Hot off the presses, we've received some worthwhile info about Nollywood director Obi Emelonye's follow-up to his 2011 fantasy/adventure hit The Mirror Boy - a film we also covered on S&A, titled Last Flight To Abuja, the expensive (by Nollywood standards) disaster/thriller, said to be inspired by true events; an airplane suffers major mid-air problems which leads to a fatal crash.
