Abductors of Nollywood’s Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel demand $100,000 ransom

Published

Emeka Rollas, president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), says abductors of Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel have demanded $100,000 in ransom payment.

The two were reported missing on Friday, with their family members confirming that they had yet to return from a filming they went to at Ozalla Town in Enugu state.

The assumption was that they had been abducted, given the spate of kidnappings across the country in the past months.

The Enugu police subsequently launched an investigation into the matter and recovered a vehicle belonging to Okereke from where it was said to have been abandoned on the highway.

Rollas, in a chat with newsmen on Saturday, said it has been confirmed that the missing actors became victims of abduction.

He said the abductors are demanding $100,000 in ransom.

“It’s a confirmed kidnap case. They have made contact and demanded for 100k dollars,” he said.

Rollas had earlier implored actors to avoid filming in outskirt of cities without security.

As of when this report was filed, there are claims that a bank account belonging to Okereke had already been emptied of its funds.

Nigerian singer, Kizz Daniel, has tendered an apology to his Tanzanian fans for failing to show up at a music even in the country on Sunday.

This is also as he made a clarification that he was not arrested by the police rather he was invited for questioning.

BODEX BLOG recalls that the music star was reported to have been arrested in Dar es Salaam on Monday, August 8 for failing to perform at the show.

During a press conference on Tuesday, Kizz Daniel dismissed reports that he was arrested, saying that the police only questioned him for the behaviour of fans who had earlier trashed the venue in anger over his non-appearance.

He explained his side of the story, apologised and promised a free show for Friday in collaboration with the show promoter Str8up Vibes.

“We agreed to put up a show on Friday. A free show. So, I will be partnering with Str8up Vibes. Also, I must apologise to the fans. None of this was intentional. I love my job. Mainly, I love performing.

“I didn’t mean to disrespect the fans. It was never intentional. I wanted to perform. I came to Tanzania to perform, but due to some circumstances way over my power, we couldn’t make that happen.

I apologise once again to the people of Tanzania, and I hope you guys give me another chance to give you a show, to give you a proper show, a beautiful show,” he said.
