Court stops production of television series, Village Headmaster



The Federal High Court in Lagos has stopped Wale Adenuga Production Limited and its Chief Executive Officer, Wale Adenuga, from producing or publishing a television series, the Village Headmaster.

Justice Mohammed Liman ruled that the Anton Piller-type order would subsist pending the hearing of an interlocutory injunction.

An Anton Piller order is made ex-parte (without notice) and requires a defendant or respondent to allow certain persons to enter his premises to search for documents and movable articles as are specified in the court order and to permit such documents or articles to be taken away.

The plaintiff, Olujimi Olusola, sued as the executor and beneficiary of the estate of Ambassador Olusegun Olusola.

The plaintiff is claiming proprietary rights to the series.

Wale Adenuga Production, Chief Adenuga and the Nigeria Television Authority are the defendants in the suit.
