Dokubo wrote: “Where will we turn if not the public using our social media platforms? Well…Finally, the kidnappers have made their demands. They want money! 100k US dollars! From where? Unfortunately, they misjudged the financial status of the actors they kidnapped! And think that as it is in the movies, that’s how it is in real life. What a life!”
She further stated: “I am pained because I know these two personally, have worked with them and I know the truth of how it is with them. Just been asking myself one question all day, How much does an average actor make in Nigeria?”
Both actors are popular for roles they have played in various Nollywood movies. Cynthia Okereke has featured in movies like “A fool at 40” , “King “Jaja of Opobo“, and “Osuofia in London“, which shut her to limelight, while Cornel Clemson has acted in movies like “Heaven after Hell“, “Stay Dead” and “Naked Kingdom” among others.
