The Nigerian actors under the aegis of the Actors Guild of Nigeria have vehemently condemned the release of nude videos of one of their members, actress Empress Njamah.
The PUNCH had earlier reported that the estranged fiancé of the Nollywood actress, George Wade, allegedly shared the nude video of the actress.
A source said Wade created a WhatsApp group where he added multiple people and began posting naked videos he took of the actress in her house, including innocent videos of her taking her bath.
Recall that the duo had separated in 2022 with Njamah accusing her ‘ex-fiance’ of physically assaulting her, in a Livestream through her verified Instagram handle.
However, AGN in a statement by the National President, Ejezie Emeka Rolls, and made available to The PUNCH by the Director of Communications, Kate Henshaw, read in part, “We vehemently condemn the release of private videos of our member, Empress Njamah on social media.
“This act of blackmail calculated to smear the image and publicly ridicule her by a man who claimed to be her lover is not only criminal but also evil and unacceptable.
“It is worthy to note that exposing nude videos and photographs of a person that injure her right to privacy is a serious offence.
The Association further said it 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 a 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,” the statement added.
