Some Nigerians have criticized Nollywood actress, Monalisa Chinda, for exposing her kidnapped colleagues, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel to danger.
Naija News reports that the kidnappers of the two veteran actors demanded a ransom of a hundred thousand dollars.
The Director of Communications of the Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Monalisa, in a post shared on Instagram, said she doesn’t understand why people would think, that Nollywood actors have money, considering the little amount of money of fees they receive.
While expressing shock at the $100k, demanded by the kidnappers, Monalisa added that the numbers used to communicate with the actors in captivity can easily be traced.
