Don't Blame Nollywood For Rituals, Fix The Country And Crime Will Go Away - Actor Yul Edochie Tells Reps (Updated: 8 months ago)


Actor cum politician, Yul Edochie has urged the House of Reps not to blame the menace of ritual killings on the Nigerian movie industry, Nollywood.

He stated that Nollywood only shows what happens in society and should not be accused of promoting ritual killings.

The House of Representatives recently tasked Adedayo Thomas, the executive director, National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) “to rise to the mandate of the agency as the clearinghouse for all movies produced in the country” to stop portraying ritual killings in a good light in their movies following the spike in ritual killings being experienced in the country.

Reacting to the move, Yul Edochie, stating that the portrayal of rituals in their movies only mirrors the reality on the ground within the country, in order to draw attention to the vices. He then continued to insist that the lawmakers who have true power are the ones who can bring about lasting change in the country.

“Nollywood is only showing what happens in society. Nigerians are wallowing in extreme poverty. A hungry man is an angry man, fix the country and crime will go away. Don’t blame Nollywood.” he said in the post.
