The director, Editi Effiong, had earlier shared how daunting getting the necessary permissions from the Nigerian police and Armed Forces was back in September 2020.
He shared how his involvement during the End Sars campaign almost posed a limitation for him. In his words, “I’d leave the panel on Tuesday and fly to Abuja on Wednesday for meetings with police, Army or Airforce. On one of the visits to DIV 1 in Kaduna, a senior officer spotted me and identified me as that “Endsars guy”…”.
Effiong further shared how grateful he was for Richard Mofe-Damijo, who plays the lead role in The Black Book, helped cushion things for the permissions by virtue of his role as one of the executive producers.
The ultimate revenge story is currently streaming on Netflix.
