Having premiered last week at Genesis Cinemas, Palms Mall, Lekki, Three Thieves opened in cinemas nationwide on Friday, October 4, 2019.

It was a night of fun and laughter, as Trino Motion Pictures hosted guests, celebrities and influencers including, Taiwo Ajayi Lycett, Frank Donga, Charles Okocha, Enado Odigie, Shawn Fuqua, Koye kekere-Ekun, Omotunde Adebowale, Ayoola Ayolola, Lasisi Elenu and Damilola Ogunsi.

To match the theme of the premiere, Naija Street Hustle, different guests made diverse interpretations in their outfits, which varied from ragged jeans and dungarees with sneakers to ankara and even complete agbada set. The venue set up had an exciting graffiti design reflecting that of an abandoned building; it was no surprise that it became the photo station for all in attendance.


In the spirit of celebrating Nigeria’s independence, the amazing comedy movie, Three Thieves addresses a topical issue; that is, the reality of the present Nigerian youth. It tells the story of three young men who are frustrated with their current employment and then start to rationalise theft since no one will be harmed, especially as they stand a chance to make millions of naira. The movie is however clear on the message that crime is never an option.

“I believe the timing of the movie’s release is perfect as it puts to picture the mind set of our youth who are underpaid or unemployed and can be tempted to step out of their moral compass. Nevertheless, I applaud the movie for portraying that crime has no excuse whilst giving me a good laugh,” said a guest who gave his name as Samuel Dike at the premiere.

Directed by Udoka Oyeka, and written by the fantastic trio Egbemaawei Sammy, Abba Makama and Africa Ukoh, Three Thieves is a must watch that promises to leave you entertained.
