Nollywood actor, Charles Inojie has come out to react to a viral video of female and male Islamic students being flogged mercilessly and left with graphic cane marks by their Islamic teachers.

He recently shared his reaction on his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he sees it as a clear display of barbarism because there are other means of administering discipline no matter the offence committed.

Charles added that since the incident happened Ilorin, Kwara State Government must do everything possible to redeem itself before the whole world or risk raising hardened criminals.

His words, “How could any school authority find justification for this? Which parent would see SLIDE 4 and be able to sleep well at night, and to think that their teachers are there watching with glee and urging the assailants on is all the more heartbreaking.”

“Whatever offence they might have committed, the school should have other means of administering discipline than this brazen display of barbarism.”

“I hear this happened in Ilorin.
Oya, Kwara State government over to you. You have a duty to redeem yourself before the whole world otherwise you would only have succeeded in raising hardened criminals that would turn around to terrorise society tomorrow.”



Nollywood is a sobriquet that originally referred to the Nigerian film industry. The origin of the term dates back to the early 2000s, traced to an article in The New York Times. Due to the history of evolving meanings and contexts, there is no clear or agreed-upon definition for the term, which has made it a subject to several controversies.

The origin of the term “Nollywood” remains unclear; Jonathan Haynes traced the earliest usage of the word to a 2002 article by Matt Steinglass in the New York Times, where it was used to describe Nigerian cinema.

Charles Igwe noted that Norimitsu Onishi also used the name in a September 2002 article he wrote for the New York Times. The term continues to be used in the media to refer to the Nigerian film industry, with its definition later assumed to be a portmanteau of the words “Nigeria” and “Hollywood”, the American major film hub.

Film-making in Nigeria is divided largely along regional, and marginally ethnic and religious lines. Thus, there are distinct film industries – each seeking to portray the concern of the particular section and ethnicity it represents. However, there is the English-language film industry which is a melting pot for filmmaking and filmmakers from most of the regional industries.
