Ismail Naabba, the Executive secretary of Kano Film Censorship Board, has announced that henceforth prohibited showing or selling movies displaying kidnappings, drug addiction and snatching of GSM phones in the State.
Mr Ismail in a statement on Tuesday in Kano, explained that “Henceforth, we will not allow films displaying Kidnappings, drug addiction and GSM phones snatching which has now taken toll on Kano residents”.
The Censorship Board boss explained that the measure was aimed at curtailing the menace and reducing the possibility of young people adopting the criminal acts.
“Not every young man has the tenacity of understanding fictitious films’ actions. Somebody might mistake it as a reality and may go ahead to practice it, therefore, we must act now before it is too late,” he added.
He stated that if they see an Actor, they want to indulge in the acts.
