My colleagues believed I staged my kidnap in 2015 – Prince Eke

Nollywood actor Prince Eke has recounted his ordeal after he was kidnapped eight years ago in Rivers State on his way back from a movie shoot.

Eke revealed that five gunmen attacked his vehicle in the middle of the road and thereafter demanded a sum of N15 million as ransom.

On Tuesday, the gym instructor took to his Instagram page to mark “exactly eight years” since he was abducted.

In the post, the actor revisited claims by some of his colleagues that he kidnapped himself to raise money.

“Today marks exactly 8 years I was kidnapped in Nigeria. Along Ubima road in rivers state. I experienced hell on earth . But the greatest experience was that, most of my colleagues and friends alleged that I kidnapped myself to raise money,” he wrote.

“Pray for life, because if you eventually die. People that you thought were close to you will say so many unprintable things about you. Thank God for the gift of life and grace!”

Eke, 46, began acting in 2003 when he was featured in the movie ‘Indecent Proposal’. Since then, he has been featured in hundreds of films.

He was married to music star Muma Gee, but their marriage crashed in 2020 over allegations of domestic violence and death threats.
