On Friday, March 24, 2017, Omoni Oboli was served an injunction that halted the Nigeria premiere of her anticipated movie, "Okafor's Law."
At what was supposed to be the premiere of "Okafor's Law," the Group Executive Director of FilmOne, Moses Babatope, said the company is solidly behind the producer and director of the controversial movie, "Okafor's Law."
"Filmone Distribution and Filmhouse cinemas are firm behind Omoni Oboli and "Okafor's Law," he said.
"So, continue supporting African cinema," he added.
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.
The complaint was filed by Raconteur Productions. According to document, the actress will be guilty of contempt of court if she goes ahead with a premiere or release.
This injunction comes after a Canada-based writer, Jude Idada, accused Omoni Oboli of stealing his story and idea for the movie.
Oboli and Babatope assured the guests that movie will screen on the scheduled nationwide release date, March 31, 2017.
"Okafor's Law" premiered at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival.
