After weeks of not granting the producers of the movie adaptation of Chimamanda Adichie's award winning novel Half Of A Yellow Sun the certificate to allow Nigerians view it in local cinemas, actor and former president of the Actors Guild Of Nigeria Segun Arinze has called for the resignation of the head of Nigeria Film and Video Censors Board.

"Please tell Madam Patricia Bala of Nigeria Film and Video Censors Board to release the movie Half of a Yellow Sun. She has no reason to hold on to the movie. She has no right to censor the movie only to classify it. She saw it in Canada and even partnered with the producers in Canada during the premiere. What she is doing now is an embarrassment to government and a big insult to our dear industry, Nollywood. We are not in a military regime. She should kindly resign." - Segun Arinze
