Special Assistant to Governor Rochas Okorocha on Public Affairs, Nkiru Sylvanus, was, yesterday, kidnapped in Owerri, the Imo State capital. The Nollywood actress, who was kidnapped at 2.30pm, was only recently re-deployed from the state Liaison Office in Lagos.
She was reportedly abducted close to the famous Concord Hotel, Owerri, in the company of some of her friends.
Though details of the incident were still sketchy at press time, it was learnt that the abductors have established contact with her family and have demanded a ransom of N100 million.
The incident could not be confirmed as repeated calls made to the mobile phone of State Commisioner of Information, Chinedu Offor, proved futile.
State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Vitalis Onugu, could also not be reached for comments as his mobile phone could not be reached.
