Lagos, Nigeria

WorldStage Newsonline-- Film practitioners and bodies involved in the production, distribution and exhibition of films and videos within Lagos State will henceforth be required to hold valid registration and filming permit from Film and Video Censors Board.

Acting Commissioner of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mrs Adebimpe Akinsola, in a statement noted that most practitioners had continued with a flagrant disregard to the provisions of the Law by failing to register with the board, as well as obtain film shooting permit before engaging in any outdoor production.

The commissioner, therefore, stated that it was issuing a final warning to everyone involved in this practice and also warned that the Law will henceforth deal with defaulters.
