The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has issued a statement calling on law enforcement to take action against George Wade, the former fiancé of actress Empress Njamah, for leaking her private photographs and videos. The guild, through its Director of Communications Kate Henshaw, has expressed support for Njamah and condemned Wade’s actions as criminal, evil, and unacceptable.
The statement begins by noting that AGN President Ejezie Emeka Rollas, MON, “vehemently condemns the release of private videos of our member, Empress Njamah on social media.” The guild goes on to say that this act of blackmail, which was perpetrated by someone who claimed to be Njamah’s lover, was intended to smear her image and publicly ridicule her.
The AGN notes that this is not just a violation of Njamah’s privacy, but also a violation of her dignity. The guild states that it is standing with Njamah and will provide her with counseling support to help her recover from the psychological and emotional trauma she is currently experiencing.
The statement concludes by calling on law enforcement to take action against Wade and ensure that he faces the full wrath of the law for his actions. The AGN emphasizes that this kind of behavior is unacceptable and must be dealt with accordingly.
In recent years, the issue of revenge pornography has become increasingly prevalent in Nigeria and around the world. The AGN’s statement serves as a reminder that this type of behavior is not only morally reprehensible but also criminal, and that those who engage in it must be held accountable for their actions.
It’s important to note that the act of sharing or publishing private, sexually explicit images or videos without the consent of the individuals depicted is a form of sexual abuse, it’s a violation of an individual’s right to privacy, and can cause significant emotional distress to the victim.
In some countries, this is a criminal offense and if found guilty, the perpetrator could face severe penalties such as imprisonment and hefty fines.
The AGN’s statement is a strong message to the public that the guild will not tolerate this kind of behavior and will support its members in taking action against those who engage in it. It’s a strong stance on the need for better laws and policies to protect individuals from revenge pornography and to hold perpetrators accountable for their actions.
It’s also a call to individuals to be more mindful of the consequences of their actions, particularly in matters of personal relationships. It’s a reminder that the sharing of private images or videos without consent is never justifiable and can have severe consequences.
Empress Njamah’s situation is a tragic one, however, her case serves as a warning to individuals who engage in such behavior, and it’s a strong message to the public that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated. The AGN’s statement is a reminder that victims of revenge pornography have the right to seek justice, and that those who engage in this behavior must be held accountable for their actions.
