Written by Morenike Adebayo on June 17, 2016
The National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) says it has commenced a nationwide clampdown on marketers who distribute unwholesome and uncensored films in Nigeria. This is contained in a statement made available to newsmen on Thursday by the NFVCB Director of Operations in Abuja, Mr Cornel Agim.
Agim said the defaulters include unlicensed distributors of uncensored movies, unwholesome films and pornographic videos. The action also targets those who exhibit film or video works in places that are not approved and certified by the board.
The board warns that anyone who falls into any of these categories should quickly go to the nearest NFVCB office and rectify his or her area of default.
The first phase of the clampdown had commenced on the thirteenth of and will end on the twenty-fourth of June, 2016. The statement admonished stakeholders to make use of the opportunity to get their movies licensed and censored.
