The 52-year-old actor also decried the rising cases of abduction in Imo state which the government has failed to address, describing the trend as “very sad and heartbreaking”.
“It’s really very sad and heartbreaking how under the watch of one government my state “Imo” has lost more person’s now than we ever did during the civil war including my father Mr Kenneth Odoputa who has been taken away for 4 months now without any information dead/alive and no one is saying anything about it hmmm #prayerforImostate,” he wrote.
KanyiDaily recalls that Nollywood actress, Bimpe Akintunde had also revealed that she and her daughter escaped an attack from suspected bandits along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
