The Kano Film Censorship Board, has henceforth prohibited showing or selling movies displaying kidnappings, drug addiction and snatching of GSM phones in the State.
The Board Executive Secretary, Ismaila Naaba Afakallah, explained in a chat that the prohibition becomes necessary, as the issues at stake have now turned notorious among Citizens.
“Henceforth, we will not allow films displaying Kidnappings, drug addiction and GSM phones snatching which has now taken toll on Kano residents”.
Afakallah explained that the measure was aimed at curtailing the menace and reducing the possibility of young people adopting the criminal acts. He stated that if they see an Actor, they want to indulge in the acts.
“Not every young man has the tenacity of understanding fictitious films’ actions. Somebody might mistake it as a reality and may go ahead to practice it, therefore, we must act now before it is too late,” he added.
