National President Actors Guild of Nigeria Emeka Rollas has vowed to take action against Delta State politician Prince Kpokpogri for allegedly blackmailing Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh.
In a post shared on Instagram, Emeka Rollas frowned at events in the past few days, especially after Tonto Dikeh’s leaked conversation with her ex-boyfriend, Prince, flooded social media without her consent.
Many had alleged that Prince Kpokpogri connived with a blogger to blackmail the actress with her several audio conversations.
Emeka Rollas said they would use the Delta State politician to set an example to serve as a deterrent to people, including bloggers profiling Nollywood actresses for blackmail.
While warning its members to be careful with dating, the AGN president said they would no longer fold their hands and watch their members taken to public ridicule via invasion of privacy.
He wrote: Events of the last few days have shown that Actresses are now marked for blackmail especially hinging it on the basis of a relationship gone awry. But should it be a reason for publishing private conversations without the consent of the other party?
We shall use this one to set example to serve as a deterrent to all other persons including bloggers presently profiling actresses for blackmail to have a rethink.
We will no longer fold our hands and watch our members taken to public ridicule via invasion of privacy. We are also looking into cases where our certified members have taken to social media to call fellow members out or make statements that can bring disrepute to our Guild or cause disharmony among members.
