Following the Kidnap of Nollywood actress and Special Assistant on Public Affairs to Imo State Governor, Miss Nkiru Sylvanus, South East Chapter of the Actors Guild of Nigeria staged a peaceful protest in Owerri the state capital condemning the act and calling out to the kidnappers to release their colleague.
Led by the South East Vice Chaiman of the Guild, Iyke Ezenagu, members of the Association marched to the Government House where they called on the state government and other South East governors to provide adequate security for all actors in the region to enable them do their duties accordingly without fear of kidnap.
They however expressed displeasure over the spate of kidnapping of their members in the South East as Nkiru Sylvanus’s case is not the first of its kind.
However while addressing journalists earlier in the Government House, after the security council meeting, the Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha disclosed that the state government in conjunction with all the security operatives in the state are doing everything possible to rescue the light skinned actress alive as well as other people who have been abducted in the state.
Okorocha further reiterated his administration’s resolve to ensure a crime and kidnap free Yuletide for all Imo state residents.
