Canada-based writer, Jude Idada claims Nollywood actress and producer, Omoni Oboli stole his script for her new film, Okafor’s Law which is set to make its world debut at the Toronto International Film Festival (TFF).
In an audio interview with TNS, Idada said that Omoni’s 2014 ‘Being Mrs Elliot’ is also an idea she lifted directly from him without giving him due credit.
According to Jude, he sent Omoni the first 50 scenes but the actress later changed her mind saying they found a better script only for him to watch his own movie’s premiere in Paris in 2014.
In Okafor’s Law, Jude said despite the contract he had Omoni and her husband, Nnamdi sign, they refused to pay him the agreed N750,000 or even give him credit.
Jude also said he won’t sue the actress as he doesn’t want to taint her record. He only wants Nigerians to hear his own side of the story.
