EFIWE GISTS: Swiss Government Gives Nollywood Actor Charles Okafor N168 Million For New Movie


The Switzerland Government has given veteran Nollywood actor, Charles Okafor $450,000 USD( N168 Million) to do a movie that centers on the dangers of living illegally in Europe.

The new movie which is exclusively sponsored by the State secretariat for Migration (SEM) will be aired on Nigerian television stations.


Speaking on behalf of a spokesperson, Lukas Rieder, the authority revealed that one of the causes of illegal migration is the lack of information or false information.

“Human traffickers tell potential migrants that Switzerland is paradise, it’s El Dorado. But that’s not true. We want to provide objective information about the dangers of passage, and the dangers of living in Switzerland.”

The movie which is titled Missing Steps tells the story of a 20-something university-educated protagonist. He gets into debt and flees to the landlocked European state to solve his financial problems, with the help of traffickers.

But he is denied asylum by the Swiss authorities, and deported to his own country – poor, isolated and unhappy.
