The National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB), is gradually stepping up its game as they are leaving no stone unturned in the movie industry.

NFVCB which is the body for censoring movie in Nigeria, has been up and doing as they have approved 43 movies for public viewing in the month of April.

According to statement issued in Abuja by the Acting Head of Corporate Affairs, Caesar Kagho, said 19 of the films were produced in English, 14 in Yoruba, seven in Hausa, two in Ibibio, and one in Bini language.

Mr Kagho said, 16 of the movies, were classified for viewers under the 15 plus category as they had contents filled with strong language and violence.

These include; Pretty Liar (English), A Thousand Kisses (English), First Cause (English), Woli Agba (Yoruba), Bebi Pu Lofa (Yoruba) and Ijoba Osekan (Yoruba).

Mr Kagho said the remaining 26 movies had to be classified "18" as they contained very high levels of imitable techniques, fetish practices, strong language and drug abuse.

He added that only one of the movies, 'The Return of Baby Oku in America,' qualified to be placed under the Parental Guidance (PG) category.
