The TAMPAN committer on ethics, conflicts and resolution wishes to inform the general public that the association has summoned Mr Yomi Fabiyi who is the producer and director of the controversial film titled ‘Oko Iyabo’ to appear before it on Thursday 11th July 2021.
The invitation becomes very necessary because of the controversy that the subject matter of the film has generated which is against our ethics and virtue.
Despite that, we realise that the film sparked off another round of dissension between Tampan and the public, this is unacceptable to us and unsuitable to what we represent.
We hereby imply the general public and the parties concerned to please exercise patience as our eminent association is on top of this issue and will certainly ensure fairness and justice
