Video Censors Board Raids Alaba International Market, Seizes Pirated Films


The National Film and Video Censors Board has seized many copies of Nigerian movies and duplicating machines from pirates in Alaba International market,Lagos State.





The raid follows an amendment to the NFVCB bill of 2016 signed into law by the Acting President in March 2017, which states that the release of unauthorised works attracts a maximum of three years jail term or a fine of N500,000.


Among the works pirated are big-budget cinema flicks such as the ‘Wedding Party’, ‘Jenifa’s Diary’, ‘Wives on Strike’ and A trip to Jamaica’. Also seized are multiple DVD copiers, writable DVDs and generators. According to the board’s management, some of the perpetrators were also arrested.


Filmmakers have however called for stiffer sanctions.

Well they should carry out the raid more so as to discourage these pirates from going back into the trade 😀😀😀

A very good move. Alaba boys can pirate a life join. Once they have your original copy, forget it and it keep risking the life of our DVD's while they keep making their cool money. NFVCB, keep this act up.
