Nigerians took to social media to react to cancellation of the film village in Kano by the Federal Government.

The Federal Government had planned releasing 1billion Naira for the kick off of the 20-hectare film village which some Islamic clerics led by Sheik Abdallah Usman Gadan Kanya, opposed.

According to the clerics,  the project is a plot to undermine Muslims and their religion by creating a hub for immorality.
