UPDATE: AGN President Reveals How Kidnappers Mocked Him & His Colleagues For Raising N1.2m Instead Of $100,000 Ransom

The Nigerian film industry is now a subject of mockery for kidnappers as they could raise only N1.2m to secure the release of their two colleagues, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, who had been abducted since last week.

This was disclosed by the President, Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, who is spearheading the ransom payment.

The kidnappers seem to have been used to huge millions they have been getting from families of other victims, with such running into N50m and even N100m at times.

Rollas recalled his discussion with the kidnappers on the phone:

“Good morning, esteemed colleagues. This is to brief you about the happenings over five days now on our two colleagues abducted a few days back. The situation still remains the same but we are believing God to do His miracles and wonders at this point in time.

“Yesterday, while talking to the abductors, we were trying to explain to them that we were putting some funds together, we were contributing. We said that we had about N1.2 million. And they started laughing at us.

“They started mocking us and saying ‘all those your celebrities posting on Instagram, how much have they contributed?’ Immediately, it got to me that these people are watching us. It is not the best time to circulate this information on Instagram.

“Therefore, we have dedicated an account, the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Enugu chapter, Zenith Bank for us to make little contributions. I urge all of us to see to it that we make these contributions because we do not know who will be in this kind of situation.

“But we pray to God that none of us will have this kind of experience. I want to thank all of you for your calls, all your advice, and all your contributions, knowing that it is our own problem. Thank you. God bless you.”
