The Kano State Film and Censorship Board says it is set to monitor the Hausa YouTube channels in order to guard against immorality in the state, NAN reports.

The Executive Secretary of the board Isma’il Naabba, made this known on Thursday in an interview with NAN in Kano.

“It has become imperative to sanitise the space, as many movie makers have found an escape route to showcase their immorality since they were not censored,” Mr. Naabba said. “In line with the aim of the board, we invited YouTube channel operators, who upload Hausa movie contents, to create better understanding.”

“We made it clear to them that everyone must henceforth bring his/her film to the board for censoring before uploading on these channels,” he said.

Mr. Naabba, who warned that the board would sanction all defaulters, urged them to always contact the board for advice and clarifications.

While soliciting for the public support, the executive secretary warned the operators to cooperate with the board to achieve its aims.
