Omotola’s Hospital Under Threat In ‘Lockdown’ Trailer

by Adeoya Femi

Moses Inwang, Nigerian film producer, has put out the trailer for ‘Lockdown’, his forthcoming movie, billed to hit cinemas across the country on May 28.

The less than three-minute video begins with the arrival of a foreign national to Lagos state before anxiety ensued after he was believed to have contracted COVID-19.

It also sees Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, who heads an hospital in the movie, reflecting on the struggles herself and other health workers had to face in a bid to respond to the pandemic.

Omotola’s hospital would soon become the subject of attack from thugs who are bent on invading the premises over poor handling of their people taken there for treatment.

Amid the ensuing drama, the police intervened and shut the hospital to resort normalcy.

The star-studded movie features several heavyweights including Sola Sobowale, Emem Inwang, Chioma Akpotha, Tony Umez and Deyemi Okanlawon.

Others are Ini Dima-Okojie, Jide Kene Achifusi (Swanky JKA), Nobert Young, Josh 2 Funny, Yomi Black, BamBam, Ada Ameh, Ben Touitou and Charles Awurum.

In an Instagram post yesterday, Inwang revealed that the movie was originally scheduled for premiere at the NollywoodWeek Paris Film Festival.

He, however, said the project would no longer be screened at the event due to post-production delay.

“It saddens me to announce that my latest film, Lockdown, will no longer open or premiere at the NollywoodWeek Paris Film Festival due to a delay in post-production,” he wrote.

“It’s a disappointing situation for me given how highly I regard the festival and how much people in the diaspora would have loved this film because of it’s timely theme, one that is affecting everyone worldwide.

“I’ve had a couple of films in selection in previous editions but it would have been a great honour to open the festival this time.

“As for ‘Lockdown’, one of the best films you all will see this year and for a lifetime, it will definitely be out in Nigerian cinemas nationwide from May 28th.”
