According to Premium Times, it was made known on Friday. The movie, which had been previously banned over partially taking place during the Biafran War, will be allowed to watch only by those 18 of age.

This movie, along with more than 70 other Nollywood films was tagged “18 and above” by the censorship board.

It would be recalled that the story with ban of “Half of a Yellow Sun” caused mass disappointment with the decision. Specifically, by the novel author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, who characterized the move as “absurd”.

Months after the controversies surrounding the novel-based film, it was finally approved as the one “fulfilling the regulatory conditions stipulated by the NFVCB”.
