The National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Emeka Rollas has reportedly been mocked by the abductors of the two Nollywood actors, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornell over the ransom raised thus far.
The abductors mocked him on Monday, August 1, when he told them that N1.2 million has been raised rather than the $100,000 demanded.
Rollas stated that the kidnappers ordered other Nollywood stars to contribute towards paying the $100,000 ransom.
He said, “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.”
It would be recalled that Yvonne Jegede had said that the ugly incidence is really a scary situation. She also confirmed that no statement has been made by the Nigerian police or any government official.
“This is actually scary to be honest. God help us. The insecurity in this country is a complete mess, and till now no statement from the police or government addressing this issue. As I type this I have shivers down my spine. I just pray Nigeria doesn’t happen to us,” she wrote.
