Iyana Tama Free

After significant pressure from multiple sources, both international and domestic, Hamisu Iyan Tama has been released on bail. His legal council and thousands of supporters were present at the Kano jail in which he was being held and judges were overwhelmed as the whole of Kano came to a stand still in an emotional show of solidarity for the movie star and political activist. While this is a significant victory for those who believe in justice and freedom, continued vigilance is required in order to ensure that the voice of the people will not be silenced and that those who attempt to do so will be held accountable. This aggregious and criminal event has been a wake up call for the people of Kano and we shall no longer stand quietly while the rights and freedoms of Nigerians are being abused.

We would like to thank the numerous visitors to this website and all the support you have provided. We shall continue fighting the good fight.

Our Mandate

This website is dedicated to shedding light on the unjust imprisonment of one of Nigeria's most beloved Hausa movie producers: Iyan Tama.

He was imprisoned for allegedly disregarding censorship laws imposed by the Kano Censorship Board on the Hausa movie industry.

His ground breaking movie, Tsintsiya, has in fact been approved at the federal level and is hailed by critics as an important landmark in the development of social peace in Nigeria.

Funded partially by the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria as part of an anti-violence and cultural tolerance campaign, Tsintsiya is a modern day Nigerian adaptation of the movie West Side Story.

Contact your local politicians, Nigerian embassies and media outlets to express your support for Iyan Tama and cultural peace and acceptance in Nigeria.
