The Islamic Movement in Nigeria, otherwise known as ‘Shi’ite’, has petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, and the National Film and Video Censors Board over a movie titled ‘Fatal Arrogance’.
According to PUNCH NEWSPAPER, in a statement on Thursday, the President, Media Forum of IMN, Ibrahim Musa, accused the Nigerian Army of sponsoring the movie, saying, “In a normal circumstance, this kind of clips can be dismissed but not at a time like this.
“The Islamic Movement in Nigeria wishes to call upon the respected professionals of Nollywood to address this issue immediately.
“If film producers are not careful, some disgruntled elements in governance will make them side with the oppressors against the oppressed as the film “Fatal Arrogance” is meant to achieve.
“Genocide is involved here; any move to justify the brutal and inhuman Zaria genocide of December 2015 is an affront on the Rome Status of the International Criminal Court.
“Evidently, for every Nigerian, these clips are meant to disparage the peaceful movement and portray it to the world as a violent armed movement.
