Nollywood actress Nkiru Sylvanus has reportedly been kidnapped in Owerri, Imo State along with her personal assistant this morning, December 16, 2012.
Sylvanus, who is the Special Assistant on public affairs to the state governor was last seen on the set of a movie last night in Owerri. She was kidnapped while she was in her house.
The story was confirmed by Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN) President Ibinabo Fiberisima.
‘We are trying to liaise with her state government to find a solution to it. It’s unfortunate that people can do things like this to people who make them happy‘, the AGN President lamented.
Ibinabo has also told Nigerians to pray for the fair-skinned actress. ‘Please Nigerians pray for her!‘.
Her abductors are reportedly demanding a sum of N100m for her release. We could not readily confirm this as at the time of this report.
