Reprieve has come the way of Omoni Oboli as the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has lifted the order suspending the premiere and release of her new movie, Okafor’s Law.
The court said that the movie should not be prevented from showing or confiscated due to the fact that the copyright suit was yet to be determined by a competent court of law.
With the lifting of this injunction by Justice Ibrahim Buba, it is now possible for the movie to be released nationwide today 31st March.
The actress shared this good news on her Instagram page.
She said: “I am happy to let you all know that to the glory of the living God that we serve, the injunction has just been lifted and Okafor’s Law will now be showing in all cinemas nationwide.”
Recall that Oboli was sued by a Canada-based Nigerian, Jude Idada, who claimed the movie was his intellectual property which Oboli denied.
This publicity for Okafor’s Law may be good as it has no doubt increased the number of Nigerians who are interested in seeing the movie.
