Court Orders Seizure Of "Okafor's Law", Omoni Oboli's Film by floss001: 10:07pm On Mar 27, 2017
Justice Ibrahim Buba of a Federal High Court in Lagos has issued an Anton Piller order, directing the seizure of a film titled “Okafor’s Law” directed by Nollywood Producer, Omoni Oboli.

The court also issued an interim order, suspending the release and launch of the film, in any movie theatre or cinema house onMarch 31, pending the determination of a motion on notice before the court.

The judge ordered the seizure of all copies, materials, projections or infringing materials, relating to the subject matter.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the orders followed an ex parte application filed by a company, Rancoteur Productions Ltd, on behalf of a Canada based script writer, Jude Idada.
Idada lays claim to the film “Okafor’s Law” as his intellectual property.

The plaintiff had filed the suit through Anthony Idigbe, seeking an order, halting the premiere and release of the said “Okafor’s Law”, pending the determination of a copyright infringement suit filed against Oboli.

Joined as first to third defendants in the suit are: Dioni Visions Entertainment, Omoni Oboli, and The Filmore Ltd.

The plaintiff, in its exparte application, had sought an order, restraining the premiere or release of the said film, as well as an anton piller order, seizing all copies of the infringing material.

The exparte application was moved in terms by counsel from the law firm of Idigbe, O. Otudor, who urged the court to grant the orders as prayed.

Delivering his ruling on the exparte motion, Justice Buba granted the orders as prayed.

The court made the following orders:

“An order of interim injunction, restraining the first to third defendants, whether by themselves or their privies, from premiering the feature film “Okafor’s Law”, in Lagos or any part of Nigeria, pending the hearing of the motion on notice.

“An order of interim injunction, restraining the defendant from releasing the featured film in any movie theatre or Cinema house on March 31, pending the hearing of the motion on notice.

“An order of interim injunction, restraining the defendants from
distributing the featured film, pending the determination of the motion on notice.

“An Anton piller order is granted to the plaintiff, to enter into the defendant’s premises, Cinema, Studio and other places of dissemination, to seize all copies of infringing materials relating to subject matter.

“An order, directing the defendants to deliver and surrender to the plaintiff’s solicitors, all products and packages with the inscription, “Okafor’s Law” and volume of transaction or trade which have been done by defendants.

“An order directing the defendants to permit the court’s bailiff, and such other persons not exceeding four (4), to enter the premises on any working day of Monday to Saturday at 8am to 8pm, to remove all products or packages with the name “Okafor’s Law”

“An order for a search to be conducted at Viva Heights Odudu Eleyiwo St, Block 15, plot 17 Oniru Victoria Island, and Plot 1378D Joseph Namah close, off Karimu Kotun St, Victoria Island and all other places where Okafor’s Law is stored and sold

“An order declaring that a failure of defendants to comply with the court’s order, will put the plaintiff at liberty to apply for committal to prison of such person,”

The court thereafter, fixed March 29 for hearing of the motion on notice.

NAN reports that the movie “Okafor’s Law” is billed for release on March 31,

The court’s order was, however, served on the defendants on the evening of March 24 shortly before the movie’s premiere.atthe IMAX Cinema in Lagos.

The order consequently, clogged the premiering of the debut movie.

Jude Idada had accused Oboli of copyright infringement on the “Okafor’s Law” movie, adding that she had stolen his story idea for the movie in September 2016.

He alleged that Oboli took the work he had done regarding “Okafor’s Law”, and developed it without giving him due credit.

He avers that the producer, however, went ahead to set March 31, as a release date for the movie, in spite of a demand letter sent to her, as well as a copyright infringement suit instituted.

NAN reports that “Okafor’s Law” stars: Richard Mofe Damijo, Toyin Aimakhu, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Ken Erics, Yvonne Jegede, Halima Abubakar, Gabriel Afolayan, Funke Bucknor among other Nollywood actors and actresses.

Oboli is a popular Nollywood Producer, actress, Director and script writer.

News like these excite me.

These females have to learn how to act.

Toke Makinwa is next. They feel they are too diva to bother about court cases. The law isn't looking at your makeup laden faces dear.

You can't plagiarise or tarnish a person's image and hide behind your gender/makeup.

I bet when Maje's lawsuit kicks in, Toke will go to the press crying and acting like the victim. It's difficult to out-victim a woman in the court of public opinion (even with all the evidence in the world) but it's pretty easy to out-victim them in the court of law.

I'll love to see how Toke will keep her face when she comes out to the press to cry after the court orders seizure of all the copies of her book.

"100mill in the account" for Maje!

I told you to run along but you are a bad listener, I get it.

You come across as a woman child with learning disability and a severe case low of self esteem.

You can't stand the truth. Logic is alien to you. Will I join issues with a sub-adult? No! Not until you act matured and understand its concomitant responsibility.

I would tell you to run along again but you wouldn't. So stick around female. You aren't useful anywhere else anyway!

She should settle out of court with the guy and place him on percentage. The deed has been done, millions invested on the movie.


My thought though!

Omoni Oboli what really happened Let's hear your version.
I don't want to say much yet but a lot of story writers have being in tears over the years!

Some untold stories of how they were asked to submit their write-up only for the stories to be made into movies without acknowledgement, reference or payment for their stories which by the way is making you guys popular while they remain in the dark!



A similar case was that of Domitila(real name) and Zeb Ejiro. I hope many of you remember that movie Domitila claimed that Zeb promised to pay her for using her name which was associated with prostitution in the movie. It was a true life story which was very popular then.

Zeb never did. It cause a lot of uproar then but out of stigmatization then Domitila left! And that was the end of Domitila.

So to all movie makers, if you are using other people's sweat/material, include them in your payroll cause when they are encouraged, they will be motivated to write a better script.


I know you all remember the recent Majek Fasek...
There should be organization in Nollywood! The body governing Nollywood should say something.
Before approving the movie, did they carry out their assignments thoroughly SMH


I wish the truthsayer the very best!
