Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie has been kidnapped. The veteran actor was kidnapped on sunday on his way to an event in Anambra State.
Speaking in a telephone interview with NEXT, the actor’s son, Uche Edochie confirmed that the actor was being driven from his country home in Enugu in the company of his family members when armed men stopped the car he was travelling in.
Only Mr. Edochie was kidnapped.
Uche Edochie disclosed that though the incident was obviously financially-motivated and one of many in a string of recent kidnappings of influential Nigerians, the kidnappers were yet to get in touch with the family, much less demand a ransom.
Sounding very upset, the younger Mr. Edochie said; “our family is still in shock, and making attempts to contact the police; there is no handbook on what to do when your father is kidnapped.”
