Nollywood actress Mary Remmy Njoku has waded into the controversy surrounding the blacklisting of actresses Iyabo Ojo and Nkechi Blessing Sunday by Theater Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN).
This is coming after TAMPAN in its notice suspending Iyabo Ojo, Nkechi Blessing accused the actresses of “reckless accusations, abuses, and embarrassment of our sector“.
The communique noted that an offence against one is an offence against all, adding that the association will no longer tolerate “infringements”.
The TAMPAN BoT further declared that its action against Iyabo Ojo does not mean it supports acts of criminal behaviour in whatever guise.
However, Njoku in an Instagram post, reacting to the ban, said that there was nothing like overreaction when there are allegations of rape or child molestation.
Mary expressed disappointment in TAMPAN while also commending the actresses for using their platforms to speak up against such acts.
