“I had panic attack over the piracy of my latest movie” – Toyin Abraham


Popular Nollywood actress and producer, Toyin Abraham, has disclosed that she had a panic attack upon discovering that her most recent hit film, Maliaka, had been pirated.

The producer said she was hospitalized many times as a result of her panic attacks, speaking with reporters in Lagos as police detained five people related to the piracy.

Toyin Abraham said that the movie gulped N500 million in production and that she has joined the battle against pirates as a result of her experience. She praised the personnel of the Nigeria Police Force for arresting the perpetrators, praising in particular AIG IG Idowu Owohunwa for acting on their words.


Two ladies have been detained in connection with the piracy of Malaika, according to a statement made earlier by the Federal Criminal Investigation Department, or FCID, in Alagbon, Ikoyi, Lagos.

A spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FCID), ASP Aminat Mayegun, accused the suspected pirates of conspiracy, intellectual property infringement, piracy, and cybercrimes linked to the unauthorized use of cyberspace for the movie’s broadcast while presenting them to reporters at the FCID headquarters in Alagbon.

“Following the receipt of the petition, a joint investigation involving the Special Investigation Units of the Anti-Fraud and Cybercrime Sections of the Department was launched, while the unique intelligence and cybercrime assets of the Force were optimally deployed,”

she added.
