In tears, Omoni Oboli cancels ‘Okafor’s Law’ movie premiere after served a court injunction for allegedly stealing story (Video)

 

Following an injunction which was served to Omoni Oboli, Dioni Visions and Filmone Distribution, the scheduled screening of “Okafor’s Law” didn’t hold yesterday.

Addressing the invited guests at the IMAX Cinema, the filmmaker broke down in tears as she stated that the script and movie were created ‘100 %’ by her.

She further described the court injunction as bullying and abuse of the law.

She was supported on the stage by MO Abudu, Kemi Lala Akindoju, Chioma Chukwuka, Ufuoma McDermott among others.

Sometime in September 2016, Omoni Oboli was accused of copyright infringement for the Okafor’s Law title she gave her movie, by a Canada based writer, Jude Idada. The Nollywood actress Omoni Oboli was also accused of stealing his story and idea for her new movie “Okafor’s Law.”
Idada revealed this in an exclusive interview with TNS. He also stated that Oboli  copied his idea for her directorial debut, “Being Mrs Elliott.”

However, the actress/producer maintained her silence and went on to promote and allegedly set a release date for the movie for March 31st with the premiere yesterday, but the matter was taken to court for the copyright infringement and trademark violation.

So yesterday, an injunction was gotten to prevent Okafor’s Law premiere and the release on the 31st of March.
