Nigerian music producer Samklef has claimed that the surge in ritual killings across the country by young men is a result of what they watch in Nigerian movies.

The popular music producer made this known via his Twitter page on Sunday, January 16, 2022.

"Igbo Nollywood, English and Yoruba movies are the reason why a lot of young boys are doing rituals. They keep promoting fetish stuff in all their movies," he tweeted.
