Uzee Usman, Nollywood actor, urges FG to improve security situation in North East
Nollywood actor, Uzee Usman has urged the Federal Government to improve the security situation in the North-Eastern part of Nigeria.
Uzee Usman admonished the government to seek a lasting solution to the security challenges in the North-Eastern part of the country.
Usman spoke in Lagos on Thursday, November 12; during the press screening of a movie, “Voiceless” at Film House Cinema, Lekki, Lagos. The actor, who is part of the cast in the movie, said the government should seek international assistance in the fight against insurgency in the area.
He said that some of such people suffered stigmatisation in society and were; sometimes, not accepted by people around them, which should not be so.
” I intend to draw the attention of government and well-meaning Nigerians to the need for proper rehabilitation of the abducted Nigerians who are fortunate to gain freedom.”
” It is important we find a way to integrate these people back into the system.
In fact, some of them could be lawyers, doctors; and all if well taken care of after the bitter experience of being abducted.
” You can see Salma in the movie escaped from her abductors; and she was not accepted into the society because she had a child there.
”The parents could not withstand the shame; parties in this situation need to be counselled and re-orientated,” he said.
Equally important, the movie “Voiceless” is an emotional and thought-provoking one which replicates the emotional and psychological trauma the Chibok girls experienced with their abductors – Boko Haram.
