President of the Actors Guild Of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas says the abductors of kidnapped actors mocked the union when he told them they had raised about ₦1.2 million in ransom payment.
Rollas made the revelation in a video while giving an update on the missing actors.
He said the kidnappers also made fun of the guild while requesting celebrities who shared the incident on Instagram to also make their own contributions.
The Enugu police subsequently launched an investigation into the matter and recovered a vehicle belonging to Okereke from where it was said to have been abandoned on the highway.
Some individuals who turned out to be the abductors of the missing actors established contact with their families to demand $100,000 in ransom payment.
In the video, Rollas also disclosed that the situation in the case remains the same.
He said efforts are still in progress to raise more funds and secure the release of the abducted.

“The situation still remains the same. Yesterday while talking to the abductors, we tried to explain to them that we were putting some funds together and contributing. We told them we had about ₦1.2 million,” he said.

“They started laughing at us and mocking us. They said all those celebrities posting us on Instagram, why haven’t they contributed? It immediately got to me that these people are watching us.
It’s not the best time for us to begin to circulate this information on Instagram. We have dedicated an account, the AGN Enugu account number, for us to make the contributions. I urge us to see to it that we contribute.
We do not know who will be in this kind of situation again and we pray that none will. I thank you all for the calls and all the advice.”
Okereke and Cornel were reported missing last Friday. Their family members confirmed that they had yet to return from the movie set they went to at Ozalla Town in Enugu state.
