When will assaults and extortion of Nollywood actors and producers stop?
Nollywood actress and producer Kemi Afolabi was recently assaulted on a movie set in Ikorodu by thugs.
The thugs, who are popularly known as omo onile or area boys, not only disrupted the set of her movie but allegedly beat the actress up. One of them was seen in a video that went viral raising his hands against the actress.
He was said to have allegedly punched Afolabi in the stomach causing her to bleed, all because they were not given money by the movie producer before the shoot commenced.
In January, Omoni Oboli had cried out to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to come to the aid of movie producers as area boys in the state embarrass and extort money from them anytime they come out to shoot movies.
