July 14, 2015 – Buhari Orders Arrest Of Movie Pirates, Vows To Rescue Nollywood Producers

What President Jonathan didn’t have the boldness to do in 4 years has been accomplished by President Buhari in under 3 months.

President Buhari has ordered the immediate arrest of movie pirates eating from the sweats of producers all over Nigeria

Hear what Buhari said through his media adviser today:

“Nollywood is making progress. We should work with them. Unless they are backed, they will be ruined by pirates who want to reap where they have not sowed.

“They have built an industry with their own sweat. It is therefore incumbent on us to give them the necessary support,”.

Buhari also ordered enforcement agencies to identify the perpetrators of copyright piracy, their sponsors and collaborators, and bring them to justice.

    The thing is that Jonathan administration was friendly to lobbyists shielding the pirates, Buhari is not giving them a chance. We hope they will not overpower him using foolish Tinubu

    Okay, good. This is how legal system should go about it….not consulting babalawo and casting sihr (magic) on people. Anyways, good-luck.

    Lastly, while I support this move, believe that pirates should be persecuted, I also believe that movie industry should be checked. I certainly dislike movies being produced now teaching children all kind of vices in the name of educating people. What I meant is nakedness, homosexual movies and all sorts of vices “Nollywood” broadcast these days is heartbreaking. If they do not desist from producing such silly movies, especially ‘English section’ of nollywood then, I pray I pirates will eat them up.
