Nollywood costumier who allegedly raped 10-year-old girl not AGN member – Emeka Rollas

The national president of Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) Emeka Rollas has said that the Nollywood costumier named Prince Onyenwere who allegedly raped a 10-year-old girl is not a member of the guild.

Mr Rollas said this in an Instagram post on Monday night after some of his followers questioned why the AGN has not taken action against Prince for his allegedly defiling a minor.

Weighing in on the matter, Emeka said the accused and the victim are not AGN members and the girl’s parents withdrew the case.

He wrote: “They are not members of my Guild please. You guys should stop. We took the guy to police and the little girl’s parents withdrew the case themselves so what should AGN do?”

Recall that Prince was handed over to the police in January after he was beaten for allegedly abusing the girl on a movie set and was subsequently released by the police, sparking reactions on social media.

However, in a statement released on Saturday, police spokesperson Bright Edafe said the “mother of the victim compounded the entire case stating that she and her family has forgiven the suspect” and refused to show up with her daughter which led to the suspect’s release.
