Kano Bans Movies Promoting Cross Dressing, Thuggery



Kano State Censorship Board has issued directives banning movies that portray or promote cross-dressing and thuggery in the state.

The executive secretary of the Board, Abba El-Mustapha, made this known yesterday when he met with the board’s management and stakeholders from Kannywood.

A statement issued by the board’s information officer, Abdullahi Sani Sulaiman, said the decision to ban such films was  necessitated by public outcry, hence the need to address the production of films suspected to be promoting crimes and deviant behaviours among youths.

The statement also quoted Abba El-Mustapha to have stated that, “it is high time to fish out any film that may demoralize our customs, norms and values in the name of reaching popularity, viewers or business making.”


El-Mustapha further explained that the Board has the  power to ban, suspend or prohibit the production, distribution, sale or exhibition of any film, pornographic books or publications in the state.

He urged the general public to provide relevant information to the Board on any film or publication they believe is not in accordance with the law.
