The Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) has announced the suspension of Yomi Fabiyi for producing a controversial movie “Oko Iyabo.”
In reaction to the suspension by the association, Yomi said he was originally a member of the Association of Nigeria Theatre Arts Practitioners (ANTP) and not a member of TAMPAN.
He said: “I am originally an ANTP member, worst case I will renew my membership there.
“I have never obtained or signed any form with TAMPAN or joined any guild. I was made to pay for registration which I did but no form collected or formal procedure.
“The letter is inappropriate, not valid for me as a Filmmaker. Any reaction if necessary will be on the basis of Human Rights Violation if I so wish to seek judicial redress. You don’t lose what you never had.”
