Nollywood producer Chioma Okoye is speaking out after she was allegedly beaten, detained unlawfully and threatened recently over the storyline of her new drama series called “Lagos Men”.

According to reports from her lawyer, the series is based on a true life story, however, an agreement was made between a woman (Name withheld), on whose life the story is based, and Chioma Okoye before production started.

The deal for the series was reportedly made back in 2014 and now that the drama series has been released, the affected lady has had a change of mind about publicly telling her story especially in view of the other lives that will be affected.

The series “Lagos Men” focuses on men, marital vows, secrets, scandals and more. According to the producer, the aim of telling the story of the woman was to help give her a voice and also to show what happens in the society with the hope of changing it.

The Producer was allegedly physically abused two weeks ago on the 12th of August, 2016 after her home was invaded by thugs allegedly sent by the woman on whom the series was based. According to reports, the services of the Police Inspector in Ajah Police Division were also employed to force producer Chioma Okoye to take down the series and stop further viewing. Chioma Okoye was also offered #3,000,000 to shut down the movie.

Chioma’s lawyer states “It must be clearly established that the film did not contravene any known law, statute, rules of motion pictures, injurious to reputation, slanderous or libelous. Rather it’s a story created to bring to life people’s rough tides, calculated at superb imagination engagement and to promote good societal values. We have taken steps to protect our client and we shall further seek redress in the court of law on her behalf. They should not conceive that the stupid chance they had on our client that faithful morning, their intimidation, coercion, and threat might deprive her of her rights and all this success, newly appreciated and newly illumined by her fans and the general public.”

    Which kind of country is this for crying out loud?

    A female producer is beaten by thugs sent by a WOMAN she’s trying to help by bringing her story to life. “the affected lady has had a change of mind about publicly telling her story especially in view of the other lives that will be affected”, oh, most probably, she has reconciled with her husband now and Chioma has become the enemy that wants to destroy her life abi?

    The police that are supposed to protect her are threatening her. Police Inspector, I hail o. Crime rates are increasing yet it is an innocent citizen you are threatening

    Please expose whoever this woman and the police inspector are.

    Chai, it’s times like this i wish i had the POWER to bring about justice.
