Nkiru Slyvanus: Police arrest 16 suspects

•Actors Guild demands her immediate release

From GEORGE ONYEJIUWA, Owerri

Imo State Police Command yesterday said it has arrested 16 suspects in connection with the kidnapping of Nollywood actress and Special Assistant to the State Governor on Public Affairs, Nkiru Sylvanus. The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr. Vitalis Onugu (DSP), disclosed that the suspects were arrested in a raid of suspected kidnappers’ dens in the forest, adding that they were already assisting the police in its investigation.

Meanwhile, the state government has directed security agencies to arrest any unauthorised person found using siren and vehicles with tinted glasses. Rising from a security council meeting, the state Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, said the renewed war against unauthorised use of siren and tinted glasses was part of the stringent measures adopted by the council to checkmate crime in the state, especially during the Yuletide.

Also, members of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Southeast Zone, demanded the immediate release of the actress. Members of the actors’ body, led by its National Vice President, Southeast, Ikechukwu Ezenagu, a legal practitioner, barricaded the entrance of Government House displaying placards with various inscriptions which include, “Southeast governors give Nollywood actors security,” “Insecurity is the bane of investment in the Southeast,” “Turn away from kidnapping and join Nollywood,” among others.

    Nollywood actors hire security !!!
    No free lunch even in free town .

  5. Hacker December 20, 2012 at 6:24 am

    Abeg make una live rochase even if she is her girl friend is not ur biz. all we need is a way of this kidnapping act.

  6. Onyeigbo December 20, 2012 at 7:10 am

    When people comment about this girl working with rochas.What is wrong for her working with him.A lot of Nigerians are blind and dumb that it irritates.A lot of actors become politicians in other part of the world.If she has requirements,why not.Is it because all of you know when she started.A prophet is not popular in his land.If it’s yoruba people,they will respect her for trying to work hard.What i’m against is the security exposing their investigation.They should keep quiet until they find her.Someone life is in danger here.

    • Say you, Say me December 20, 2012 at 7:36 am

      @Onyeigbo. You have said it all. People are just irritating with the comments they post. And like Hacker rightly said, what has her being his girlfriend got to do with anything.

  7. emmy December 20, 2012 at 9:05 am

    @ojimx, @gaddafi and @Don M, may your sisters and daughters be kidnapped and raped, amen.

  8. Rogers December 20, 2012 at 11:20 am

    Wen rochas hv not become the governor,he is a lawless fellow that even move with power bike with thugs,it is now he released all those things were bad.nonsense….

  9. Nnanna December 20, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    Rogers, may God forgive u.

  10. Nnanna December 20, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    @Rogers: may God forgive u for insulting Rochas.

  11. Chekwube December 20, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    How easy it’s to deceive a whole State,people forget so easily,when Ohakim was in power,he was wanted out with promises of a better Imo State without kidnappers and other vices but what have we got today looks like it’s getting worse by the day,Politicians with their tricks and antics to win and gain power……..Instead of tackling the challenges of our time we choose to put the blame on somebody/other,Politics being a dirty game it’s,Politicians can do anything to discredit their opponents in order to win an election.

  12. emeka December 20, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    @Nnenna,r u doubtin Rogers,Rochas was a lawless person wen he had nt become Governor.Rochas is a failure.

  13. guyman December 20, 2012 at 2:55 pm

    @emeka u ar a big idiot

  14. Alain Smith December 20, 2012 at 4:33 pm

    Why is this happening in Nigeria, some may say it is development , but why must Nigeria develop only in crime activities, other third world countries are developing in science, infrastructure, and IT , You can imagine it is only in Nigeria that you still have power failure this gives room for the hoodlums to operate.
    What is happening in Nigeria, this is a country where church is the other of the day, every one talks of God, Nigerians even takes churches to Muslim countries,. Dose it mean that God is not hearing the cry of Nigeria or what. This Dec now crusade will be every where . I CHALLENGE ALL THE GOS TO COME TOGETHER AND FAST FOR THIS COUNTRY, IF NOTHING IS DONE WE ALL WORSHIP IDOLS, COS OUR FORE FATHER WHO WORSHIPED IDOLS NEVER NEW ANY THING LIKE KIDNAPPING, CORRUPTION IN GOVT, AND OTHERS

  15. Rogers December 20, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    @ Nnana,God will forgive me, if i said the wrong thing against my Governor..u don’t know him more than me,u re ordinary priase singer,that cannot even touch the sand from his foot..I spent 9yrs in government house owerri as a senior civil servant,he came in here in UK and start bragging of constructing general hospitals,now I came in naija few days ago I wept for Imo state…udenwa is a silent achiever…who doesn’t make too much noise..let him concentrates and do more and talk less….

    • Joel Nwosu December 21, 2012 at 7:50 am

      Narrow minded Rogers, May God forgive you as Nnana said. Who gives a damn where you are or where you have worked. Have you been to Abia State and see what the man there is doing? Now tell me what is wrong if Nkiru is offered a political appointment in Imo State? Is United Kingdom your place of origin? Raw Asylum seeker like you.

      • bighead December 21, 2012 at 4:11 pm

        Abia state governor expelled Imo indigines in their government house, i see everything wrong about Nkiru working with Rochas.

        • Joel Nwosu December 21, 2012 at 10:04 pm

          Bighead, Nkiru’s appointment is political. If your governor thinks she is too pretty to be in his cabinet let it be. Don’t forget Abia and Imo are sisters as I think Theo has no morals, a big disgrace to Igbo people.

  16. pallisy December 20, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    if it’s an actor-turned politician,fine&good. an actress-turned politician equals harlot and all oda unholy names. som pple are nincompoops!!!

  17. ISREALDO December 21, 2012 at 2:38 am

    NA WAOOO OOH IGBOLAND U PEOPLE HAVE FORGOTTEN THE PLIGHT OF THE ELDERLY PEOPLE IN YOUR MIDST BC KIDNAPPING WILL DISCOURAGE THE RETURN OF TOWNSHIP DWELLERS AND SUCCOUR / GIFT TO THE ELDERLY EITHER RELATED TO YOU OR NOT.

    Nna na wah o, see that girl dey appear waw waw for movie but see as she come take coni coni fine for this picture. Make una helep lead me to her make I go buy her small self.
    As for the arrest of people with tinted glass cars, mr. governor, na so your security sense reach? Na car abi na tinted glass dey kidnap people or dey commit crime or abi na the people wey dey inside am or some times even the so called security personnel? How about people wey get houses with tinted glass doors, windows, and high wall fences? Mr. governor I used to respect you alot, but if this actually came from you at this information age, I advice you seek for help from people with security experience. I will be readily available and more than happy to help if you and your system are sincere about securing the state.

  19. Igube Friday Aloysius December 21, 2012 at 7:21 am

    Was Nkiruka went to buy ground-nut in Imo when she was kidnapped? So Rochas has no Imo actress to appoint as ASA instead? Continue to fix Abians when unemployment syndrome rules Imo origins unabatedly. What a favouritism in Rochas’ govt.
