Kidnappers finally release abducted Nollywood actors, Cynthia Okereke, Clemson Cornel


Two Nollywood actors, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, recently abducted in Enugu State have been released.

The Actors Guild of Nigeria has confirmed their release, in a statement signed by its Director of Communication, Monalisa Chinda Coker.

Monalisa said the kidnappers released the actors because they were “touched by the spirit of God.”

The Guild urged actors to ensure that adequate security was in place while on movie sets.

The statement reads partly: “This is to inform the public that the kidnapped actors, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, have been released, unhurt. The elated National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ejezie Rollas, announced their release by the abductors who were touched by spirit of God to set them free and unharmed.
