Two Nollywood actors, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, as of late abducted in Enugu State have been released.
The Actors Guild of Nigeria has affirmed 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 soul of God.”
The Guild encouraged actors to ensure that sufficient security was set up while on film 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.
“The guild has arranged for medical checks and psychological support for the victims.
“He urged members to be security conscious on and off movie sets and always take precautionary measures on their security at all times.”
Okereke and Agbodigidi were kidnapped last week in Enugu State.
The kidnappers had requested a ransom of $100,000.
