Okafor’s Law: How Actress Omoni Oboli Tried to Intimidate Us – Raconteur Productions
The management of Raconteur Productions who accused a Nigerian movie producer and actress of theft has issued an official statement concerning the bone of contention.
Raconteur Productions, the outfit that got Omoni Oboli’s Okafor’s Law premiere stopped last Friday has explained that they didn’t do what they did out of selfishness but in the interest of stopping flagrant abuse of intellectual property in the industry.
Canada-based script writer, Jude Idada, had accused the actress of stealing his work to make ‘Okafor’s Law’.
The premiere of Okafor’s Law, which was scheduled for Friday, March 23, could not hold after a court injunction was obtained by the outfit, restraining Oboli, her Dioni Visions and FilmOne from screening the film or releasing it into Nigerian cinemas.
In a bid to shed more light on what led to the embarrassing shutdown of Okafor’s Law premiere, Raconteur Productions released a statement.
Read all they said below:
‘On behalf of the board of directors of Raconteur Productions, we would like to like to shed light on our case with the defendants.
‘The events of yesterday though unfortunate was our only option to prevent the ongoing abuse of our intellectual property. Several attempts were made to bring the parties to the discussion table. Three weeks ago they received a formal demand letter but chose to ignore it and instead tried to intimidate us into abandoning our case.
‘Our decision to seek legal redress is not a selfish one, the industry has been plagued with similar issues and in taking this stand, we hope that we speak for all established and aspiring creative who are struggling to get their voice heard. Victory in this will be victory for the industry and will foster a safer environment for the sharing of ideas.
Despite the F@r(€d cancellation of the premiere, the planned cocktail and after-party went ahead anyway with stars like Toyin Aimakhu, Ufuoma McDermott, Uche Jombo-Rodriguez, Annie Idibia, Ini Edo and others partying hard until very late in the night.
