I’ll pay damages to be removed from ‘Fatal Arrogance’ – Kannywood actor

Fatal Arrogance

Kannywood star, Yakubu Mohammed says he is ready to pay damages to have scenes he appeared in deleted from the movie ‘Fatal Arrogance’.

He told BBC Hausa he regretted appearing in the film.

“I have told the producer to remove all my scenes in the movie, that I am ready to pay for damages, which is what the rule says,” he said.

“I never knew some of the scenes in the film will be portrayed in that manner. I only acted (in) my scenes, which I appeared six times in different places. In the film I was shot, and later died,” he said.

“It was a film that showed the clash between Nigerian Army and members of the Shiite movement in Zaria, and many members of the group were killed. When I read the script, I saw nothing castigating Islam in it, but you know script can change at some point, that was what happened.”

It comes amidst controversy surrounding the yet unreleased film, depicting the clash between members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria and the military in Zaria.

The movement complained on social media that it was shocked and its leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky were depicted and badly portrayed as terrorists.

The film, shot in Enugu, starred Pete Edochie and was produced by Anosike Orji.
