Blame hunger and poverty for ritual killings not Nollywood – Yul Edochie blows hot

Actor Yul Edochie has blamed the narrative that blames the torrent of ritual– related killings on Nollywood as he advises the Nigerian government to fix the country for the imminence to go down.

Yul Edochie’s advice follows the House of representatives claims on Wednesday that Nollywood is partly to be blamed for the increase in the rate of ritual killings across the country.

Reacting to the House of Reps’ indictment, the thespian on his Instagram page wrote: “From when I was a kid in the eighties, I started hearing about ritual killing in Nigeria. Then, there was no Nollywood. Hunger and poverty make people to do crime. No, be Nollywood cause am. Nollywood is only showing what happens in society. Nigerians are wallowing in extreme poverty. A hungry man is an angry man.

“Fix the country and crime will go away. Don’t blame Nollywood.”
