Cynthia Okereke, the Nollywood actress, has finally spoken about her abduction and ordeal in kidnapper’s den.
Okereke and Clemson Cornel, her colleague, were reported missing last Friday when they went for a movie shoot at Ozalla Town in Enugu state.
Their abduction had elicited concerns among Nigerians — including celebrities.
But on Wednesday, the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) announced that they had regained their freedom.
In a now-viral video, Okereke said she was without food and water for a week.
She also thanked family members, friends, and well-wishers who facilitated her release from her abductors.
“God is a faithful God. I have every cause to say hallelujah in the land of the living. I didn’t know that I have people and friends. To God be the glory for all of you, your efforts your prayers, your encouragement, mama Cynthia Okereke alive,” she said.
“I will act for you people and continue to be acting for you people. For good one week, I was there no water no food but today I say God to you be all the glory.”
Emeka Rollas, the AGN president, had earlier revealed that the abductors established contact with the actors’ families to demand $100,000 in ransom payment.
He later disclosed that they were mocked by the abductors after offering N1.2 million instead.
