Popular movie producer, Ifeanyi Onyeabor, who was arraigned before a Lagos High Court in Ikeja over alleged theft of N8.8 million by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has asked the court to strike out the charge preferred against him.
Onyeabor, who is the Managing Director of Igo Motion Pictures International, was charged to court for allegedly swindling one Mr Steven Okomah of N8.8 million under the guise of helping him to produce two movies.
Mr. Steven having felt bad of the whole scenario, reported the case to the EFFC. While the case was on going, the producer appealed to the court to strike out the case as they have both agreed to settle it out of court.
"The complainant (Okomah) says he is no longer interested in the case and the EFCC should discontinue the prosecution. There was a mistake based on misinformation and the parties have resumed their cordial business relationship. The production of the two movies which led to the dispute has almost been completed in Ghana," F.H. Awalah, counsel Ifenayi said.
