“Ojukokoro was inspired by the state of events in Nigeria during 2014 elections with the general state of greed in the nation due to the upcoming elections. It is an ensemble cast movie that deals primarily with a heist, which is an avenue that is rarely explored in Nollywood Cinema. This film is set to raise the bar in filmmaking in Nigeria and will be showing at Genesis Cinemas nationwide from 17th March. Ojukokoro is a Yoruba word, translated as greed in English language. “Ojukokoro ” movie is a story of a money-strapped manager of a money laundering petrol station who decides to rob the petrol station that employs him but along the line finds out that that he is not alone in his ambition. The movie teaches that there are many different kinds of criminals and a good reason isn’t always a right one. Watch the trailer below;
