It was a star-studded event at what was supposed to be the premiere of Omoni Oboli's "Okafor's Law" in Nigeria.

Omoni Oboli, Chioma Chukwuka, MO Abudu, Uche Jombo, Ini Edo, Lancelot Imaseun, Moses Babatope, Ufuoma McDermot, Kemi Lala Akindoju and Uduak Isong were among the celebrities in attendance.

The movie which was scheduled to premiere on March 24, 2017, at IMAX Cinema, Lekki Phase 1, was halted after Oboli, Dioni Visions and Filmone Distribution were served an injunction to stop the premiere and nationwide release of the movie.

Speaking at the event, an emotional Oboli 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.

Produced and directed by Oboli, the movie also stars  Richard Mofe Damijo, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Ufuoma McDermott, Kemi Lala Akindoju, Yvonne Jegede, Halima Abubakar,Mary Lazarus, Toyin Aimakhu, Ken Erics, Uche Nnaji, Betty Irabor, Tina Mba, Gabriel Afolayan, and Funke Bucknor.

Despite the ongoing controversy, Oboli and Babatope assured the guests that movie will debut on the scheduled nationwide release date, March 31, 2017.
