The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has urged filmmakers to stop promoting money ritual contents in their movies.
Mohammed stated this on Monday, during a media visit to the Daily Trust office in Abuja.
According to him, the directive to filmmakers is premised on the confession of some money ritual suspects who claimed they learnt the heinous act from movies and on social media.
This, he said, has boosted the resolve of the Federal Government to sanitise social media.
He said, “Many have also blamed Nollywood for featuring money rituals in some of its movies, saying this has negatively influenced the vulnerable youth.
To mitigate this, I have directed the National Film and Video Censors Board, the body set up to regulate the film and video industry in Nigeria, to take this issue into consideration while performing its role of censoring and classifying films and videos.
The popular Minister of Culture and Information Lai Mohammed is a two tenure minister of Information and a strong advocate of APC.
