Veteran Nigerian Actor, Pete Edochie, has spoken out as regards threats coming from an Islamic group concerning the role he played in a recent Nollywood movie.
He revealed this on a media engagement, saying that there are already several petitions on social media saying the movie should not be publicized.
“If they have complained to the Inspector-General of Police, and the IGP says to give him a copy of the film, what are we going to do because the film is not in existence yet? It is not in circulation,”
“I’m supposed to have played a role that ridiculed their boss, chief, whoever is in charge of their group. I am suggesting that you wait, keep your gunpowder dry, when the film is released,”
“You can now make your grumbles known to the IGP. Whatever is being done now is premature, it is not proper. Fatal Arrogance, whatever it deals with, the best thing is to wait until it comes out.” The Actor said.
He further told them to squarely face the movie producer and not him.
“If you want to express resentment over a production you haven’t watched, direct your grievances to the producer of the film, not to Pete Edochie who is a mere actor, it does not concern me.” Edochie said.
