Jude Idada Accuses Omoni Oboli of Stealing his ideas for her movies

Canada-based writer Jude Idada has accused Nollywood producer, director and actor, Omoni Oboli of copying his script for her new film, Okafor’s Law which is set to make its world debut at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

In an audio interview with TNS, he said that Omoni’s 2014 Being Mrs Elliot is also an idea she lifted directly from him without giving him due credit.
According to him, he sent her the first 50 scenes but she 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, he said despite the contract he had Omoni and her husband Nnamdi Oboli sign, they refused to pay him the agreed N750,000 or even give him credit.

He says he won't be suing her as doesn't want to taint her record. He only wants Nigerians to hear his own side of the story.
