Investigative journalist, Tobore Ovuorie, best known for her 2014 investigative work, ‘Inside Nigeria’s Ruthless Human Trafficking Mafia’, has revealed the movie Oloture which was released on October 2, 2020, is her life story.
According to the journalist, who recently demanded $5,000,000 (about N225million) from entertainment firm, EbonyLife Films for stealing her story in an exclusive interview with PulseTV says Oloture was a case of the reporter becoming the story.
She also went about how her health diminished due to the trauma that came along working on the story. She further accused ebonylife of adapting her work without express permission.
Speaking to PulseTV, she said;
Oloture is my life story. As a result of a story, everything got scattered, I lost quite a lot. Relationship gone. Health got into a mess. You know what it means when you spend each of your savings to the last dime on meditations on injections. Even when the money isn’t available, I have to find every means to get the money because without the medication I can’t sleep. Then someone now picks your story makes it into a movie, lies it is their own idea. I can’t be silenced.
