The National Film and Video Censors Board, NFVCB, says they cannot ban the controversial film “Gangs of Lagos” since its release on streaming service, Amazon Prime Video.

Chief Executive Officer of the regulatory body, Adedayo Thomas, said his board has no legal backing to regulate what is viewed on streaming platforms.

Thomas was reacting to calls on to ban the movie for associating the Eyo Masquerade with gangsterism.

Executive Director however said, there was a bill before the National Assembly seeking to empower the Board to regulate online platforms and any other platforms where movies are viewed.

Lagos State Government had on Thursday accused the gangsters of Lagos promoters of making a mockery of the state’s heritage.
