Actress Omoni Oboli Celebrates Victory Over Copyright Infringement Lawsuit On Her Movie Okafor's Law


In 2017, Nollywood actress and filmmaker Omoni Oboli was sued by a Canada-based writer, Jude Idada for copyright infringement because she named her movie Okafor's Law.
Jude accused Omoni of stealing his story and idea for the movie. The case was in court for two years.

She wrote

@omonioboli
VICTORYYYYYYYYYYYY 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻
Glory be to God who gave us the victory!
I am happy to announce to you all that today 2nd of May, judgement was passed and we won the case that Raconteur productions and Jude Idada brought against us and @filmoneng for Okafor’s Law
It’s been 2 years!
I remembered how I was shamed and all the names I was called!
I remember I was at Tiannah’s place putting finishing touches to my dress on my way to my movie premiere when I was called that we had been served an injunction and we couldn’t show our movie.
It was one of the worst days of my life! I remember breaking down in tears when I had to explain to a hall full of guests why they couldn’t watch the film.
I was called a thief! May God never allow anyone label you a thief for your own work. I cried, I prayed, I fasted, I kept the watch with my friends and relatives. I lost 5kg in a space of 3 days. I was in the toilet every 30 minutes. It took its toll!
But God never sleep nor slumbers. God knew I was innocent of everything I was being accused of and today even the laws of the land have pronounced me innocent. Details of the verdict coming shortly.
Thank you to my winning team! My lawyers Alegeh and Co, @menaajakpovi. You are my heros.
Thank you to my friends and family who moved into my home, called everyday, kept the watch, forced me to at least drink peppersoup when I couldn’t keep anything down for days! Did everything to make sure I didn’t go into depression. To my fans and everyone who stood by me. You know yourselves! I love you from the bottom of my heart!
My king and my God. THANK YOU!
I have been vindicated! 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻
