Piracy is a criminal act that threatens the very essence of our creative industry.
Persons have already begun pirating this labour of love. Some have been apprehended like in the photo, and we’re relentlessly pursuing others and bring them to book!
Our search includes persons downloading the movie from unauthorized sites, including telegram groups!
These actions are a grave impediment to Nollywood’s rightful place in the entertainment industry.
If you possess any information about individuals involved in producing or distributing pirated copies of Jagun Jagun, I implore you to share it with us immediately via DM or email.
We really have to protect Nollywood’s future and support legitimate creators.
While you are at it, subcribe to Netflix and stream Jagun Jagun now showing!
