Filmmakers have been warned to follow normal procedures in getting approval from the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) management, before using corps members’ uniform in their movies.
The warning was given by Mr Christian Oru, NYSC Assistant Director of Legal Services, during a meeting between National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) and creative industry stakeholders in Lagos.
According to Oru, the corp will no longer tolerate the illegal use of its uniform in movies.
“We also demand that you submit your script to us for proper vetting to know how NYSC will be represented.
“We know the script is your copyright and we will do everything to ensure confidentiality.”
