Shiites petitions IG of Police over Nollywood movie featuring Pete Edochie and Destiny Etiko.



The Islamic Movement in Nigeria, popularly known as Shiites have petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, over an upcoming Nollywood titled ‘Fatal Arrogance’.

The controversial movie features veteran actor Pete Edochie and actress Destiny Etiko, which made indications claims that the movie directed by Kingsley Anosike portrays the Islamic group as a bad entity.

Pete Edochie played the role of the group embattled leader, Sheik El-Zakzaky.

Photos from the movie set also portray the incident between the Shiite Sect and the convoy of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai in Kaduna, which led to the killing of over 1,000 members of the sect few years ago.

The Islamic Group equally noted that the movie’s storyline is not a coincidence as its title was gotten from a book Fatal Arrogance written by Kuanum Terrence and both convey the same plot. In a statement released by the movement, film producers were asked to be careful so that they are not used against the oppressed in society.
