Despite Pete Edochie’s explanation that he did not mean to ridicule leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), alias the Shittes, El Zakzaki, the organization is still harrasing him.
Edochie had explained that he played a role in the film which was sponsored by the Nigerian Army entitled ‘Fatal Arrogance’ as a professional actor, and not to portray Elzakzaky and his followers as terrorists.
Elzakzaky and the Shittes had been at war with the federal government since, a situation that had led to the massacre of Shittes and imprisonment of El Zakzaky since 2015.
But the Shittes have rejected Edochie’s explanations, and moved ahead to petition him to the Inspector General of Police, International Criminal Court, as well as to Films Censorship Board.
The Shittes are presently asking for serious sanctions against Edochie from these bodies for his role in the yet to be released film.
Why can’t the Shittes forget this matter, and the veteran actor be? He is too old for this kind of hounding and harassments.
