Abuja – A group, Student in Nigeria Re-awakening Initiative (STINRI), on Thursday in Abuja, said it was set to premier a movie entitled “Dance of the Vipers” aimed at fighting terrorism in the country.
The Chairman, Board of Trustees of STINRI, Mr Nathan Oguwike, disclosed this at a news conference.
Oguwike, who was also the screenplay writer of the movie, said that the movie would expose the unattractiveness of terrorism.
He said that the aim was to dissuade young people from joining or being used by Boko Haram and its sponsors.
He added that “we want to use the movie to spread the message that Nigerians must resist any group who seeks to use intimidation as a means of gaining power.’’
He explained that the movie would also help the citizenry to take active steps toward fighting terrorism.
He said “the movie is a project anchored on strategic and responsible student participation in nation building.’’
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that “Dance of Vipers” is an epic movie set in pre-colonial Igbo community.
The movie is entirely a work of fiction that mirrors the present-day Nigeria with the message that Nigerians must resist the use of intimidation as means of gaining power.
Divided into six parts with each part containing 13 episodes, the movie will premier at the Silver Bird Cinema, Abuja, before the end of January. (NAN)
