Kano censors movies promoting kidnappings, drug addictions
Story from Shafa’atu DAUDA, Kano
The Kano Film Censorship Board has prohibited the showing or selling of movies displaying kidnappings, drug addiction and snatching of GSM phones in the state.
The Board Executive Secretary, Ismaila Naaba Afakallah, explained that the prohibition becomes necessary, as the issues at stake have now turned notorious among citizens.
“Henceforth, we will not allow films displaying Kidnappings, drug addiction and GSM phones snatching which has now taken a toll on Kano residents.”
Afakallah explained that the measure was aimed at curtailing the menace and reducing the possibility of young people adopting it.
This is coming after a week Hisbah Board seized a truck loaded with 3,600 crates of assorted beer covered with bags of chicken feeds.
The Commander General of the Board, Harun Ibn-Sina, was seen with some other members of the board uncovering the camouflage as they recovered some crates piled behind the bags of feeds.
