The abductors of two Nollywood Actors known for movies produced in Enugu and Delta state, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, aka Agbogidi, have demanded for a sum of $100,000 for the release of the captives.
The unknown gunmen who kidnapped the duo in a movie location had reportedly contacted family members of the captives about 24 hours after they were declared missing.
The duo were said to have gone on a shooting assignment before the were declared missing.
The development is said to have thrown the community of actors into confusion with the task of raising the funds for their release.
President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, who said the guild is working with relevant security agencies to ensure safe return confirmed that contact has been established with the families
“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.”
Already, the guild has warned its members against shootings in remote areas unless they arrange adequate security for themselves.
