According to BBC Yoruba, a Muslim human rights organization called Ta’awunu Human Rights of Nigeria has commented on the movie in which well-known Nollywood actor Odunlade Adekola stars.
The movie allegedly denigrated Muslim women. It was learned that the woman who played a Muslim woman in the movie had also been charged with playing the part.
According to information obtained from the Muslim group, Odunlade allegedly performed in the movie with the intent of dehumanizing Muslim women who cover their faces. They claimed that Odunlade remarked in the movie that the Muslim woman who boarded a public transportation system intended to “Iyanna run.” They said that the term “Iyanna run” doesn’t exist anywhere in the nation.
