Omoni Oboli, a Nollywood actress expressed her frustration three days ago on Instagram over constant disturbance from hoodlums who keep extorting money from her at her film set locations.
She narrated in her caption that one of the hoodlums broke bottle to stab one of her crew member and seized her van keys.
Omoni appeals with the Lagos Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode to come to their aid and enforce security for film makers because they are tax paying citizens and should not be constantly threatened by these group of hoodlums from time to time.

#CurrentSituation I am totally fed up! Shooting in Lagos State is such a difficult experience. I've been settling area boys everyday yet they still fight us. The other day, they broke a bottle to stab my crew and seized my van key. You have to settle different factions. I'm a tax paying citizen of Lagos State. As filmmakers, we pay taxes even on a loss. Na beg we dey beg o @akinwunmiambode help us. We are fed up!!! So many people are getting paid on this set. We are bringing commerce and boosting the economy. Pls help!!! My money is not for area boys! They think it's their birthright! It's indeed very sad! 😩😩😩😩😢😢😢 #ASaferLagosForWork #WeNeedHelp
