Editi Effiong, the director behind ‘The Black Book,’ had previously shared the challenges he faced in obtaining necessary permissions from the Nigerian police and Armed Forces in September 2020.

His involvement in the End SARS campaign had raised concerns, but he persisted, stating, “I’d leave the panel on Tuesday and fly to Abuja on Wednesday for meetings with police, Army, or Airforce. On one of the visits to DIV 1 in Kaduna, a senior officer spotted me and identified me as that ‘Endsars guy’…”

Effiong also expressed his gratitude to Richard Mofe-Damijo, who not only stars in the lead role of ‘The Black Book’ but also serves as one of the executive producers. Mofe-Damijo’s influence played a pivotal role in smoothing the path to obtaining necessary permissions.

‘The Black Book,’ an ultimate revenge story, is currently captivating audiences worldwide as it continues to stream on Netflix, cementing its status as a global sensation in the world of cinema.
