My Life Is In Danger” – Nollywood Actor Pete Edochie Cries Out Over Movie ‘Imitating Shiites As Terrorists’

Legendary Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie has disclosed how he was reportedly threatened following the new movie coming up titled “Fatal Arrogance”.

The said movie was said to have ridiculed the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN).

The 73 year old actor told Sahara Reporters on Monday, that Youtube videos and messages were going round on Whatsapp to pre-empt the project.

In his words:

“I was part of a movie that was done a few days ago. Two days after we ended shooting that film, I got calls from people all over the country referring me to WhatsApp.

“I checked and saw that the IMN, according to what I read, had notified the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) that Pete Edochie and the Nigerian government, with some actors from the north, had done a production that was intended to ridicule and misrepresent them.

“One claimed the government gave money to Pete Edochie to exculpate them from what they did in Zaria years ago. I’m moved to comment on this… I don’t understand what IMN is driving at.

“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.
