The National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Emeka Rollas has given an update on the kidnap of top Nollywood actors, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel.

Speaking with journalists on Monday, Emeka Rollas said they have raised N1.2 million against the $100,000 demanded by the abductors.

The AGN president said the kidnappers mocked him and other colleagues, adding that they cannot afford the huge ramson.

Rollas added that the kidnappers ordered other celebrities posting their moments on Instagram to contribute to 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, and 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.”
