Nollywood star, Nkiru set free

Nkiru Sylvanus, the Nollywood actress and Special Assistant to Imo State governor on Public Affairs, who was kidnapped last Sunday by unknown gunmen, has regained her freedom.

Nkiru Sylvanus: freed

Nkiru was abducted, while returning from a location, where she had gone to shoot a film.

While she was still being held, her captors demanded a N100 million ransom.
It was not certain last night if any ransom was paid for her release.

However, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Adisa Bolante, confirmed Sylvanus’s release and said 16 persons have been arrested in connection with the abduction.

The state Governor, Rochas Okorocha, while reacting to the incident, expressed dismay over the kidnap of his aide, saying this was why he banned sirens and vehicles with tinted glasses in the state.

  • Sentiments apart. What actually qualified this girl to be a special assistance to a state governor ? Is it just her look or any other deserving quality/qualification in public affairs management ? In this country anything goes.

  • Frankly speaking, this is why Nigeria as a country is far from improvement. In all these kidnaps, what efforts are the Federal Government putting in place to suppress it? If people like the mother of a federal minister was kidnapped and a ransom was paid for her release, between this Nollywood actress and us, you then is safe?

    Lately, this kidnapping syndrome has become a norm in the society. Jobless youths have resorted to this evil to survive. How do we keep these minds positively engaged? Some decided to Okada business, and subsequently the government took the privileged of banning Okada. This statement is not to promote evil, but how then are these youths (graduates/illiterates alike) going to survive, or make a living in the country? These ignorant youths have foolishly taken the unscrupulous route to survival.

    Nigeria is a failed situation.
