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.
