Lagos AGN Faction Boss, Don Pedro, Inaugurates AGN Police
The Don Pedro Agabi-led faction of the Lagos State chapter of Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has inaugurated a task force aimed at check-mating pseudo and quark movie production outfits, which have been operating in the state. The task force was named 'AGN Police' and it is the first of its kind to be set up in the movie industry in Nigeria.
The 'AGN Police' was set up at the monthly general meeting of the guild held in Surulere, Lagos, in August 2013. The 10-man unit was sworn-in in by the guild in the presence of the Managing Director of the Lagos State Film and Video Censors Board, Mr Dele Balogun.
Speaking at the event, the factional boss of AGN Lagos, Don Pedro, said, “With this unveiling today, we are sending a strong warning to production houses that have made it a trade to dupe unsuspecting actors and actresses. The AGN Police outfit will be well equipped and empowered to flush out these quark production houses from Lagos state."
On his part, Balogun praised the initiative of the 'AGN Police' brought about by Don Pedro, stating that it is in line with government's plan to sanitise Lagos State. He promised to partner with them in their quest to make Lagos a true mega city.
According to him, "This is a wonderful initiative indeed, for you to practice as a doctor you must belong to the Nigeria Medical Association, invariably, for you to be an actor you should register with AGN Lagos Chapter.”
“I think the message is clear and Don Pedro Aganbi and his team are on course and they need every support" Balogun added.
The 10-man AGN police unit is currently undergoing training and re-orientation geared towards meeting the task ahead.
Earlier, the board of the Lagos State Film and Video Censor's Board paid a courtesy visit to AGN Lagos office where they had a deliberation with the state executive council and some industry stakeholders on issues that affect the movie industry in Lagos State.
