Actors Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, popularly known as Agbogidi, have been reported missing.

The actors were reported missing after their family members confirmed they did not come back from a film location at Ozalla Town, Enugu State.

According to the statement, the current assumption, is that they have been abducted, given the spate of kidnappings in the past months.

“In view of this sad development, the national president of the guild, Ejezie Emeka Rollas has instructed all actors to avoid going to outskirts of cities to film except full security cover is provided to ensure their safety.

“The National President is shocked over this ugly incident and urged the security agencies to speed up investigations that would lead to their safe rescue.

“He equally appeals to all members to pray for the safe return of the thespians.”
