Stephanie Linus Tied To N100Million Naira Lawsuit
Stephanie Okereke-Linus has just been served with a lawsuit worth 100 million Naira.
The lawsuit comes shortly after Daniella Madudu accused Linus of stealing the story line for the 2015 movie "Dry," from her original literature, "Behind Her Veil."
The filmmaker has refuted the claims, but Miss Madudu is not backing down.
The suit was reportedly filed a few days before Okereke-Linus issued an official statement.
The legal documents reportedly reveal several claims against Okereke-Linus, including the writ of summons and the statement of claims which was shared on social media.
These documents show extensive evidence of the overwhelming similarities between Daniella Madudu’s book "Behind Her Veil" and Linus’ movie "Dry'.
Both stories revolve around marriage, childbirth and VVF.
"Dry" is Stephanie Linus' multi award-winning movie, which focuses on Vesicovaginal fistula condition and girl child marriage, narrating the story of a 13-year-old Halima.
