“The numbers used to communicate with them can easily be traced” – Actress, Monalisa Chinda
Nollywood actress, Monalisa Chinda has revealed that the numbers used to communicate with her kidnapped colleagues can easily be traced.
Monalisa, who is the Director of Communications of the Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN), took to Instagram to question the kidnap of actress Cynthia Okereke and actor Clemson Cornel after they didn’t return home from a movie location.
The kidnappers have demanded ransom of $100k.
Expressing shock over the amount demanded by the kidnappers, Monalisa said she doesn’t understand why anyone would think Nollywood actors have such money.
She added that the numbers used to communicate with the actors in captivity can easily be traced.
Recall that Isa Pantami, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy in Nigeria, had directed that all SIM cards should be linked to their owners’ National Identification Numbers (NIN) to tackle insecurity in the country.
Phone lines not linked to owners’ NIN were barred from making calls earlier this year.
