The National Film and Video Censors Board (NFCVB) has confiscated no fewer than 6,000 P0*nographic movies at major markets in Jos North and South Local Government Areas of Plateau state.
The Zonal Coordinator of the board in the North Central, Mr. Paul Ailewon, told newsmen on Thursday in Jos that the exercise would be a continuous one.
Ailewon said that the exercise was part of the mandate given to the board under his leadership to ensure that only videos approved by the board were released to the public.
“The film board is expected to approve only those videos that will teach moral values, especially, among children.
“We have seized more than 6,000 P0*nographic movies at Terminus Market in Jos North and Bukuru Market in Jos South Local Government Areas, this year.
“This is to ensure that the public is fed with only videos approved by the board as it has guidelines that should be strictly adhered to by film producers and marketers.
“We are in partnership with traditional and religious leaders, because they command high respect in the society to achieve this task.
“We see them as partners that will be able to inculcate in their followers, the ills of exposing their children to movies and videos that have strong language, violence and obscene scenes, “ he said.
