Nkem Owoh Kidnapped

Nkem Owoh

Yesterday, Segun Arinze, President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria announced that Nkem Owoh has been kidnapped. Mr. Owoh is one of the top Nollywood actors mainly due to his role in the blockbuster movie ‘Osuofia’. He was kidnapped along the Enugu – PortHarcourt Expressway and his kidnappers have reportedly demanded a 15 million naira ransom.

This is truly a disappointing development. Just a few months ago, another veteren Nigerian actor, Pete Edochie was kidnapped and subsequently released.
We pray Nkem Owoh is released unharmed soon.

    Why are they kidnapping these innocent & hard working Nigerians. Pls you kidnapers, I’ll highly appreciate it if you can kidnap the Imo state governor and all members of his family because he is a disgrace to the state. he is from isiala mbano but all the roads in mbano are patetic not to talk of owerri the capital. All he is doing is accumulating wealth for himself, what a shame.

  • Aluta November 10, 2009 at 10:52 am

    Bella, this is plagiarism! Why not mention the newspaper you got it from e.g. NEXT? I don’t think you are a qualified journalist. It is unprofessional although the internet is not regulated.

  • Ini November 10, 2009 at 10:56 am

    Bella, this is plagiarism!

  • cynthia November 10, 2009 at 11:15 am

    What is wrong with these people? Can’t Africa move forwards?? Why are they seeing kidnapping top stars as a means to make money? I am utterly disgusted and incredibly saddened. I hope he is found safe and sound.

  • joey crack November 10, 2009 at 11:35 am

    We take accusations of plaigarism very seriously.
    That is why we will respond.
    The AGN released a statement and formally announced this yesterday and all news sources who were interested had access to the information. In terms of the reference to the Pete Edochie incident, it does not take a Pulitzer Prize to note that it is relevant to reference an extremely similar recent incident. If Bella Naija gets information from a source, we state so clearly.

  • Ini November 10, 2009 at 12:46 pm

    I don’t agree with you Bella. You should have written it differently because it looked as if you just copied Modern Ghana or NEXT. Modern Ghana published its version before NEXT. NEXT did not put a by-line so you should not have written by Bella.

    If I were you. I would have written the same story in a totally different way, that’s all. Read the three short articles including yours and still insist that you were right?

  • omo urhobo November 10, 2009 at 12:55 pm

    Aluta that was very rude and crude of you..If you wanted to state that it was plagarism why not do so must you say she is not qualified n all that unnecessary stuff?…she deserves an apology!
    on this though, I totally agree that these kidnappers are just lazy people and to you who said why not kidnap a bank CEO are you saying you support kidnapping?

  • Mark November 10, 2009 at 1:51 pm

    Just love the way she responded to you. Bella you are the new breed of Nigerians we need. So because Next is online first, you think the own they story? They are getting jealous of all the attention a young girl with a simple blog is getting worldwide

  • joy November 10, 2009 at 2:45 pm

    It is better for south east governors do somethings about these kidnaping thing, becos if other states in nigeria leave their state to be turn in to state of kidnap nobody we stay in nigeria. nonses

  • silkywave November 10, 2009 at 3:38 pm

    Plsssssssssssssssssssssssss… if you dnt have any comment to make.. then close the website!!!
    God bless you Bella.. This website gives me an exciting break from work.
    I pray Nkem Owoh comes out save. I’m sure he will crack them up and they will release him. AMEN!! :)

  • EmmanF November 10, 2009 at 3:53 pm

    Why this nonesense, the poor man should be left alone, these kidnappers are very stupid and bunch of fools, they should go after the politicians that have stolen our money rather than the actors and actresses.

  • Jay November 10, 2009 at 4:06 pm

    God bless you, Bella!

  • chinaka November 10, 2009 at 5:02 pm

    they are not militants they are just jobless people with no fear for life terrorizing people. May God protect us from them.

  • Kpakpando November 10, 2009 at 6:13 pm

    Someone was kidnapped and you’re here talking about how she should right. You never start.

  • Kpakpando November 10, 2009 at 6:17 pm

    Ehm, if that’s the case, Anambra government should be kidnapped first, they’re the biggest disgrace in the whole South East… but we all know why they won’t get kidnapped. Nothing happens like this without the knowledge (most times the sanction) of these greedy bastards called government officials.

  • MiaJadore November 10, 2009 at 6:29 pm

    Ini, the source was sited in the line “Segun Arinze, President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria announced…” There was an “Announcement”, and that is how Next, Ghana, Bella and others got the information. Ini hmmm, does everyone with that name have… never mind.

  • Ajewole Tunde November 10, 2009 at 6:47 pm

    Please leave the poor man alone o.
    He has no dollar to cough out ooo.

  • Umunna Anthony November 10, 2009 at 8:44 pm

    Kidnapping Nkem Owoh is a sacrilage. These kidnappers will turn to kidnap themselves one day. May they never laugh in their lives again. If kidnapping has got to Nkem Owoh, then the story has finished because he will act a movie with them in the junggle. Good enough, he does not have money to give them . Infact, their trap just caught a monitor lizard.

  • wow! November 10, 2009 at 9:36 pm

    Hahahahahaha! U are real funny!

  • Nneka November 11, 2009 at 3:06 am

    militants = jobless people…….at least for the most part. These ones in the Nkem’s case are just a bunch of bloody nicumpoos!

  • Ugochi November 11, 2009 at 3:26 am

    It is a huge shame.In fact it is a disaster. There is absolutely no reason for kidnapping Nkem Owoh. He works hard for his money. God will keep him safe

  • satz November 12, 2009 at 11:09 am

    oh no! Even here in Cameroon, we would prefer that someone else be harmed and Nkem spared. and to think that such usesless men as those behind this act may not understand the worth of the man they are holding!! I swear that if a hair is touched on Nkem’s head, i shall personally get behind those guys, then the world would know me for the first time!

  • Jamido November 18, 2009 at 1:41 pm

    Hi Guys, what is going on in Nigeria is becomming an out of control situation and a matter of regret for being a Nigerian. Everywhere we go it is a problem to say what country you come from.
    There is no excuse for a form of wrong doing as there will always be a retributive justice at some point.
    I just do get it why some elements in Nigeria do not have respect for themselves or for that matter a national pride.

    Kidnapping has now become another fad in Nigeria, fist it was people from other countries now they have turned on their own brothers and sisters what a shame.

    Every year the world corruption watch moves Nigeria to a highier level in crime dictionary this is a bad thing for the future of the country that prides its self as the giant of Africa. In my opinion Nigerians should be ashamed to call themselves giant unless in crime otherwise they should known as LEPERS OF AFRICA.

  • Elvan November 19, 2009 at 2:13 pm

    This is sad and possible big shame to this nation Ngieria. Kidnapping is a form of todays business to most ibo Nigerians. Ibos are known for criminal activities. From Drug trade, to human ritutial, fake churches, 419 Armed robberies and etc. Shame on the ibos for kidnapping Nkem.

  • Xris November 20, 2009 at 3:39 am

    Y do u speak like a child? Wat makes u think d kidnappers r of ibo tribe? Ibos r d most hard workin n industrious people in dis country. Its only lazy people dat will do such. My sympathy though to osofia n pity for Nigeria…

  • Agbo chinonso November 20, 2009 at 10:05 am

    Nigerians, what can we do to eradicate kidnappers in nigeria,it becoming too much,leading many people to heart ached, rechedness,death. I think the best solution is to kill any kidnappers straight when they are cut to avoid concurrence of this evil habit in our country. I pray that nkem owoh will be released safely please!please!!please!!!

  • nonso November 20, 2009 at 10:44 am

    WHY DO PPL LIKE THIS,?SOME LIKE NKEM.We NIGERIANS ARE PROUD OF HIM ,HE IS A REALLY BLESSED ACTOR…PPL R WICKED..HE WILL BE RELEASED WE PRAY FOR THAT.

  • EVELYN .O November 20, 2009 at 7:31 pm

    ummmmmmmmmm!

  • ERUANGA OISE DANIEL November 25, 2009 at 10:51 am

    In recent months, a segment of the Nigerian society has been quarantined by the growing scourge of kidnappings for ransom. Nightlife that had already been hard hit by the menace of armed robbery and the banning of Okada has taken a further pounding as a result. The well to do now stay indoors and when they do venture outside they do so incognito for fear of being kidnapped. The South-south and south-east zones of the country have been particularly hit hard. Over the years, foreign oil companies in the country have had to deal with the kidnappings of their workers for ransom. For some moot reasons, some Nigerians felt this was a problem for the not too popular oil companies to deal with, especially those who saw the kidnappings as representing crude efforts to redistribute the proceeds of oil exploration in the region. Now this very deadly business that started in the Niger Delta is spreading its tentacles to other parts of the country, fuelled by government neglect, corruption, inefficient and corrupt Police Force, greed, unemployment and the battering of other sources of illicit income like 419 by the global economic meltdown.

    At one stage during the evolution of this monster called kidnapping, the practitioners kidnapped mainly the rich or members of their families because they had the millions to pay as ransom and many of them paid. A former senior official of the oil industry during Obasanjo’s government who hails from the Niger Delta reportedly paid N500 million to secure the release of his wife after the kidnappers threatened to take turns raping her. Some people may not feel sorry for this individual because of perceived opinions as to how he got the N500 million in the first place. Whatever the validity of this view vis-à-vis the kidnapping, it looks like the dynamics of the trade is changing and changing very quickly.

    The rich and foreign oil industry workers who were the initial victims of kidnappings have implemented security measures to protect themselves, thereby making it harder for the kidnappers to seize their potential victims. The state and federal governments are even providing some of them with more police and military protection at the expense of ordinary Nigerians. But the kidnappers are not about to give up on this lucrative business. They have re-tooled and in some cases re-engineered their modus operandi.

    The kidnappers have now expanded the sources for their “supplies” They are no longer restricting themselves to finding their victims from the groups of expatriates or rich and famous. It looks like they are prepared to unleash a pandemic of kidnappings by targeting anyone with a few bucks to pay and this is where it becomes very scary. Most of the kidnappings we hear about often involve demands for ransom in the millions but several kidnappings occur daily in which the kidnappers are demanding just enough money to buy booze, pay their rent and replenish their tools of the trade. Often times these stories are not reported to the police or the press due to the relatively small amounts involved and the fear and or mistrust of the police. Police authorities in the South-East zone have confirmed that some people have been kidnapped for as little as N20,000.00 (http://odili.net/news/source/2009/jun/6/302.html).

    Following the rash of kidnappings that I have occurred in Benin City in the last few months I discussed the issue with a few people this weekend and they were very clear in expressing their concerns that sooner or later the parents and family members of those in the Diaspora would soon become targets. I told some of them that their fears were belated because the brother of Joseph Yobo of Everton Football Club in England was kidnapped and it cost him a fortune to secure his release. Let me state unequivocally that I am not insinuating nor do I believe that the parents and family members of those in the Diaspora deserve or are entitled to any more attention regarding this issue as are Nigerians at home. I have only mentioned members of this class because of their economic attractiveness to the kidnappers.

    The states and federal government would want the Nigerian people to believe they are clearly worried about this menace judging by their legislative efforts. State governments, particularly in the south east, have responded to this wave of kidnappings by passing new criminal laws (although I suspect the competence of states to pass criminal laws in Nigeria will be challenged at some point), with some imposing the death penalty for the offence. This knee-jerk reaction to the problem of kidnapping is typical of governance in Nigeria. Governments continue to chase shadows while ignoring the substantive issues of law enforcement, corruption and the desperation and restlessness of millions of young men and women with no sources of livelihood and no hope for a better tomorrow. State governments have passed new laws criminalizing kidnapping as if it is a new type of offence – kidnapping has been a criminal offence in Nigeria since the colonial era. I understand the federal government is also considering a law that would impose stiffer punishments for kidnapping.

    I dare to say that the above measures will not work because they do not address the root causes of the problem. Too often in Nigeria, the government believes it can isolate a particular problem and deal with it successfully. This approach often fails because it treats the symptom of a disease as the disease itself. In the Nigerian context, kidnapping is not the disease. It is a symptom of the abysmal decadence that has enveloped the country. It is a symptom of the recklessness and abandonment with which successive governments have handled the issue of training and employment. It is a symptom of the greed and corruption that have brought the country to its knees. It is a reminder of the brutal techniques employed by electioneering politicians who armed their supporters with guns and ammunitions in order to realize their “do or die” ambitions of “winning” elections at all costs. Most of all, it is the BIGGEST symptom of a police force whose morale and professionalism have been devastated by low pay, outdated equipment and poor working conditions to the extent that they have become willing accomplices of armed robbers and kidnappers. These are some of the real causes of kidnappings in Nigeria. Sadly, there are no policies in place to deal with these problems and there is little or no reason to believe that the political will to put the policies in place will arrive soon.

    You cannot deal with the problem of kidnapping as a crime in Nigeria while ignoring the many politicians who have looted the country of billions, the very money meant to create employment for some of the kidnappers. The politicians looted these billions without suffering any sanctions. You cannot treat kidnapping as an offense when you have a police force that is not equipped to deal with kidnapping and some will argue are conspiring with the kidnappers. You cannot win the fight against kidnappers and kidnapping in a society where government’s only responsibility to the poor and unemployed citizenry is reduced to promises that are never kept and statements of intentions that are ignored the moment after the speeches are delivered. You cannot say you want to eliminate or reduce kidnappings in the country when each new day brings forth stories of government officials embezzling billions from the nation’s coffers, the surfacing of billionaires from nowhere and millions being found in bank accounts belonging to government cooks. You cannot say you want to deal with kidnapping while lacking the willingness to deal with the bank officials who collude with the kidnappers to move their ransom payments through the banking system. You cannot be serious about dealing with kidnapping in a society where the only measure of success is money, with the source of such wealth being irrelevant.

    The above is a circumscribed elucidation of the background in which the states and federal government are attempting to eradicate or reduce kidnapping in Nigeria. I invite Nigerians to judge for themselves what they think the outcome would be. For decades, our society has cultivated the environment for the fertilization of this menace. It has now been fertilized, hatched and is growing into a gargantuan monster. I am afraid, the sad stories and extortions associated with it may touch many more innocent lives and families before we start to see it for what it is: kidnapping is a symptom of a bigger problem that can only be solved through a holistic approach to the problems of Nigeria.

    Before anyone goes away thinking he or she is too secured to be kidnapped, permit me to remind you of the story of Aldo Moro, one of the longest serving Italian Prime Minister. He was kidnapped in Rome in March 1978 on his way to the Parliament after five of his bodyguards had been killed. He was found dead about two months later. Not even the offer by then Pope Paul VI to exchange himself for Aldo Moro could save the politician’s life. The point of this example is to drive home the point that nobody should safe from kidnapping because nobody is. save

  • Oge November 26, 2009 at 8:53 am

    I am so embarrassed with this news of kidnapping in a nation I am so proud of. How did the people of Nigeria allow this new trend of kidnapping escalate this far? The government of the federal republic is a big disgrace to allow the Niger delta crisis eat deep to give birth to a new strain of kidnapping. I myself is afraid to come home before I get kidnapped. This means I would loose all my friends and extended families that cannot join me here, because thesame country is so corrupt that they don’t get approved for visas, to the smallest countries that have nothing like we do, we need to go through hell to get issued visas. And those who blame the Ibos, is this going to be a tribal blame now? Remember Nkem is also Ibo! Why have n’t you bury the hatchet and move on than pointing accusing fingers on a tribe. Remember that criminals are more united than we ordinary people. We don’t know what tribes are involved so we should not take the subject away from what it is.
    Nigeria is a forgone country for people like us in the diaspora, our luggages get robbed even before we set our foot into Lagos, and that is after we have gone through the discrimination we face in countries we transit from because of our passport. Talk of getting into the country and get robbed, kidnapped and killed. Blacks from other part of Africa are happy to go home, look at Ghana, is it not a shame to Nigerians, that a country like Ghana can take over in everything, from safety to economy to our movies. It was because someone like J.K Rawlings took the step in eliminating the old generals. Nigeria need to do thesame. If they are left alone, Nigeria would be a no go country in the near future.

  • chuks November 27, 2009 at 6:11 pm

    These area boys need to be caught and strung up. Its crazy how they keep kidnapping the movie stars, imagine what its like for regular folk. They all need Jesus.

  • Adaora December 22, 2009 at 11:40 pm

    What do you expect in a countary where there is no law. This is why Nigeria will never grow up, moreover, why Osuofia, why not those people sitting on top with empty heads.
    Kidnappers, please leave innocent people alone, you know where your shares are

  • Jay Oz December 24, 2009 at 4:52 am

    Nigeria problem is created by Nigerians– we worship money, we give respectable positions to questionable characters, we hail corruption and we uphold injustice. I cry for Nigeria– day by day investors are pulling out their investments and the few sons and daughters of the soil who wanted to invest in Nigeria to employ our sons and daughters are being chased away by kidnappers and Armed Robbers. People in authority are only concerned about their pockets. Police are busy looking for bribes and renting their weapons to Robbers. It is hard to believe that over 80% of Nigerians are either Christians or Moslems– daily they yell through their church and mosque loud speakers calling the name of God and Allah in vain. If only we practice what we learn in churches and Mosques Nigeria would have been heaven on earth. Compare Nigeria and Ghana– President Obama visited Ghana and refused to step into Nigeria due to corruption– shame on all of us. Few years back we were saying “Ghana must go” we even had a bag still called Ghana must go; today what is happening, Nigerians are moving to Ghana for greener pasture– of course, why not, there is constant power supply, at least police do their duties and their leaders are held accountable. Thanks to Jerry Lawrence– We need a revolution in Nigeria—My people we need to take back our country from these Rapist, Robbers and Murderers. Arise my fellow country people and fight for your right– right to peace and justice, right to freedom, right to security and right for a better future.

  • Zikwe December 24, 2009 at 11:09 am

    I am from America and would like to donate my newly found money from some one who died and left me his millions as was told to me in a email I randomly received from someone in Nigeria I have never met. I After I give this very generous person my name, address and bank account information I was promised a huge sum of money which I have pledged in it’s entirety for the release of Nkem Owoh. God save the Queen!!!

    Nkem Owoh is a very nice actor of Noolywood, including Pete Edochie so I
    Don’t seem why some kidnappers will kidnapp such a nice actors like them
    please I want to geoge the kidnappers beacuse the don’t know what the are
    doing, they even use to watch their movie and they really enjoyed it, so I am
    disappointed in them. make them worry una for me ooooooooo.
