An Islamic group has petitioned the Inspector General of Police over a new Nollywood movie titled “Fatal Arrogance” which features the veteran actor, Pete Edochie, and Destiny Etiko.
The Shiite Islamic Movement of Nigeria has expressed their dissatisfaction of the movie which portrays Muslims as terrorists. The movie revolves around the incident that happened between the Shiite sect and the convoy of Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai in Kaduna.
The statement released by the president of the media forum for the Shiite group Ibrahim Musah says that the movie is capable of causing disunity in the country.
“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…….”
