Yeah, I know I am probably the last blogger publishing this story *covers face*…you must have heard by now, the rampant increase in abduction in Nigeria. Last week, it was the mother of the finance minister, Okonjo Iweala that was kidnapped; now it is Nollywood’s actress Nkiru Syvalnus…God knows who the next person would be.
The Nollywood actress, Nkiru Sylvanus was abducted in Owerri, Imo state capital alongside her personal assistant on Sunday.
There are reports that her abductors are demanding N100m.
Anyways, the Imo state government has promised to give a ‘substantial reward to anyone with useful information on Nkiru Sylvanus’ whereabouts’.
In an official statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Chinedu Offor, it was disclosed that all security agencies in the state are doing everything possible to get Nkiru back safely.
The statement further read “The kidnappers have made contact with certain government officials. Government will offer a substantial reward to anyone with useful information about her whereabouts”.
So, if you have any ‘helpful’ information, it’s best you speak up.
Also, a paricular Ibo group in a statement released today, urged the Imo state state government to ensure that the actress was rescued was alive/safely.
