Cynthia Okereke dies a year after kidnappers release

Africanglitz reported hours ago that Cynthia Okereke had died, 12 months after suffering in a kidnapper’s den.

The sad news was announced by her colleague in the entertainment industry, Joseph Okechukwu.

According to the filmmaker, he was about to pay for Cynthia Okereke’s flight ticket to come to America, but sadly, she died on Tuesday night.

“REST IN PEACE, Nwanyi oma. I’m shattered beyond words. The fact that I was about to pay for your flight ticket to come finish what we started only to hear you went to be with Lord just last night is one of the toughest things I’ve ever had to deal with in recent times. I pray I’m able to recover from this shock. Life is really just a mist. One minute you have it, the next you don’t.

For the more than 20 years that I’ve known you, you’ve been such an amazing, decent, and lovely soul to be around. I never imagined you’d exit so unceremoniously. Words fail me.

Sleep on, Cynthia. May your gentle soul rest on till we meet again in glory,” he wrote.

Nollywood actors had taken their turns to mourn the late actress, who is well known for her motherly roles in Epic Nigerian movies.
