“When I got back, I had to do a film on drug abuse but I concentrated on the rehabilitation aspect of it because I noticed that in Northern Nigeria, a lot of families have one or two people that are involved in the vice.”

He said he made the movie because of his realization that most people don’t know that victims of drug abuse can be taken to rehabilitation.

Nuhu also mentioned that he shot a movie on the violent extremism in the region and on how the youth are being radicalized and recruited into vices..
