The popular actress, who is also a Special Assistant to Governor Rochas Okorocha on public affairs was reportedly kidnapped at about 2:30pm.
It was learnt that the abductors have established contact and were said to be demanding N100 million ransom.
Nkiru was last seen on the set of a movie last night in Owerri.
Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN) President Ibinabo Fiberisima confirmed the story.
‘We are trying to liaise with her state government to find a solution to it. It’s unfortunate that people can do things like this to people who make them happy‘, the AGN President lamented.
Ibinabo has also told Nigerians to pray for the fair-skinned actress. ‘Please Nigerians pray for her!‘.
