A movie that proffers solution to the perennial communal clashes we have in Nigeria is being shot presently in three locations.

Nollywood diva, Omotola who plays the role of Princess Fadekemi and Yemi Blaq who plays LOWO turned the militant Owuteru and others have been busy at the different locations in ilesha, Ibadan and in Lagos.
According to Yemi Amodu, the movie dotted with love and inter communal marriage, it unravels the conflicts in inter communal clashes and how best to handle them. “Shadow Parties is a crime thriller and we are presently at Irin-Ijesha with the casts shooting the thriller movie. Owuteru (Yemi Blamovie, the leader of the warriors of Iludun and Fadekemi (Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde), the princess of Aje was kidnapped by him with the aim of killing her to avenge the killing of Akinola (Rotimi Salami) who comes from Iludun. But the power of love brings the complication which later resolve the conflict. We’re rounding up the shooting in November.”
The movie encapsulates the endless political intrigues that would later transform into blood business of arms and ammunitions and of course the killings of innocent residents.
