Na will rather give the money to that buhari praise singer looking for 1k than sponsor this movie. Don't use our dear Ogadagidi as bait to start shouting blast-femi, blast-femi o
Yankee101:
Why you go collect money from Sunni government to portray shiites as terrorists?
Osama bin laden was Sunni
Buhari is Sunni
Elrufai is Sunni. But you had no business involving yourself in their ideological wars for a few bucks. So why are you crying out now?
ThatFairGuy1:
It's very unthinkable for NA to sponsor this kind of movie, what are they going to achieve in causing more problem?
I'm not IMN and will NEVER be but portraying them as such IS NOT GOOD FOR THE SAKE OF PEACE.

He has already come out to clarify things, he is a man of character, he is only interpreting a role, the backwardness of those terrorists up north and their hate for igbos can never be overemphasized, much more people from waste land.

Trouble go sit down on its own in one corner but some people would be poking at it. Did he know that that man he portrayed as terrorist lost seven grown up sons to the Nigerian military? Now, he's crying that he wasn't involved when he was the one who represented the man in the movie. People can be insensitive to other people's emotional state of mind sha. Crisis and killings occurred in the north, he is sitting down his fat ass in Enugu and acting a role portraying a grieving man a terrorist. Some people are more than being ordinarily stupid.

Have you seen any threat so far? The same man who got himself into shiit is also the one crying now. That's guilt killing him.

I like this man... grin he's very good with words "Save your gunpowder" grin some Nigerians shaaah don't really know where and whom to channel their frustration to, they just open their mouth "waaaaaaah" anyhow

He got himself involved in ideological war that was none of his business, he should have known better. And now, he's the one threatening himself because I'm yet to see any evidence of him being threatened. Whipping up sentiment doesn't help

If the movie actually portrayed Shiites as terrorists then Pete Edochie is very very wrong here
And the NA sponsored the shit?
I'm so ashamed of these military heads
Your guys ain't paid enough yet you've got the funds to sponsor a movie just to prove you're innocent while you're dark-guilty here

Na⁸ him find trouble na. Look at the turban he wore. Exactly like El zazaki own.

Everything in that movie depicts IMN group and killing them and their members and still tagging them as terrorists was in bad taste.

I know the FG bribed the movie industry to act that script in other to justify the illtreatment that was meted on this harmless group.

Ngene is a useless goat tongue

I'm disappointed in Pete edochie,how can you a Christian igbo with your age n experience agree to take up such role,why can't the army or government get an hausa actor for the role,after all the issue of the IMN with the government is just the struggle between the Sunni vs the Shiite sects of islam,the world over there are much more Sunni terrorist Organizations like Al QUAEDA,Hamas,Abu zayaf, Islamic brotherhood,Al shabab,Taliban,boko Haram etc yet the Sunni because of their majority n control of government would want everyone to believe that the Shiite are the worst set of Muslims while they are no better,Pete edochie as a Christian shouldn't have agreed to be entangled with their problem but I guess he thought 'nna it's biziness'.
Re: Fatal Arrogance: Pete Edochie Threatened Over 'Shiites' Movie As Terrorists by GiZcorp: 7:23am On Sep 15
That was callous, pompous and insensitive of him... His statements were totalling redicuing the gray hair on him. That you're a mere actor doesn't mean u accept all scripts especially in an already religion tensed place like Nigeria. The Nigerian Military did shi'ite a grave injustice and it's my prayer that the same fate be melted out to who ever orchestrated that barbaric event.

Shut up!
Movie industry have the volition to portray any manner of movies they want. It's purely fictional. Any manner of resemblance in characters, places, religion or whatsoever is purely coincidental.

I've seen a movie where Jesus, a God was portrayed as a gay.

Fucin Extremists!!

If it were Pastor David Ibiyeomie that made this threat, they would have condemned him a million times. Now, see what they wrote.

Well said. He should have understood the country he is in.

You are own your own as the military cannot protect your person. This is a country where there is no security.

Sir, you shouldn't have accepted this role , no matter the financial inducement.

Sir, this is Nigeria ooooooo, from the head to the bottom, this country is not safe for religious issues.


This government has zero security of any sort of protection for her citizens. Northerners are fanatical when it comes to their religion. Live the remaining part of your life in peace. You have done a lot in the entertainment industry. You should have known better. Be wise.
Thanks bro

Okonkwo should have known better.

He can't just say blame d producer not me, as if he wasn't involved in the pro-government propaganda movie considering how they handled the Shiite situation, which was more political than religious btw.

Maybe he just didn't care. This could turn out to be a case of fatal arrogance. Hope not

It appears he may have to relocate to the UK but how is it that he signed a contract to play a role he did not fully understand.

lol war ke!! Do you think you can go to war with the shiites? Do you think any Northern actor will accept that role? You guys down south dont really know who the shiites are! Shiites are just like BH without arms. Very dangerous and daring, the last thing on their mind is death, while you my brother want to make money and enjoy life, so die that matter, besides na him ibo brothers go suffer the consequences. Lets hope they change their mind about the movie soonest.

Juanmike:
Like I said, he is an actor, there are many films I have watched about Hitler, he is only portraying the role given to him as an actor if they have issues they should meet with the producers.
In a sane country, there is nothing wrong at all in him playing his role as an actor. He is one of the best actors Nigeria should be proud of. Hitler's roles focused on a nation that is not as divided as Nigeria is. Regardless of how well scripted a movie script is, there should be a time to reject some of them scripts.im sure other prominent actors like him will reject certain roles. Why will an actor accept a role that depicts them as Shekau or Zakzazzy knowing that will trigger some nerves that think he doesn't fully understand what their movement stand for?

These people aren't stupid entirely, they have educated ones of them that believe in whatever they believe in, thats enough reason to acknowledge the fact that there are some people agitating for a movement, probably backed externally that the Nigerian government needs to focus on, rather they chose to focus on a comparatively harmless group from his part of the nation and chose him to depict a role someone from another region they despise should play.

Im not an actor, but if i was I definitely will know where to draw the line. Ill definitely say No to such scripts, especially as a highly respected actor and community leader for a grieving part of the nation that shares nothing in common with the tribe Im being paid to portray in the movie.
He did the right thing coming out to explain that he was just an actor and may not have full knowledge of what the complete picture of the movie is except the 5 or 6 scenes he acted in.

He's not at fault at all for just acting in a movie, and i think so because im not brainwashed like some people are, but I'd think twice if it was me dealing with people whose mentality is to kill another person for just singing a song about someone they've never even seen before and only read about in books others from a different nation brainwashed them with.
Just my view.
Re: Fatal Arrogance: Pete Edochie Threatened Over 'Shiites' Movie As Terrorists by thecommunist(m): 8:12am On Sep 15
For the mere fact that Nigerian Army sponsored it alone shows that something is wrong. You are on your own o. The same Hausa/Fulani army that your people are complaining about is who you allowed to use you as a tool of propaganda against others. Soon they will look for another set of people to use as propaganda against you too When you fall out with them...and don't be surprised that the next move that the Nigerian Army have in mind is to sponsor some northern actors to make a film ridiculing your people's struggle because the same thing they did to Shiite is what they did to IPOB.
