The Arbitration is a 2016 Nigeria romantic drama film, written by Chinaza Onuzo, directed by Niyi Akinmolayan, and produced by Chinaza Onuzo, Omotayo Adeola, and Zulu Oyibo. The film stars OC Ukeje, Adesua Etomi, Iretiola Doyle and Somkele Iyamah-Idhalama.
Gbenga (OC Ukeje), is a charming entrepreneur, running a very profitable tech company, and is the defendant in a law suit filed by Dara (Adesua Etomi), a computer engineer, whose talent helped Gbenga’s company acquire the height it’s reached. Both colleagues were lovers whose relationship ended when Gbenga discovered his wife (Beverly Naya) was pregnant with their supposed-to-be first child. Her lawsuit seeks compensation for those accounts, but the too ambitious Dara is strongly strongly trying to get Gbenga to admit he’d raped her while she was in a drunken state
Produced by Inkblot Productions, the film was released in Nigerian cinemas on 12 August 2016. It also premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.
