Nollywood actor Pete Edochie has alleged threats to his life due to his involvement in a multi-million naira film sponsored by the Nigerian military aimed at portraying the Islamic movement in Nigeria as a terrorist organization.
SaharaReporters has learned that the film titled Fatal Arrogance was sponsored by the Nigerian military as part of a cover-up of the massacre of Shiites by soldiers in December 2015.
More than 348 people were reportedly killed, and 347 bodies were reportedly secretly buried by the military in a mass grave during the incident.
In the film shot in Enugu State and produced by Anosike Kingsley Orji, Edochie was presented in a role wearing an outfit resembling Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, head of IMN, detained since December 2015.
Reacting in a 12-minute video of the backlash that greeted the film’s production, the Nollywood actor claimed he was unaware of the film’s theme and script before agreeing to the contract to appear in it. .
He revealed that he also played down his role in film production as a guest actor and called on Nigerians not to condemn the film until its release.
He said, I don’t understand what IMN means. The film we shot has not yet been released, it has not been edited, production is not finished.
If they complained to the Inspector General of Police, and the IGP tells me to give me a copy of the film, what are we going to do because the film does not yet exist, it is not not in circulation.
I’m supposed to have played a role that ridiculed their boss, leader, whoever is in charge of their group.
I suggest you wait, keep your gunpowder dry, when the movie comes out you can now make your grunts known to the Inspector General of Police.
Everything that is done now is premature, it is not right.
Fatal Arrogance, whatever it is, whatever it is, I think the best thing to do is wait for the production to come out.
The veteran actor has gone ahead to sound the alarm bells about the threat to his life for starring in the controversial film.
He added, I didn’t write it, the movie was produced by Kingsley Orji Anosike. If you want to express resentment towards the production, which you have not watched, direct your grievances to the producer of the film and not to Pete Edochie who is a mere actor, that’s not my concern.
I thank all these people who out of concern informed me of the campaign of deliberation of my person, of the organized threat of my person by IMN, I thank you all. Im a free born from Nigeria, I was born and raised in Nigeria. I am not going to run away from Nigeria because a few people think they want things to be done their way.

IMN linked the film to a book written by Kuanum Terrence, which he accused of being a military apologist.
The group petitioned the Film and Censorship Council and the Inspector General of Police on the matter.
