Executive Secretary, National Film and Video Censors Board, NFVCB, Alhaji Adedayo Thomas, has said that part of the board’s activities last year led to seizure of N10 million worth of pornography videos. Adedayo made this claim during an interactive session at two day event meant to mark internet week in Benue State.
Adedayo said that as part of the NFVCB’s achievement in the last year, arrests were made of kingpins in the movie piracy in market across Nigeria. He also made the remark to debunk claims that the board has not been effective in combatting piracy and regulating the movie and film making industry.
Adedayo however admitted that there are areas the board is looking to improve on more. “We have not achieved enough education especially in the areas music video regulation.
“But first, we are trying to improve perception that people have about us.
“We can go about with the name ‘Censor’ attached to us. We trying to change it to classification just like it obtains in other parts of the world,” Adedayo said.
He added that the board is doing more to bring music videos under classification. “We are working out details on how to assign hours to music videos. We are Sensitive about minors and we are trying to assign late hours to these videos. But we need to consult our stakeholders,” he said.
