Nollywood actress, producer and director, Omoni Oboli has been granted permission to go ahead with the cinema release of her film, Okafor’s Law by a Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi.
Justice Ibrahim Buba gave this ruling on Thursday, March 30, after considering the arguments of the plaintiff (Raconteur Productions) and the defendants (Omoni Oboli, Dioni Visions Entertainment and FilmOne Distribution).
The judge, in doing this, removed the interim injunction stopping the release of the film as filed by Raconteur Productions.
He said that the film can be released as planned into Nigerian cinemas tomorrow, Friday, March 31, 2017, but that the parties involved should choose a date for continuation of the hearing between April 3 and 4, 2017.
Recall that Okafor’s law failed to screen at the Cinema last week due to copyright infringement.
