News of Omoni Oboli’s movie “Okafor’s Law” has been making headlines for a while now as a man known as Jude Idada stepped out to say Omoni had stolen his work.

The exparte order had consequently halted the premiere of “Okafor’s Law” at the IMAX Cinema in Lagos, as well as suspending its planned release on March 31.

The judge had issued the orders, following an exparte motion filed by a company Raconteur Production Ltd, on behalf of a Canada based script writer, Mr Jude Idada, seeking same reliefs.

However, the Nollywood actress who seems to not be bothered went about with her business of promoting the movie as well as getting so many fans engaged in what the movie stands for and more.

Omoni Oboli’s film, Okafor’s Law was supposed to be premiered to thousands of guests who gathered at IMAX Cinema, Lekki Lagos last Friday, 24th March but the planned event was suspended when a court injunction obtained by Raconteur Productions restricted the movie from showing.

However, there is now good news for Omoni Oboli’s camp and fans because the injunction was lifted today, 30, March 2017 by Justice N. Buba of the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos.

In a short ruling, Justice Ibrahim Buba lifted the injunction, and paved way for the release and launch of the film, after entertaining arguments from both counsel to the plaintiff and defendants.

The movie, Okafor’s Law will now be showing nationwide in all cinemas from Friday, March 31, 2017.
