Lagos State Government has expressed displeasure with the promoters of the “Gangs of Lagos” film/series over what it described as a “total abomination” adding that the movie portrayed the culture of the State in the negative limelight.

Reacting, the Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mrs Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf said the Ministry, being the regulatory body and custodian of the culture of Lagos, said the film/series is “very unprofessional and misleading while its content is derogatory of our culture”.

“It is an unjust profiling of a people and culture as being barbaric and nefarious. It depicts a gang of murderers rampaging across the State,” she added.

Akinbile-Yussuf in her submission, stressed that “the Eyo Masquerade” as portrayed in the movie is “equally used as a symbol of honour for remarkable historical events”.

“It signifies a sweeping renewal, a purification ritual to usher in a new beginning, a beckoning of new light, acknowledging the blessings of the ancestors of Lagosians,” she opined.
