NOLLYWOOD You Are Abetting Kidnap And Money Ritual – Raji Fashola

Babatunde Raji Fashola, the Minister of Works and Housing, has called out Nollywood for always making their plots about money rituals.

This, according to him has enforced the belief that money can be made from human parts.

The former governor of Lagos State was the guest speaker at the fourth annual public lecture/symposium organised by the United Action for Change.

Fashola noted that belief system, reinforced through Nollywood movies, could be fuelling kidnapping, given the number of persons the police have arrested with human skull and other body parts, with the motive of money ritual.

“Some people believe that if you get a man’s head or a woman’s body parts, they could be turned into money. It’s not true! And when you ask people who believe in it if they have seen it happen before, they tell you someone said they had seen it.”

He said “However, it has become a reinforced belief through entertainment, social media and Nollywood. How can human head bring money? Money is paper invented by man, not God. They put the paper in a machine to print what we call money and that is the only place money comes from.

“But the challenge is the belief system. Just think about how many people have been missing – through kidnapping – because some people believe that it exists. The police could tell us the number of people they have apprehended with human parts, such as skulls. This belief system must go.” He added.
