Popular Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has responded to Babatunde Fashola, the current Minister of Works and Housing who said Nollywood movies is promoting ritual killings and kidnapping following the number of persons the Nigerian police have arrested with human skulls and other human body parts, with the motive of money ritual.
In a recent interview with Sunnews, Yul Edochie stated that he is not in support of filmmakers banning such movies because he believes it is all about entertainment and it ends there.
“Sadly at the moment Nigeria is stuck with a crop of leaders who can’t move this country forward, rather they look for who to blame for their inefficiency. America has been producing action movies with plenty of gun violence since I was born till date, have you ever seen any American leader blaming entertainers for crime in their country? That’s because it’s all entertainment. It ends there. Our government should focus on providing jobs for the youths, spread wealth, improve the economy and security and crime rate will reduce. It’s very simple. They should stop looking for who to blame and do the jobs they were voted in to do or resign for others to try. Next thing you’ll see them thinking of how to ban Nollywood and render more people jobless,” he told Sunnews.
