Kate Henshaw Demands Justice For Jailed Kannywood Director, Sunusi Oscar

Veteran Nollywood actress – Kate Henshaw recently took to her Instagram page to seek justice for a Kannywood actor/director, Sunusi Oscar. According to Kate, Sunusi was arraigned for releasing a music video on YouTube without seeking the permission of Kano State’s Censors board.

The actress further disclosed that according to reports reaching her, the director had tried to defend himself in court that he was just the director of the video and had no hand in its distribution. She went on to reveal that her sources claimed that his refusal to support the incumbent government of Kano State is the crux of the entire issue.

In her words;

JUST IN:

This is Sunusi Oscar, a Hausa movie director. The Kano State Censorship Board headed by Ismaila Afakallah arrested him, took him straight to court and the judge refused him bail and Oscar was sent straight to prison..
His offence..?

That last month, he released a music video on YouTube without permission( is censorship board needed here?) and 4 years ago he released a Hausa music video into the market without censorship certificate…

Sunusi told the court, he was just the director of the videos, he is neither the artiste, producer/marketer who distributed the said videos.

Info reaching me is that his refusal to support the current administration of Ganduje is the reason behind this.

This is so so wrong and condemned in entirety.

Injustice to one, is injustice to all…
