Yul Edochie Slams House of Reps For Blaming Ritualism on Nollywood

Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has reacted to claims by the House of Representatives that the movie industry is to be blamed also for the rising cases of ritual killings in the country.

The House of Reps had on Wednesday, February 9 during a plenary session made assertions that Nollywood movies promotes ritual killings and called for the declaration of a state of emergency to address the bad omen.

Reacting to this, Yul took to his Instagram story to state that poverty and hunger should be blamed, not Nollywood as the movie industry only portrays things that are already happening in the society.

He wrote:

“From when I was a kid in the eighties, I started hearing about ritual killing in Nigeria. Then, there was no Nollywood. Hunger and poverty make people to do crime. No, be Nollywood cause am. Nollywood is only showing what happens in society. 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.”
