Actress, Omoni Oboli has asked her fans to shower prayers on her family after losing her father who died in a car accident.

The movie producer who recently celebrated her 39th year birthday wrote about the loss on Instagram yesterday as she hoped to find comfort in God.

This is coming three weeks after another Instagram post where she reminisced about a good time she had with her father in Asaba, Delta State, where she was promoting her new movie, "Okafor's Law".

"Throw back Tuesday with my biggest otinkpu! Still a daddy's girl!  He made sure Asaba was lit for us!

"Thanks dad ❤ My dad has seen all my movies and he thinks #OkaforsLaw is the best so far."

Before this, Oboli had faced some challenges following a court order in March 2017 ordering the seizure of the movie around the time it was expected to be premiered.

This was due to a copyright infringement and trademark violation suit filed by Raconteur Productions Ltd. which claimed that she hijacked the film story from writer, Jude Idada.

A ban restricting the actress from continuing with the premiere of the movie was however lifted following a counter suit.

A further hearing concerning the copyright infringement battle has been adjourned till May 17, 2017.
