Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has played down on the opinion that Nollywood movies are the causes of incessant ritual killings in the country.
The actor and son of a legend, Pete Edochie bare his mind via Instagram while reacting to a call by the House of Rep to declare a state of Emergency over ritual killings in the country.
Yul said the reason for the rise of ritual killings is due to the high level of hunger and poverty faced by Nigerians.
He urged the government to find a lasting solution to the suffering of the people.
Yul said: “From when I was a kid in the eighties, I started hearing about ritual killings in Nigeria. There was no Nollywood. Hunger and poverty make people to do crime. No be Nollywood cause am, Nollywood is only showing what happens in the society”.
Going further, Yul stated: “Nigerians are wallowing in extreme poverty. A hungry man is an angry man. Fix the country and crime will go away, don’t blame Nollywood.
“Frustrated people use sniper to commit suicide, the remedy is to fix the reason for the frustration not ban sniper.”
