In a statement, the Lagos State Government charged that the makers of the film “Gangs of Lagos” had made fun of Lagos’ cultural history.

The Lagos State Government has voiced its concern with the producers of the “Gangs of Lagos” film/series over cultural misrepresentation and for depicting the culture of Lagos State in a disparaging way, according to a statement published on the state’s official website.

According to a press release from the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture, Pharm. (Mrs.) Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf, the film/series is seen as a mockery of the heritage of Lagos by the Ministry as it is the regulatory body and guardian of Lagos State’s culture.

According to the statement, Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf said: “We are of the opinion that the production of the film ‘The Gang of Lagos’ is very unprofessional and misleading while its content is derogatory of our culture, with the intention to desecrate the revered heritage of the people of Lagos. It is an unjust profiling of a people and culture as being barbaric and nefarious. It depicts a gang of murderers rampaging across the State”
