InformAfrica – Last Flight To Abuja Nigerian movie is now available on Distrify for rental streaming. The movie stars Omotola Jalade Ekeinde (Queen of Nollywood), Hakeem Kae-Kazim, Jim Iyke, Ali Nuhu, Jide Kosoko, Celine Loader, Olumide Bakare, among others.
Last Flight To Abuja is based on true events. The movie was inspired by the series of plane crash tragedies that rocked the Nigerian aviation sector back in 2006.
Coincidentally, nearing the premiere of the movie last year; a passenger plane Dana Air flight, carrying more than 150 people crashed in Nigeria’s largest city-Lagos, killing all passengers on-board on June 3rd 2012. The crash is believed to have been caused by dual engine failure, subsequent forced landing, and lack of care for human lives by the flight management staff.
To show condolence, the director and producer of “Last Flight To Abuja“, Obi Emelonye, last year dedicated the movie to the victims of the ghastly plane crash(es). Here’s what his team had to say:
‘‘It is quite unfortunate that the plane crash occurred before the premiere of the movie. The movie is dedicated to all who lost their lives in the two ill fated crashes that involved Allied Air and Dana Air in Accra and Lagos.’’
Emelonye believes his film is a way of mounting pressure on the relevant agencies to tackle the problem of flight irregularities and plane crashes in Nigeria, especially, given the fact that the issue of safety in African aviation sector has become a source of worry across the globe.
Last Flight To Abuja is the biggest West African box office hit of 2012, the longest running movie in Nigerian cinema history and the first of its kind Nigerian action thriller, set on a plane and featuring Africa’s biggest movie stars.
The movie stars A-list actors: Omotola Jalade Ekeinde (Queen of Nollywood), Hakeem Kae-Kazim, Jim Iyke, Ali Nuhu, Jide Kosoko, Anthony Monjaro, Uche Odoputa, Uru Eke, Jennifer Oguzie, Celine Loader, and Olumide Bakare.
