Nollywood actress and producer, Omoni Oboli on Friday canceled the premiere of her movie ‘Okafor’s law’.
The premiere which was supposed to hold in Lekki was canceled after she was an injunction earlier on Friday.
A production company, Raconteur Productions had filed a suit against her alleging that she infringed on writer, Jude Idada‘s intellectual property.
Idada claimed that ‘Okafor’s law’ was his original idea which Oboli allegedly stole without giving him credit.
The actress who was visibly shaken and in tears, in a speech insisted the the film was her idea.
She said, “I’m sure some of you heard some allegations sometime ago but it is my story, my script and my movie. It was written 100 per cent by me…”
This means that barring some changes, the film originally scheduled for cinemas on March 31 will have to wait a little longer.
"We got a court injunction by 5pm" – #OmoniOboli says amidst tears as she explains that the Nigerian premiere of her much publicised movie, #okaforslaw was halted by Court Injunction. She however reassured fans and friends that the movie will still hit the cinemas soon. In her words, she wrote the script and the whole idea of the movie's solely hers. Via @yawnaijaent
