Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, aka Agbogidi, two prominent Nollywood actors and members of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), have reportedly been kidnapped.
AGN’s Director of Communications, Monalisa Chinda, announced the news in a statement made available on Friday.
According to Ms Chinda’s statement, the actors were reported missing after their family members confirmed they did not return from a film location in Ozalla Town, Enugu state.
