
Emeka said the abductors asked him if Nollywood celebrities’ who post on Instagram have contributed their quota.
An extract from his statement read:
“Good morning, esteemed colleagues. This is to brief you about the happenings over five days now on our two colleagues abducted a few days back. The situation still remains the same but we are believing God to do His miracles and wonders at this point in time.
“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.
“They started mocking us and saying ‘all those your celebrities posting on Instagram, how much have they contributed?’ Immediately, it got to me that these people are watching us. It is not the best time to circulate this information on Instagram.”
