Emeka Rollas, the national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), has clarified that Prince Onyenwere, the Nollywood costumier accused of raping a 10-year-old girl, is not affiliated with the guild.

In his post, Emeka stated, “They are not members of my Guild please. You guys should stop. We took the guy to the police and the little girl’s parents withdrew the case themselves, so what should AGN do?”

The incident involving Prince garnered attention in January after he was reportedly assaulted for allegedly abusing the girl on a movie set. However, he was later released by the police, prompting discussions on social media.
