By KEMI BURKOLA, Abuja –
The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has called on the police to arrest actress Empress Njamah’s ex-lover, George Wade, who was alleged to have recently leaked a nude video of the actress.
Wade was alleged to have released the actress’s nude videos as a form of blackmail.
The National President of AGN, Emeka Rollas, while reacting to the incident in a statement on Friday, described the act as absolute violation of the right and dignity of Njamah.
Mr. Rollas said that the guild vehemently condemned the release of the private videos of its member, Njamah, on the social media.
According to him, this is an act of blackmail calculated to smear the actress’s image and publicly ridicule her by a man who claims to be her lover.
He noted that this was not only criminal but also evil and unacceptable.
Rollas said: “It is worthy to note that exposing nude videos and photographs of a person, injures her right to privacy is a serious offence.
“Actors Guild of Nigeria stands with Empress Njamah on this and shall provide full support in areas of counselling to help her recover from the psychological and emotional trauma she is currently passing through.
“We have been in forefront of campaign of violence against women and we view the action of this so-called evil lover man as an act targeted at eroding her dignity and self-respect.
“We call on the law enforcement agents to apprehend the culprit and ensure he faces the full wrath of the law for violating the right and dignity of Empress Njamah.
“We urge her fans to give her their full support at this time, she will come through this stronger and better.”
