The Press Screening of The Department, held today, 20th January 2015 at the Filmhouse cinemas Surulere, Lagos. The Media drawn from the electronic, print and online entertainment sites were treated to the world of Corporate espionage at its finest, embedded in romance. There was no dull moment at all, as they had their eyes riveted on the big screen, cheering and applauding in scenes where they found truly remarkable and of course being entertained by the side, with pints of comic relief.
O.C Ukeje, Saheed Funky Mallam, Somkele Iyamah and Uduak Oguamanam (co-producer of The Department) were present.
The Department, a must watch romantic/crime based movie from the stables of Inkblot productions in association with Closer Pictures has been slated for theatrical release on 30th January 2015.

Two lovers, Tolu and Nnamdi, opt out of The Department and get married. They’ve broken the rule, one which the department has refused to ignore. The pressure, intrigues, blackmail from the group, soon tests their love for each other.
