While updating Nigerians, national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Emeka Rollas has said about N1.2 million has been raised to free veteran actors Cnythia Okereke and Clemson Cornell.
Emeka Rollas who recently said AGN can’t set aside funds for abducted actors, revealed in a video on Instagram that the abductors mocked him when he told them that N1.2 million has been raised out of the $100k demanded. 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.”
The actors were reported missing after their family members confirmed they did not come back from a film location at Ozalla Town, Enugu State.
