Lagos - Nigeria's highest grossing cinema movie of all time, 30 Days in Atlanta, has been hijacked by film pirates.
The pirates are now selling copies of the movie on the streets of Lagos, and the brain behind the film comedian AY Makun has written a letter to the Inspector General of Police (IGP).
In the letter he said that the success of the film has quickly turned to sorrow as 30 Days in Atlanta is being sold by dubious marketers in Alaba.

He said that nothing has been done to get the pirated copies off the street even after he had contacted the right authorities.
AY said that no more should a miscreant be celebrated or allowed to rape intellectual properties of honest hardworking citizens with impunity while the owners of the property impotently look on.
He said that no more should movie producers and other intellectual property owners scrabble to quickly make the little they can before ‘Alaba boys’ get their hands on the content and turn a goldmine into a dunghill.
