Today, Thursday, March 30, 2017, Justice N Buba of the Federal High Court, Ikoyi , lifted an injunction that was supposed to prevent "Okafor's Law" from screening in cinemas.

According to the judge, there isn't enough evidence to sustain the previously acquired injunction by Raconteur Productions.

The court lifted the injunction stating that the copyright claim suit is yet to be determined by a competent court of law.

"Okafor's Law" will now make its debut in cinemas on March 31, 2017.

On March 24, 2017, the premiere of "Okafor's Law" which was scheduled to hold  at IMAX Cinema, Lekki Phase 1, was halted after Omoni Oboli, Dioni Visions and Filmone Distribution were served an injunction to stop the premiere and nationwide release of the movie.

 

The complaint was filed by Raconteur Productions following the copyright infringement accusations leveled against Oboli in September 2016 by Canada-based writer, Jude Idada.

However, the case is still in court and a hearing has been scheduled for April 3 or April 4, 2017.
