This is contained in a statement issued by the head of Corporate Affairs of NFVCB, Mike Ekunno.
A 2014 American political satire film, The Interview, directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg had generated controversy across the world for depicting the assassination of the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un.
According to the statement, the North Korean Ambassador in Nigeria, Jong Choi, expressed displeasure with the movie during a courtesy call to the NFVCB.
Mr. Choi was quoted as saying that the movie did not only misrepresent the developments achieved by his country but sought to portray and instigate negative global opinion against its leadership.
The ambassador therefore pleaded with the NFVCB to initiate action to mop the movie out of the Nigerian market, while also cutting the supply source.
