If reports by MaDailyGist are anything to go by, popular actress Stephanie Okereke-Linus may be going the path of her colleague, Omoni Oboli who was recently accused to stealing the script of a movie, Okafor’s Law; facing the law for stealing of a movie script story.
Stephanie has been fingered in the theft of her highly acclaimed film, Dry.

The accusation is coming from by lawyer and scriptwriter, Daniella Madudu who is demanding a suitable compensation of N60 million, and royalties, failing which a civil and criminal action will be taken against Stephanie Okereke-Linus and her associate, Joy Ndidi.
Joy Ndidi was on Miss Madudu’s team of readers and editors in 2011, the reports stated.
It was by the connection that Ndidi was said to have gotten hold of the original script, titled, Behind The Veil.
In the official court documents prepared by Lagos based solicitors, Rafiu Bello & co, Miss Madudu is requesting credits as owner of the original story, since a substantial part of Behind Her Veil was adapted for the movie Dry.
See a portion of the letter of demand below:
“We are ready to file the suit anytime from tomorrow as stated in the demand letter. We have only waited for the 14 days to lapse to offer an opportunity for Mrs. Okereke-Linus to settle the matter amicably. The ultimatum lapses today, June 2, 2017.”
