Drama surrounding Nollywood Producer, Omoni Oboli’s new movie, Okafor’s Law continues as Justice Ibrahim Buba of a Federal High Court in Lagos issues an Anton Piller order, directing the seizure of the movie.
Based on an ex parte application filed by a company, Rancoteur Productions Ltd, on behalf of a Canada-based scriptwriter, Mr Jude Idada, the court also issued an interim order, suspending the release and launch of the film, in any movie theatre or cinema house on March 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.
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.
The court, however, fixed March 29 for the hearing of the motion on notice.
