The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) announced their release on Wednesday night in a statement signed by its spokesperson Monalisa Chinda-Coker.
While the AGN did not state in what condition the two were released, Monalisa said in the statement that the guild “has arranged for medical checks and psychological support for the victims.”
Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, aka Agbogidi, were reported missing on Thursday when they did not return home from a film location in Ozalla Town, Enugu State.
Their abductors contacted their families on Saturday to demand $100,000 as ransom.
An offer of N1.2million as ransom was rebuffed by the kidnappers according to AGN president Emeka Rollas.
