Islamic Group ‘attack’ Pete Edochie, Destiny Etiko Over New Movie


Nollywood’s upcoming movie, ‘Fatal Arrogance’ featuring Pete Edochie and Destiny Etiko has stirred some contention as the Shiite Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) petitioned against it.

IMN says the movie produced and directed by Anosike Kingsley Orji portrays their movement as a terrorist organization bent on eradicating the Nigerian State.

According to the storyline of “Fatal Arrogance”, the movie depicts an incident between the Shiite Sect and the convoy of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai in Kaduna. The incident led to the killing of over 1,000 members of the sect including children of its leader Sheik El-Zakzaky.

Recall that Zakzaky himself and his wife have been in prison since the incident while the Kaduna State government banished the group.

In a statement issued on Thursday, 10th September, the President of the Media forum for the Shiite group, Ibrahim Musa asserted that the movie is capable of causing disunity in the country was being sponsored by the Nigerian Army.

The statement read partly;

“If film producers do not take their time, some not so nice instruments in governance will make them side with the oppressors against the oppressed as the film “Fatal Arrogance” is meant to achieve.

Also, the movie being talked about here has the same title as Kuanum Terrence’s book that died on its arrival, where he blamed the victims of terror for being their own nemesis. He had launched what he called a book titled ‘Fatal Arrogance: How El-Zakzaky Hypnotised IMN Members into Killing Themselves while Protecting Him’. As ridiculous as the name may sound, the content is not far from that too.

The IMN stated that the movie was capable of creating conflicts and discord in an already divided country.
