    Blame nobody but our noisy neighbours from the East for the piracy which has become so endemic and difficult to control. Their stock in trade is to engage in everything criminal and turn round to boast of business successes, albeit; business built on the foundations fraudulent activities. Obasanjo’s book was so criminally pirated by these same elements and they seem to have gotten away with the crime, always reaping from other people’s sweat and are never ashamed when they call such crimes “Business”. Not until the Alaba market the capital location of piracy business is completely pulled down and perpetrators handed long jail terms, Lagos may not see the end of piracy anytime soon.

    Piracy kills and the most sadden aspect is still that the society embrace it buy buying it cheap. Everybody should support nollywood in their pursuit to drive away piracy and the nollywood as well should do more meaningful and technical movie so that people dont regret spending more money to buy a movie only to discover it is senseless. October 1 is an example of a good movie unlike ……….that is very senseless and lacks technicality.

    D war on Piracy CANNOT be won until they cut the root cause of D problem which is to arrest all D criminals dealing in this illicit trade.
    Why is that it’s only people like Kunle Afolayan ,Yemi Sodimu & Tunde Kelani fighting this piracy war?What happened to their colleagues in Nollywood from the Eastern part of Nigeria.
    Why are some tribe in this country so inherently tribalistic.
    The piracy war is NOT for the Yorubas to fight alone.
    We all know D people dealing pirated items and tribe they are from.
    Enough is enough all of U from D East of Nigeria should STOP turning blind eye to this evil called Piracy.
