Two Nigerian movie stars, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, aka Agbogidi, have been reportedly kidnapped.
The development was disclosed on Friday in a statement issued by the Director of Communications, Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Monalisa Chinda.
According to the statement, families of the actors had raised the alarm over the whereabouts of the duo after a film production at Ozalla Town, Enugu State.
The statement added that the incident has increased fear amongst members of the AGN regarding the safety of actors filming across the country.
The statement reads, “The two members were suspected of having been kidnapped, which has increased fear amongst members about the safety of actors filming in the country."
Because of this sad development, the National President of the Guild, Ejezie Emeka Rollas, has instructed all actors to avoid going to the outskirts of cities to film unless full security cover is provided to ensure their safety.
The AGN president, who also expressed shock at the development, called on security agencies to speed up investigations in a bid to rescue the actors unhurt.
