A certain young boy Chidi (OLATEJU OYELAKIN) is down with intense headache on campus and his friends are taking care of him. Chidi’s headache doesn’t s stop, so his friends take him back to his family so that they can take him to their family doctor.

Chidi’s parents take him to the family doctor. The doctor assures them that it is school pressure that is affecting their son, but Chidi’s mother- Ijeoma (SOLA SOBOWALE) doesn’t agree to it. Chidi’s father Dike (RICHARD MOFE DAMIJO) suggests that they fly him abroad but the doctor tells him that it would still be the same result since he doesn’t see any major problem in Chidi..
Chidi’s parents are unable to concentrate on their business again; they stay with their son who is at the point of death. Their aunty (BUKKY AJAYI) who has spiritual sight comes to visit them and immediately senses the abomination that child has committed. She tells Chidi’s parents that he has done the unimaginable. Dike pleads with their aunty to tell them what Chidi has done, but she replies that Chidi needs to confess himself else both she and Chidi will drop dead. Chidi’s parents are puzzled and wonder how grievous his offence is. They plead with Chidi to confess but he refuses and tells them he has no idea of what they are saying. Chidi tries to walk away but his dad orders him back. Chidi with remorse suddenly remember his university days…

FLASHBACK
Dike (RICHARD MOFE DAMIJO) is dining with his friends. They all discuss the new trend in the university. Dike expresses anger over universities that require a child’s parent to come in person to sign such child’s guarantor; including the University of Lagos where Chidi will be starting newly. His friends tell him there is nothing wrong with it as it is a way to guarantee the child’s behaviour. Dike vouches for his son- Chidi and tells his friends that though his son is young- about 15 years old, but he is well behaved and will not do anything wrong. Dike calls the office of the VC of the University of Lagos, but he is unavailable, so he leaves a message for him to call him back when he returns.

Dike finally gets across to the VC of University of Lagos and explains how busy he and his wife- Ijeoma are. He pleads with him to guarantee his son- Chidi and assures him that he will not misbehave; after much consideration, the VC agrees.
Chidi while in school parties with his friends who are either smoking or drinking. He is having so much fun even though he knows the time is 2:00 am and he should be back in the hostel. He therefore mimics his mum’s words ‘Chidi make sure you are back by 7pm’ and then laughs it off. He toasts to his freedom and his friends offer him cigarette but he turns it down. Chidi requests for a dance from a lady (BIMBO AKINTOLA) who initially turns him down because he is a new student, but then grants his request seeing his confidence.

One of Chidi’s new friend- Lami (……….) and roommate advises him to join their cult that they will protect him and no lecturer will be able to mess up with him without facing the consequences. Lami tells Chidi he can have whatever he wants at all time- girls, security but Chidi rejects his offer telling him that what he needs is just to face his studies and then graduate with a first class. Lami tells him that his cult group wants him and if he turns them down, they will make life miserable for him but Chidi warns that he will report them. Lami then tells Chidi his new girlfriend- Bimbo’s (BIMBO AKINTOLA) secret. The revelation startles Chidi, but he refuses to believe Lami. Lami tells Chidi that if he joins their cult, he will be able to protect Bimbo.
Chidi approaches Bimbo to confirm what Lami knows about her but Bimbo tells him that it a rumour. Chidi tries persuading her to tell him the truth so that they can report the case to the VC, but Bimbo insists that she has no problem with anyone.

While returning from the library, Chidi and friends catch Bimbo leaving a lecturer’s office with tears all over her face. Chidi follows Bimbo to her room, gets angry with her for telling him lies. Bimbo then opens up to Chidi that her parents are doing all they can to send her to school and she can’t possible let it go. She tells Chidi that she doesn’t know why the man chooses to hurt only her out of the numbers of females in the school. Chidi consoles her and tells her not to cry again.

Chidi joins his roommates and in anger tells them the VC’s reply to him after reporting Bimbo’s case. He afterwards laments on the insufficient facilities, poor system of administration in the University among other things. After listening to Chidi, they stylishly give him reasons he should join their cult.
Chidi joins the cult. He has to pass three tests to be fully initiated into the brotherhood XG cult. His first test is to deal with the lecturer- Dr. Bright. Chidi and friends break into his office and destroy all his valuables and then warn him to stay clear of Bimbo, other girls or his family members and friends will pay for it.

The whole school is talking about the sudden change of the lecturer- Dr. Bright. Chidi visits Bimbo in her hostel and she tells him that the powerful lecturer has suddenly become weak. She tells Chidi how Dr. Bright apologized to her. Chidi encourages Bimbo to strive to graduate with a second class upper but she finds that amusing as she thinks that with a third class, she would still be happy. Chidi is disappointed at Bimbo’s words, so he leaves the room.
The leader of Brotherhood XG cult- Don tells Chidi his next test. Chidi replies that he can’t do it, but Don threatens to expose him to the VC of the University and his parents. He threatens to harm his sister first, then his parents before harming him if he tries to expose the cult to anyone. Chidi finally succumbs to going for the second task. He and his other cult members rob a dead woman at the graveyard. Chidi unhappy with what they are doing waits for them outside. He sights some people coming towards them- another cult group, and he alerts his friends. Chidi and his other cult members immediately run off and jump through the fence while the other cult group steals the remaining items of the dead woman.

Chidi’s supervisor- Gus for his second task is upset with him on the way he carried out the task, so he reports him to Don. Don pleads on his behalf but Gus is still not happy with Chidi’s attitude in the last task. Chidi’s issue continues to generate controversy between the Don and the deputy of the cult- Gus. Don tells his cult that Chidi along with the other boys will be initiated the next night which they all agree to it. They initiate Chidi and some other boys

Bimbo keeps noticing some changes on the way her lecturer- Dr. Bright now attends to her, she suspects Chidi of having a hand in the matter. She asks Chidi what he knows about it, but he instead jokes around the question. Bimbo suspects that Chidi is now part of the cult but Chidi denies being a part of it. Bimbo not certain that Chidi is telling her the whole truth tells him she would be disappointed with him if he joins the cult. Chidi soon develops an intense headache and falls on the floor.

Gus- the deputy of the cult is upset with Don and challenges him for giving the diamond ring stolen from the dead woman to Chidi. He tells don that Chidi should not get the diamond ring since he didn’t participate in the robbery. Don tries to make Gus understand the reason for his actions and the need to keep pulling Chidi closer but he turns deaf hears and walks out of Don in anger.
Chidi tells Lami that he doesn’t want the ring that he is ashamed to have been part of the task; Lami advices Chidi to sell the ring and keep the money. Chidi again develops an intense headache and he falls on the floor.
After much deliberation, Chidi with the help of his friends sell the ring after which he settles them financially. On Bimbo’s birthday, Chidi surprises her with a car. Bimbo while appreciating the gift asks Chidi his source of money for the car but he lies to her.

The Brotherhood X-gee cults are in a meeting and Gus is angry with all of them. Don unable to take his behaviour banishes him from the cult and from the school. Gus tells Don that he can’t banish him from the school but he is done with their group. Gus takes off his cap and bead and throws them on the floor signaling war to Don. He walks away and some of the cultists follow him while a few stay back in Don’s cult.

The next morning, Don and some other cult members are dies. The remaining cultist point fingers at Gus but he claims to know nothing about it. Gus and his new group make up their mind to find out the person behind Don’s death.
More cultists die in the boot of a car and they accuse Gus again of killing them. Gus maintains that he knows nothing about the death. In the midst of their argument, a fight ensues and Gus’s accuser is tortured. The other guy with Gus pulls out his gun and shoots him. Gus in anger shoots him while he also shoots Gus.

Lami and Bimbo are together. Bimbo tells him that he is suspicious that Chidi is part of a cult group but Lami stylishly dodges the question.
FLASHBACK ENDS

Dike and his wife- Ijeoma plead with their aunty to reveal what is happening to them, but she insists that Chidi is the only person that can say it as that is what his offender wants. Chidi still refuses to tell the truth so he leaves the sitting room. Soon, one of his friends- Emeka calls him to tell him that Lami and Bimbo had an accident on their way to his house. His friend tells him that Lami is dead while Bimbo is still breathing but the doctors’ demand for money before they can attend to him. Chidi goes inside his daddy’s room to take some money to settle Bimbo’s bills at the hospital. He manages to get to the hospital and sees the condition of Bimbo, but she dies immediately. Chidi weeps profusely.

Chidi’s mother- Ijeoma is in tears, while their aunt tells both Dike and Ijeoma to persuade Chidi to confess. Oblivious that Chidi is no longer in his room but at the hospital, Dike in anger dashes to Chike’s room to call him and make him confess at all cost. He discovers that Chidi is not in the room.
Chidi returns to the house ready to confess. Chidi confesses that he and his friends stole from a dead woman in the grave. His dad- Dike is aghast while his mum- Ijeoma unable to take the shock faints. They sprinkle water on her and she wakes up. Chidi feels another intense headache and starts shouting. Dike calms Ijeoma while her aunty senses the spirit of the dead woman is around. The lights go off, everywhere suddenly goes dim, there are shattering and then she appears with so much anger in her voice. The ghost (LIZ BENSON) gives them 8 days to return her diamond ring and then she vanishes. The lights come on again. Dike orders Chidi to go and bring the diamond ring wherever it is. Chidi tells him that he sold it. They ask him to take them to the buyer but Chidi says he is a contractor with one of the construction company and he is no longer in the country. Chidi tells them that someone at the joint he met the contractor may be able to say how to locate him. Dike is uncomfortable that he and his family need to visit joints

PLOT

At the museum of Marseille, some group of people are gathered together watching a football match in extreme excitement. Meanwhile, an intruder Gary (DAVID BELLE) breaks into the museum and carts away a cat statute relic worth 30 million Euros, exhibited at the museum in Marseille, France. The museum’s personnel soon find out that there is something amiss and that the system has been hacked, so they sound the alarm and chase after the intruder. Maggie (Song Ji-hyo) the head of security chases after Gary the intruder, he catches him and engages in a combat with Gary, but he overpowers her and keeps running. Maggie gives Gary a hot chase but he escapes and she is infuriated. Gary is still on the run. He is in the market and the police officers are also in the market looking for him. He sees a wealthy man Sanbiao (XIAO YANG) buying a lot of cat statutes, so he stylishly puts the original cat statute relic with them so he can purchase it as well.

A courier- Mali (Chen He) who works for Super Express is seen speeding on his motorbike to deliver a package. He notices another biker who sticks his gum on an elderly woman’s side mirror; he retrieves it from her side mirror, speeds up to the other biker and places it on his helmet. Mali returns to the office and his boss Lao Qian (TAI CHI- YUAN) again sends him to deliver another package within 5minutes-40 seconds. The secretary tells Mali that if he doesn’t deliver the package on time, he won’t get a bonus and he would also be penalized. Mali quickly hits the road with the package. Seeing how thick the traffic is, he looks for a way to beat it in order to meet the time being given to him at the office. He tells the secretary that if he manages to beat the heavy traffic, he is going on vacation. But instead, his boss replies him that if he fails to deliver at the stipulated time, he is permitted to take a permanent leave. Mali manages to deliver the package at the exact time after speeding his way to the place.

After delivering the package, Mali visits his fiancé’s house Nana (Li-Yuan). He meets his future mother in law (HE SAIFEI). Mali tells Nana how extraordinary he was at work. Mali meets Nana’s mother and some other people playing Mahjong game. His future mother in law doesn’t think well him, she thinks all he can do is just ride a bike and flirt around with girls. Mali wins his future mother in law in all the games which displeases her while Nana just watches. Mali soon blabs on and on, disgusted at his utterances, his future mother in law throws him out. She tells Mali that she has given up on him buying a car or a house, but he should at least buy a good ring for her daughter before she accepts his proposal to marry her daughter- Nana. She further tells him that the ring must not be less than two carats.

As Mali returns to the office, his boss Lao Qian (Tai Chih Yuan) again sends him to deliver a package to Wang Sanbiao, a man he hates so much. He immediately turns down the job. Unable to convince him, his boss Lao Qian (Tai Chih Yuan) promises him a week vacation and RMB 40.000 bonus. On hearing this, Mali remembers what the money can buy him including a very nice wedding ring for his fiancé Nana, so he speedily turns around to accept the offer. He is given forty five minutes to deliver the package. On his way, Mali encounters gridlock, unable to pass through, he devices other methods to getting to Wang Sanbiao’s house on time. He manoeuvres his way through the passageway of some people in the neighbourhood. Apparently, Mali has been passing there before, so the people on sighting him again, attack him with all forms of items. Despite the obstructions put up by the people living in the neighbourhood, Mali manages to pass through the corridor and get to Sanbiao’s house before time.

At Wang Sanbiao’s house, Maggie opens the door for Mali and tells him to drop the package. He refuses to hand the package to her without the instruction of the owner of the package. Maggie leads him in and he sees Wang in an odd way. Maggie compels Wang to allow her sign for the package, which she does and Mali lives. As soon as Mali steps out, he pulls out his phone from his bag to call the police, but Maggie opens the door and snatches the phone from him. She punches Mali and he passes out. Mali wakes up and finds himself tied to the bed.
Meanwhile, the intruder Gary (DAVID BELLE) and his partner Ryan (MASON LEE) are also at Wang Sanbiao’s house to retrieve the original cat statute relic which is in Mali’s package. Gary sees Wang tied up and suspects they are not alone. Maggie unties Mali and they both watch Gary and Ryan. Maggie tells Mali that both Gary and Ryan are terrorists while she is CIA. Mali demands to see her badge but she quiets him and pulls his hear, Maggie devices a plan with Mali in order to get Gary. Gary enters the room and Maggie kicks him from behind. The both engage in a combat. Mali hands Maggie the statute and she quickly runs off in his bike while Gary chases after her. Maggie outruns Gary and he succumbs lacking the energy to continue. Wang now realizing the worth of the cat statute relic that Gary and Maggie are after vents his anger on Mali for allowing Maggie to sign on his behalf. He threatens to sue him. Mali tells him that he agreed to her signing the package. Wang’s words make Mali leave his house without untying him.

Moments later, Mali calls Maggie, accusing her of stealing his phone, bike and packages; Maggie tells Mali that she would return his bike and phone but not his package because it is a cultural relic. Mali is surprised to hear Maggie say it is a cultural relic when she initially said it is a chemical weapon. Mali disgusted by her lies confesses to her that the cat statue relic she is holding is the fake one and that the original is with him. Maggie gets infuriated. Mali tells her to return all his items if she wants the statute back. He orders her to meet him at the police station at his given time. When they meet, Mali demands to know her through identity and she tells him she is the head of security for Marseille Museum. Mali doesn’t believe her so Maggie brings out her card for identification. She tells him that she is in search of the missing relic that is worth 30 million euros. She tells Mali that from the surveillance footage, her company is able to see that Gary had purposely dropped it on the stall of a cat statute when Wang Sanbiao was buying a whole lot of them. After much deliberation, Maggie promises to give Mali five thousand euros. Mali agrees to it but asks for a favour from her before he goes to get the relic from his girlfriend.

Mali and Maggie are at a bridal shop where Maggie is trying out wedding gowns that would be appropriate for Mali’s fiancé- Nana. Mali tells Maggie that he intends to surprise his fiancé with the gown. Maggie asks him about the ring, Mali in anger replies her that because of her, he is unable to get the bonus promised him at his place of work, which means he is unlikely to buy Nana a ring.

Meanwhile, Mali’s boss Lao Qian (Tai Chih Yuan) at Super Xpress is worried that Mali is not back and there is no signal that the package has been signed for. He tells the female secretary to keep calling Mali until he picks his line. While calling his line, Gary and Ryan walk into super express demanding to know who ran the delivery sent to Wang Sanbiao, they tell them. Ryan lies that he is a lawyer and that his client Gary was attacked by Mali which he intends to sue him for. They get to know where Mali is and go in search of him in order to retrieve the relic.

Still at the bridal shop, Mali tells Maggie good things about his girlfriend Nana while both Gary and Ryan locate the shop. Nana hears that Mali attacked one of his clients and goes looking for him, she notices his bike parked outside a bridal shop and goes in to look for Mali. She sees Mali together with Maggie in a wedding gown. She flares up at Mali thinking that he has been cheating on her with her. Ryan moves closer to Nana and lies to her that he loves her in order to retrieve the cat statute from her. In anger, she throws the statue away and they all run to catch it, but, Ryan is the first to get it; he quickly runs out of the bridal shop and enters Gary’s car. Gary tests the authenticity of the statute and discovers that it is not the original; in anger, he throws Ryan out of the car and orders him to get the original for him. Meanwhile Nana lets Maggie and Mali know that the original cat statute given to her by Mali is in the shop.

Nana seeing how desperate Mali and Maggie need the cat statute refuses to release it to them until they both clarify the relationship between them. She promises to hand over the statute to Maggie if she leaves her fiancé and check out of the country. Nana excuses them to go get the cat statute but returns to tell them that her bag is missing. Meanwhile Wang Sanbiao goes to Super Express to report the incident with Mali and the other people; they tell him it’s a criminal case. Nana thinks her bag is with her mummy, so she, Maggie and Mali go to the place her mum is performing. On sighting her they approach her but she refuses to attend to them until she finishes her performance. They look for where her bag is and finally retrieve the original cat statute. Meanwhile Gary and Ryan are already at the same venue with them. Gary tells Maggie through Ryan to hand over the cat to him with the promise of a million euro but Maggie shuns him. She moves away from where she is initially seated and tells Gary to come get her if he can even while signalling to Mali to run away with the original cat statute. Gary chases after her thinking that the real cat is with her. Meanwhile, Sanbiao is also in search of the cat statute. So they all go round and round to get the statute but it gets into the hand of Sanbiao who quickly tries to run off with it. Gary sees him, beats him up and collects it from him. Through another tussle, the cat statute again gets into the hands of Maggie and Mali and they run off together in Mali’s bike. Gary runs after them. Mali again passes the passage where the people are always infuriated at him whenever he passes. This time, they are more ready for him. They obstruct him again and this time around his bike damages making the cat statue fall off Maggie’s hands. Gary immediately picks it. Ryan plays a fast one on Gary; they settle it and head for the airport.

Mali and Maggie go ahead of Gary and his partner Ryan to the airport. They sight them and device means to get the original cat statute back which they are able to get from Gary and his partner. Gary and Ryan chase after them but did not catch them. Mali and Maggie check into a hotel where Maggie puts sleeping pills in Mali’s drink. She reveals the truth about her identity to Mali. Maggie is a hunter of cultural relics and has been stealing treasures for clients. She waited two years to steal the relic. She initially hired a hacker to track a Trojan program but because of price dispute between them, the hacker hired Gary to steal the relic for him instead. After narrating her story, she apologises to Mali for putting him through troubles, but Mali is already fast asleep
The next morning before Mali wakes up, Maggie drops the amount he promised him on the table and asks him to buy a diamond ring for his fiancé. Moments later, Mali wakes up and remembers all that happened the previous night. He gets a call from Gary to return the cat statute if he wants his girlfriend back. Mali calls Maggie to tell her that the bad guys have his fiancé and they want the cat statue back at a certain address. He pleads with her to return the cat statue but Maggie shuns him thinking he is joking. Mali goes to his office and with the approval of his boss gets his special bike and zooms off to the address Gary sent to him. Mali enters the place with a carton of fake statute of cats. He sees Nana tied up, and tells Gary that the original of the cat is also included in it. He tells him to bring Nana down at every throw of a cat till he gets to the original one.

PLOT
Kara (BUKOLA ADEEYO) is in the sitting room with another of her gang member- Tom (BELLO IBRAHIM) when two guys enter with a gun. Tom disappears while Kara is taken away. They tie Kara to the tree and she threatens to deal with them when she is off the rope. In her brag, she sees Engr. Thomas coming towards her. He tells her that since her boss did not kill her, he will. He fires the gun at her and she dies. Kara immediately wakes up from the terrifying dream pointing her gun to no one in particular. She picks up her phone and sends a message.
Kara is in the sitting room with Don (ODUNLADE ADEKOLA); she narrates her dream to him. Don realizes that Engr. Thomas is serious about killing Kara. He tells Kara his last discussion with Engr. Thomas and that he wants her dead. Kara is infuriated and tells her boss that she wants to be the one to kill him, but Don tells her to exercise patience.

Engr. Thomas (YOMI FASH LANSO) is in the sitting room when the vendor delivers a paper to him. The vendor leaves and his phone beeps; the caller is Don. Don tells Thomas that he knows his plans and it will boomerang back on him. He threatens to kill every member of his family on earth. Thomas hearing the words of Don quickly calls the people he has given the task to kill Kara to put a pause on it. Meanwhile, after Don drops the call, he tells one of Mojisola that he needs two ladies.

One of the Muslim contractors- Muyideen decides to visit PTAB COMPANY- the company where late Bamitale is usually awarded contracts. He pleads with them to give him the next job that he is going to bribe them. The manager of the company is infuriated as he hears bribe, he tells the staff to walk him out of the office that the contract has been awarded to Engr. Thomas. The Muslim contractor- Muyideen decides to visit Thomas. He pleads with him to give his company the newly awarded contract given to him by PTAB company since he still has one project that he is still handling. This infuriates Thomas as he tells his friend- Muyideen that he is sick for suggesting that. Muyideen threatens Thomas and tells him to either hand over the new PTAB company contract job to him or risk his secrets being exposed by him. This worries Engr. Thomas as he feels that Muyideen apparently knows that he is behind late chief Bamitale’s death. Engr. Thomas and Muyideen exchange insults till Thomas’s wife walks in on them and Muyideen leaves. Thomas’s wife pleads with him to tell him the issue between the two of them and he replies her nothing.

Engr. Thomas in anger goes to the location where Don and his gang members are staying. He accuses them of exposing his secret especially Kara. He threatens to deal with them and get them involved in the police as well if his secret is exposed. He then walks away. Kara is upset. She tells her boss that they should kill Engr. Thomas immediately but Don tells her to be patient that his death time is close.

Engr. Thomas is in the sitting room and he is trying to call his wife’s phone but it is unreachable. He looks terrified. He senses that there is danger around and that death is near. His wife walks in on him and he tells her that he has been trying to reach her line. He tries to explain the reason behind the argument with his friend- Muyideen to his wife, but Kara walks in on them and shoots him. She joins Don in the car and they drive off.

The police invade Muyideen’s house and arrest him for the murder of Engr. Thomas. In the police station Muyideen sees late Thomas’s wife crying in front of a police officer as well as accusing him of killing her husband. The police try to calm her but she is not calmed. Muyideen maintains that he is not responsible for her husband’s death. He tells the police man that all the words he said to the deceased about exposing his secrets are just empty threats. The police man in charge tells his subordinate to refer the case to court.

The hotel manager of the hotel where chief Bamitale got shot is at a building site. He is angry with one of the builders as he and his men are yet to complete the building. He suddenly sights Kara and recognizes her immediately as the lady behind late Bamitale’s death. He screams and runs away. Kara is pissed that she is unable to see his face, so she and her female counterpart- Mojisola stop their mission.

Late Engr. Thomas’s maid is in the police station. She initially tells the police that she knows and can identify the face of the killer of her boss, but again changes words that she can’t recognize the person’s face. The police officer in charge tells his subordinate to take her away.

Fred (YOOMI GOLD ALORE), the young guy admiring Kara the other day in the club finally locates Kara’s house and pays her a visit. Kara reluctantly opens the door for him. She asks who he is and who he is looking for. Fred tells Kara that he met her at the club and since that day, he has been in love with her. He tries to sit on Kara’s couch and something strange happens to him, he pleads with Kara to allow him sit down but Kara shuns him. She tells him to either sit on the floor or remain standing. He opts for the former. Fred continues telling Kara how in love he is with her, while Kara sends a message to her gang members to come deal with him. Her gang members- Tom and Mojisola drive in and take Fred along with them. They put him in a booth and take him to an unknown destination. They strip Fred and torture him to confess about his real identity and why he is after Kara. Fred replies that he is in love with Kara. Not satisfied with his answer, the female in the gang pours urine on him. Kara’s female counter part- Mojisola goes back to tell Kara that Fred means no harm that he truly loves her. Kara is short of words.

An herbalist’s son suddenly gives up the ghost and the man tries resuscitating him. Some people help him out with concoctions; they chant some incantations till he wakes up. Meanwhile, the elder brother of late Bamitale- Olori Ebi (BOLAJI AMUSAN) who wants the herbalist to help make late Bamitale’s spirit chase after his killers and kill them all comes looking for the herbalist with Bamitale’s picture. The herbalist avoids him and tells Olori Ebi that the case he brought to him is the reason his son almost died. He tells Olori Ebi that he is no longer interested in the case. The herbalist advices him to put his hands off the case as well else he will face a bigger problem but late Bamitale’s senior brother instead accuses the herbalist of collecting bribe. The herbalist shuns him and enters inside his house with his family. Late Bamitale’s senior brother knocks at his door but he gets no reply from the herbalist.

Tom and Mojisola finally release Fred. Fred expresses his anger to Kara on the way his people torture him and Kara apologizes to him. Kara asks Fred what he does for a living and he tells her that he is the son of a wealthy. Fred also asks Kara what she does for a living and Kara says she is a hustler. Fred tells Kara that he loves her and would love to marry her. Kara tells him to kill his mother first. Fred is taken aback at her words and tells her he can’t do that. Kara in return tells him she is joking.

Don’s herbalist visits Don and tells him there is danger ahead but he is yet to see who is behind or where it is coming from. He therefore tells Don that he and his gang members should be extremely watchful and careful.

Don is in the sitting room with Kara; he eulogizes her first and then asks her plans for the day. Kara replies that she wants to stop by at her grandma’s place. Don tells Kara to be careful wherever she goes to. He then asks Kara about the young guy- Fred that is always around her of recent, she replies Don that he is just a friend. Don tells her that the boy is a form of distraction and that she is still young, she will later find a man later in life. He tells her that he loves her and that no one can love her the way he does, that she should not let any man spoil her career or make her lose focus. She nods her head to all he says and then leaves afterwards.

Fred visits Kara’s house minutes earlier before the agreed time. Kara is surprised but welcomes him. Fred tells her he is hungry but Kara replies that he can only find drinks in her house and not food. Kara offers him a drugged drink. He sleeps off and Kara searches him till she gets information on him. She discovers that Fred is a police officer. Kara taps Fred pointing a gun at him. Realizing that his secret has been exposed, he tells her that the reason he is into her is because he and his team have been trying to capture her boss- Don but they feel the best way to do that is through her. Kara calls his real name- Olabamiji Olaoshebikan and damns him for pretending to be Fred. She gives him one minute to talk after which she shoots her.

In the police station, the rest of the crew are worried that Fred’s number is not reachable since he is on a mission to get Kara, her boss and the other gang members. His co-colleagues say Fred is always careless at times but the DPO disagrees with them and says he will find a solution to the matter on ground.

Mojisola and Tom are together. She expresses her frustration on Kara being the only one placed on top of every execution. Tom tells her to accept it like that and not be jealous of Kara that it may be her turn tomorrow. She ignores his words and continues to show her anger on Kara being the favourite. This infuriates Tom and he walks out.

Mojisola asks Kara their future in the evil job they are doing. Kara replies that there is no future in it. She tells Kara that she is tired of a job that comes with no future that she wants to marry and so she needs to quit. Kara laughs it off.

Don and Kara fortify Mojisola Komolafe also. She picks up a kolanut and swears that anytime she acts against the group, she should die- which Kara and Don both chorused amen.

Kara is now at her grandma’s house. She pays a certain young guy to repair and fix all the leaking and burst pipes in the house. Her grandma prays for her. Meanwhile, Don’s herbalist visits him and tells him that one of his gang members may kill him. Don asks who the person is and he replies Kara. Don is confused as to why Kara will want to kill him since she is his favourite. Don asks the herbalist what he should do and he replies that he should act first before Kara acts. Don calls Kara and orders her to return as soon as possible that he needs her to carry out a particular job. Kara reduces the days she ought to spend with her grandma and promises Don to return soon. Kara goes to greet other people in the neighbourhood. In her absence, Kara’s younger sister returns upset that her grandma let Kara go, but she tells her that Kara is still around and that her bag is inside. She searches her bag in a bid to take anything valuable from it. In the bag she sees a picture of her sister with an elderly man which is Don. She tells their grandma that her sister is dating someone older than her. The grandma stretches forth her hand to collect the picture and immediately recognizes Don as the person responsible for their mother’s death. She screams and tells her grandchildren the story. Kara is pained and screams as well. Kara in anger returns to go and kill Don to avenge her mother’s death. She points a gun at Don and tells him that he is the one behind her mum’s death. Don calls her mother’s name and without remorse apologizes for it. Irritated now, Don tells Kara that the life of her mummy was paid for so he had to kill her. He reminds Kara of the rule of the game, which is when money has been collected for a mission it should be carried out. Kara gets more infuriated and Dan reminds her also that she has also been killing someone’s parents. He tells her that he is responsible for the great person she is and that he picked her up and made her useful. Kara is infuriated at those words. She asks Don who she is useful to, just then, Moji and Tom walk in, but Kara kills them immediately. Don is aghast, he stares at Kara and calls her name, but Kara still in an angry mood, shoots him afterwards. On her way out of the house, Don takes the gun under the couch and shoots her as well.

After some minutes of ranting, her boss finally collects the file from her and she steps out. In her absence, he eulogizes how endowed she is.

A female receptionist of a hotel receives a phone call from chief Bamitale (MUYIWA ADEMOLA) who tells her to tell the hotel manager (TUNDE OWOKONIRAN) that he would be expecting a female visitor; chief Bamitale tells the secretary that they should prepare his usual room. Kara (BUKOLA ADEEYO) walks into the hotel and asks if chief Bamitale is upstairs, the receptionist assuming she is the lady chief Bamitale is expecting answers her. Kara requests for the room key and she hands it over to her. Kara locates the room and looks around. Moments later, her female counter part- Mojisola calls to check on her. She tells Kara to call her once she is done with her mission.

The right lady on appointment with chief Bamitale walks into the hotel and tells the receptionist that she has an appointment with chief Bamitale. The receptionist is confused as there is already a lady upstairs. She hints the hotel manager on what’s happening and he steps out to call chief Bamitale who tells him to handle the situation

One of chief Bamitale’s female staff enters his office to take permission to be absent from work for two days. Chief Bamitale shuns her telling her that there are lots of works to be done in the office. He then starts making a pass at her and gives her a slap on her bums. His driver walks in and chief Bamitale pretends to be scolding the female staff, he sends her out rudely afterwards and then attends to the driver, as soon as the driver steps out of his office, chief Bamitale insults him for walking in on him at the moment he is having fun.
Chief Bamitale’s wife is in the city room when their daughter walks in upset that her mother didn’t pick her up from school, her mum apologizes. Her son walks in afterwards and she tells her daughter to excuse them that she wants to talk with her brother, reluctantly; she leaves the sitting room for them. Mrs. Bamitale tells her son that his daddy’s numbers are unreachable. Their housemaid- Rebecca enters the sitting room to drop Mrs. Bamitale’s bag. Mrs. Bamitale’s son tries another of his dad’s no and Mrs. Bamitale speaks to her husband through his phone. She gets angry with her husband for not giving her his new line, chief Bamitale reluctantly apologizes to her and tells her about the new contract. Mrs. Bamitale tells her husband that she needs to see him urgently, but chief Bamitale lies that he has a urgent business meeting which would last till the next day, meanwhile he is heading to a hotel to stay overnight with a girl. His wife- Mrs. Bamitale tries to persuade him to come to the house but he gets upset and cuts the phone on her. Mrs. Bamitale asks her son what ends their daddy’s new number in order to redial it from her phone, but she gets the shock of her life when the house maid- Rebecca tells her. This infuriates Mrs. Bamitale and she beats her but her son stops her.

Bamitale is now in the hotel and is well greeted by the hotel manager and the receptionist. The hotel manager tells him that he was able to retain one lady and send the other away. Bamitale thanks the manager and heads to his room. Meanwhile, Kara is still in the hotel room, she hears a knock on the door and goes to get it. She stays behind the door to open it. Bamitale enters the room and sees that she is not the lady he is expecting, he therefore assumes that he is in a wrong room. In his confusion, the girl calls him by his full name with no title. Bamitale gets upset that a little girl like Kara has got the guts to call him by name. He scolds her and blabs on and on. Kara quiets him and points a gun at him and he immediately stops talking. Kara introduces herself to him and tells him that she is a hired assassin and his life has been paid for by one of his business colleagues who do not want him alive. Bamitale quickly remembers his argument about money with two ladies in his office. He thinks the two ladies are the ones after his life so he promises Kara to pay what he owes them once she frees him. Kara tells him that the person that wants him dead is a man and not a woman and chief Bamitale is speechless as he explains to Kara that he only sleeps with ladies and not men. Kara calls him an adulterer and again shuts him up. A call comes in through Kara’s phone; it is her boss the Don (ODUNLADE ADEKOLA). Don tells her that she has just two minutes to complete her mission. Kara tells Bamitale that he has one minute to say whatever he wants to say, but Bamitale instead tells her that he would give her money; she pulls the trigger and kills Bamitale. Meanwhile one of the hotel staff hears the sound of a gunshot and trembles. He sees the manager and the receptionist and tells them that he heard a gunshot. The receptionist trembles immediately while the manager tries to pacify them. The hotel manager tries to go up to find out what is happening when he stumbles on Kara with a gun; he quickly falls flat on the floor while the other two staff do the same.

The police officers and the journalists are in the hotel premises where they question the hotel manager about chief Bamitale’s death. The police search the room and examine Bamitale’s body while the journalists keep snapping. Meanwhile, there is a news broadcast on the television and Mrs. Bamitale walks in the tine they are talking about the death of her husband. She screams and her children as well as the maid rush out to check what’s happening. They see their dad’s corpse lying on the floor.

Kara’s boss- Don (ODUNLADE ADEKOLA) commends all the efforts of his team members- Kara, Mojisola and Tom, especially Kara (BUKOLA ADEEYO) for their good jobs. He encourages Kara and tells her that he will always appreciate her satisfactory jobs. Kara receives money alert on her phone for her last execution and she thanks her boss. Don gives his team two weeks leave after which he tells them to resume back. They celebrate their victory.

Three contractors are seated in a restaurant frustrated that chief Bamitale is the only fortunate one that gets contracts. Meanwhile they are unaware that he is dead. Two of the contractors are Muslims and they accuse Bamitale of witchcraft. The only Christian contractor- Engr. Thomas (YOMI FASH LANSO) in their midst defends Bamitale saying that he is just blessed. The Muslim contractors tell the Christian contractor- Engr. Bamitale that he is the one going to church but as for them, they will find a way around it like doing some voodoo. Engr. Thomas’s phone suddenly rings and he steps aside to receive it. The caller is Kara’s boss- the Don (ODUNLADE ADEKOLA) who tells Engr. Thomas that they have executed his work; that chief Bamitale is dead. Engr. Thomas rejoices and thanks Don for the good work. He returns to his co-contractors and pretends to be righteous again with them and advices them to be prayerful.
Kara’s boss- the Don tells Kara that his herbalist is having a celebration and he wants her to come along with him so that the herbalist can know and put some charms on her. So he tells Kara to stay back for a while before going on leave.
Late chief Bamitale’s family members are still mourning over his death. The pastor is with them and he is consoling them. The elder brother of late chief Bamitale- Olori Ebi (BOLAJI AMUSAN) walks in and pours aggression on the pastor because he says God is the one that gives relief. He replies him that many human beings also give relief and there are many people that can destroy lives. He insults the pastor and the pastor asks God to forgive him. He faces late chief Bamitale’s son and tells him to go and bring his daddy’s 5 by 7 picture that he will go and meet an herbalist to invoke his spirit. He goes to get it while he consoles his late brother’s widow.

Engr. Thomas is in a particular company where they award his company a contract worth huge amount of money. He is happy and over talks, when he sees that his words are not soothing to the manager, he retracts his words and apologizes. They sign the contract deal and he leaves happily.

Kara is in a club and she is dancing alone and sipping a strong drink as well. A young man- Fred (YOMI GOLD ALORE) that is with his friend in the club spots her and falls for her dance steps. Fred ignores his friend’s conversation and focuses on Kara’s moves. The bar man brings more drinks for Fred and he asks him information about Kara. He tells Fred that Kara just loves to have fun and that she buys a drink of 4000 naira for 40000 naira. That she likes to do her clubbing on a separate day from the usual Friday club day. Fred keeps staring at Kara and tells his friend that Kara is not a prostitute like he thinks but someone that loves to have fun at her convenient time. Fred stands up and splashes money on Kara and then returns to sit beside his friend. Kara packs his money from the floor and goes to pour it on him and then leaves the club afterwards. Fred immediately follows Kara. The police stop Kara for checks, but soon release her without checking her. They stop Fred also and question him. Fred tells the police to release him because it is important that he follows Kara but the police tell him to show his identity which angers him. Kara drives down to her house and is puzzled to see her boss in her house when he doesn’t have the key to her house. Don scolds Kara for going to club and returning at that hour of the night, not minding the kind of people she may come across on the road. Don tells Kara how important she is to him and the need for her to be careful. He tells Kara that there is danger ahead that she should be watchful of her movements even though he has given them some days off. Kara’s boss tells her to unwrap what he placed on the table. Kara does that and sees a pot of concoction; she eats it as her boss orders her. Don tells Kara that she should break the pot at a junction before the next 30 minutes after eating it. As she is eating it, her boss chants some words for her safety and victory in all operations.

Engr. Thomas calls Kara’s boss- Don for an important discussion and Don goes with Kara. Kara’s presence makes him unable to freely open up to Don the reason for the meeting. Kara senses Engr. Thomas’s withdrawal and notices his stare, so she leaves their midst. Kara’s boss asks Engr. Thomas to tell him the reason for the meeting. He tells Kara’s boss that he wants to know the person who executed the last job on chief Bamitale, reluctantly Kara’s boss tells him. Engr. Thomas is speechless because he feels Kara is too tiny to achieve such mission. Kara’s boss tells him how great Kara is. Engr. Thomas tells Don that he doesn’t trust Kara as she may in the future blackmail them. He therefore suggests that they kill Kara. This doesn’t go well with Don as Kara is his favourites. In anger, Don tells Engr. that he would kill him instead. He walks away leaving Engr. Thomas dumbfounded.

Kara is in the sitting room with another of her gang member- Tom when two guys with a gun walk in on them. Tom disappears while Kara is taken away. They tie Kara to the tree and she threatens to deal with them when she is off the rope. In her brag, she sees Engr. Thomas coming towards her. He tells her that since her boss did not kill her, he will. He fires the gun at her and she dies.

SYNOPSIS
The movie ’30 minutes from hell’ centers on the wish of a wealthy man before his death which basically is, that his family members should do a low key burial ceremony for him rather than a loud burial ceremony where his money would be squandered.

Meanwhile, two female friends in the village on their way stop to gossip about the late wealthy man who refuses to be buried like his other rich counterpart and they are puzzled as to what could be the reason. The undertakers on still on their way to drop late Ude’s corpse, but they dance around with his corpse and then throw his coffin up, then suddenly, they feel a strange move in the coffin and they drop it on the floor. They open the coffin and chief Ude wakes up which makes the undertakers and all that are mourning flee. Ude in his coffin laments in anger how he has been in the mortuary for three months because they refuse to bury him. Still lamenting, he says when they decide to bury him; they are throwing his corpse up and down like a small boy, as well as using the band to hit his coffin. He calls them mad people. He decides to go and wait for them in the village where they want to bury him and then vanishes.

The three brothers of late Ude while waiting for the arrival of his corpse decide to take a drink. Meanwhile, the two female friends stop again on the road to gossip. They are puzzled as to why they are yet to bring late Ude’s corpse. One of them says it is probably traffic; they continue their walk until they reach late Ude’s compound.

Late Ude on his way to the village stops a tricycle and tells the motorist to take him to the park, the motorist seeing a cotton wool in his nose tells Ude that he looks like a dead man, Ude replies him and lets him know that he is a dead man; the motorist immediately flees. Ude stops another tricycle and the motorist again flees realizing that he is a dead man. Ude finally gets a tricycle that carries him to where he is going to. The motorist alights for Ude and he demands for his money from him, but Ude tells the motorist that in the land of the dead, they don’t use his type of currency. Two lookers -male and female sensing the conflict between Ude and the motorist, walk up to them to mediate, they charge Ude to pay the motorist his money. Ude again tries to let them know that he is a dead man. The motorist thinks Ude is trying to play a fast one on him, so he makes an attempt to hit him but when he does, he notices that Ude is untouchable. Ude now upset with the motorist, displays some form of power and he runs off, while the two lookers also run off. Ude walks for a while and then disappears to the site where they intend to bury him. On getting there, he notices they are not there yet, so he decides to join them where they are.

Ude’s younger brother Dan (NONI IGBOANUGO), Ude’s widow- Suzan (EVE ESIN) and another mourner are in Ude’s big house. The widow is confused on how to tell her in-laws about the corpse of her late husband but they tell her not to worry assuring her that they would be her witness.

A villager runs into the gathering where the burial ceremony of Ude is to hold. He tells late Ude’s brothers that their late brother is on his way to the house. Ude’s brothers think the villager is on drugs so they shun him. Shortly after, Ude walks into the compound and the crowd disengages. His brothers step back all trembling and puzzled at what is happening while Ude stares deeply at them as he goes to lie on the table. His brothers decide to move closer to where he is lying to know if he is still dead or alive. Seeing his eye lids are closed, they decide to call their younger brother Dan and Ude’s widow- Suzan. After several attempts to reach them, Ude’s widow- Suzan, finally picks her call and narrates her experience about her husband corpse to her in-laws, but she is puzzled when they tell her that his body is already where they are. She relays their message to Ude’s younger brother Dan who is with her. Meanwhile the two friends stop again to gossip about Ude. One of them says he is a cultist while the other one says he didn’t die. They both decide to go back to the compound self-witness how the story unfolds.

Meanwhile the other three brothers of Ude are stilll around Ude waiting for Dan and Suzan to come around so that they can bury him. In their wait, Ude tells them to bury him quickly, they look around searching for where the voice has come from. They shun the voice, oblivious that its Ude’s and continue their conversation. They plan to get another coffin to bury him quickly. Ude on hearing that it is coffin that is delaying his burial decides to go get one himself. He vanishes and his brothers tremble again and run off.

Ude appears to a coffin vendor and tells him that he wants to buy a coffin. The coffin vendor cognizant of his death runs off immediately refusing to sell market to a dead man. Ude selects a suitable coffin and then vanishes with it.

Ude’s widow- Suzan and younger brother finally get to the compound where the other three brothers are but do not see Ude’s corpse, his brother tells them that Ude has gone to buy a coffin that will be used to bury him. In their bewilderment, Ude appears to all of them with a coffin on his head, he drops the coffee and enters into it, leaving the coffin open. They all tremble and push the eldest of them Okeke (CHARLES AWURUM) to go and close the coffin, he attempts it but the coffin refuses to close.

They call on the herbalist to mellow Ude’s spirit down. The herbalist comes around and performs some incantations and tries closing the coffin but Ude gives him a slap. He immediately runs off with his followers. Ude closes the coffin himself, vanishes and lands into the ground dug for him. Meanwhile, the two females are still on their way to the place of the burial when they sight the herbalist and his followers running, they immediately run off as well.

The brothers of late Ude and his widow- Suzan are discussing late Ude’s property and their own share. Ude’s elder brothers want to take over Ude’s property from his late wife forcefully, while the Suzan shuns them. Ude’s younger brother Dan seems to be on the side of Ude’s widow- Suzan. Dan tells his elder brothers to be calm about it that things are not done that way again. Okeke- the eldest of them accuses Dan of sleeping with late Ude’s wife- Suzan and that is the reason for his utterances and refusal to support them instead of Suzan. In anger, Dan walks out from their midst. Ude’s widow- Suzan is infuriated and drives the other brothers of Ude out as well. They shun her and stay back, she threatens to deal them if she enters the house and comes back to find them still in the compound. Suzan gets off her chair, this terrifies the other three brothers and they run off.

The three brothers gather to react to how Suzan treated them on their last visit. They decide to battle her either physically or spiritually. They plan on chasing her out and stripping her of their late brother’s inheritance on the basis that she has no child and they are Ude’s brothers.

Ude’s widow- Suzan employs a new gateman Zanza (IYKE ILOKA) and orders him not to allow anyone in except she allows the person. She tells him that all visitors mist fill a form which she must see before they are granted entry.
Max (KINGSLEY OGBONNA) and Dan (NONI IGBOANUGO) stumble on each other. Max complains to Dan about Suzan’s character and tells Dan their intention but he refuses to join them in their acts. Max is irritated and insults Dan, but Dan walks away leaving him puzzled

Suzan is with her close friend- Genia (OLUCHI EKEH) and tells her what has been happening between her and her in-laws. Suzan tells Genia that she would deal with them but Genia advices her to dialogue first with them and Suzan agrees to her suggestion. Dan goes to visit Suzan but the gateman tells him to wait a minute so he can inform his boss-Suzan. Dan enters without waiting for the gateman to get a reply from Suzan and the gateman tries to stop him. Suzan sights Dan from afar and tells the gateman to let him pass. Suzan introduces Dan to Genia and vice versa after which Daniel tells her the problem he is having with his brothers on the issue of property and because of her. Suzan tells Dan that she would personally handle them. She calls her house help- Janet (QUINCY ONWUKA) and tells her to make food for Dan. Meanwhile, Dan’s brothers Okeke and Max are discussing about Dan and his refusal to be a part of their plan. Okeke says he would deal with both Suzan and Dan his brother.

The three brothers again- Okeke, Max and Eze, go to Suzan’s house. The gatemen- Zanza tells them that the new rule is that all visitors must write their name first in a piece of paper before seeing his madam, they initially flare up but later write down their names reluctantly. Suzan sees the form, smiles and then tells the gateman to let them in. Meanwhile, the two female gossips are seated outside talking about how late Ude’s brothers are fighting over his property. One of them says that late Ude’s wife is tough with them. They talk about Dan the younger brother of Ude being on the side of Suzan and they suspect both Dan and Suzan are having an affair. After dialoguing with the brothers of her late husband, Suzan feigns acceptance to their terms. She picks up a phone and pretends to dial the number of a DPO; she tells him that there are robbers in her house. On hearing this, the three brothers flee. On their way, they discuss how dangerous Ude’s widow is and suspect her of killing their brother. They make up their mind to deal with her. Suzan on her part makes up her mind to also deal with them. She calls the gateman-Zanza and tells him never to let them in again.

Ude is in hell fire and he is scratching his whole body and calling for help.

The eldest of the brothers- Okeke calls for meeting with his other brothers so that they can discuss how to handle Suzan. Dan is infuriated when he realizes that the meeting is about Suzan. He tells them never to get him involved in their act against Suzan and then walks away. The remaining brothers look at him and they conclude that Susan used charm on him. They make up their mind to go extra mile in order to subdue their late brother’s widow.

Dan visits Susan and the gateman lets him enter freely without giving him a form to fill. Susan welcomes Dan and he tells her that his brothers are disturbing him on her case. Suzan calls the house help- Janet and tells her to go get Dan a chair, a drink and then tells her to go to the market afterward.
Okeke goes to an herbalist- Ikuku (ISAAC OTUTU) to seek help in removing Susan from their brother’s property and make her submit to their will. Meanwhile, Dan is still in Susan’s house and Susan expresses her love for Dan and Dan does the same. They discuss a little about Dan’s brothers and Susan says she would frustrate whatever plans that they have. They push issues regarding them aside and enter the bedroom. Okeke is still with the herbalist- Ikuku who tells him that they can’t harm Susan because the spirit behind her is very strong. Okeke tells him that they have no intention of hurting her, that all they want is for her hand to be weak so that she can release some of their brother’s inheritance to them. Ikuku agrees to help them and tells him to drop 20, 000 naira for all he will use to make his demands come to pass. Okeke agrees to his request and tells him he will be back in two days’ time. Ikuku in return assures Okeke that Suzan would leave the inheritance for him and his brothers.

Dan and Susan leave the bedroom after which Susan hands him a key to one of their vehicles. She tells Dan it’s his second inheritance after inheriting her. Dan and Susan move towards the car. He enters and immediately runs out. Susan asks him what the problem is and he tells him that her late husband is in the vehicle. Puzzled Susan looks inside the car to see if Ude is truly there but sees no one. Daniel tells Susan to believe what he is saying. He tells her that her late husband called him a thief. Susan tells Daniel that it is just a figment of his imagination. To cheer him up, Suzan tells him that they should both go in and relax for a while after which he can comeback for his car.

The three brothers- Okeke, Max and Eze gather together and split the twenty thousand among themselves in order to be able to pay the herbalist. Dan is still in Susan’s house and tells her that nothing can ever separate them. Ude is in hellfire and he hears and sees all their utterances and acts. He is mad at Dan’s display of affection to his wife. He is crying.

Susan’s house help–Janet hands over the food of the gateman- Zanza to him. He calls her name Jany and she reprimands him for that. She tells the Zanza never to call her that but call her full name instead.

Okeke is back at the herbalist’s place- Ikuku who gives him a substance that he and his brothers would rub on their eyes when going to see Suzan. He also tells Okeke and brothers not to talk to anybody on their way till they see Susan. After relaxing at Susan’s place, Dan is set to leave. He thanks Susan for the car gift and Susan tells him that more gifts are coming. Dan replies that he can’t wait to have them. As he drives out, he stumbles on Okeke. In anger, he stares at Dan as he drives past and promises to deal with him. Meanwhile, Ude is still calling for help in hellfire as the fire gets hotter. Suddenly, Ude appears to his brother- Dan in his car and again calls him a thief, Dan immediately runs out of the car leaving the door ajar. He hangs around a place and calls Susan to narrate what happened. He tells her where the car is and where he put the key after which he runs away. Susan is puzzled and takes a tricycle to where the car is and drives it back to the house.

The three brothers Okeke, Max and Eze are seated together, they plan on going to Susan’s place the next day. Okeke tells that he saw Dan driving one of late Ude’s cars when returning from Ikuku shrine but Max and Eze are not surprised.

The next day, the three brothers go to Susan’s house. On their way, they do not reply greetings because of Ikuku’s instructions. At Susan’s place, the gateman- Zanza refuses them entry and sends them away. In anger, Eze tells Zanza that the house is for their late brother Ude. Zanza quickly goes inside to report them to his madam- Suzan while Okeke and Max get upset with Eze for nullifying the charm. Okeke in anger says he wont drop the smallest of his coin again that Eze should pay for everything for destroying the voodoo. Frustrated that their efforts are futile, the three of them leave Susan’s premises. When Susan comes out, she sees no one and insults them.

Ude still in hell is begging God to forgive and forget his sins. He pleads with God to let him out for a while and promises to return back afterwards. He threatens to deal with those chasing after his property. He again pleads with God to give him just 30 minutes.

Dan is with Susan. She hands him a bag containing 20 million naira and tells him to purchase another car with it since her late husband doesn’t want him to drive the other vehicle. Dan is thankful to Susan and appreciates her a lot for her kindness. Meanwhile, Ude in hell sees everything and insults his brother- Dan for taking his money and also trying to inherit his property.

Okeke is seated outside his compound. He is moody. His wife notices his mood and asks him what the issue is. He tells her that Susan wants to take over their brother’s entire property, that, instead of sharing it properly, she is sharing it with Dan alone, but his wife advices him to leave Susan alone with her late husband’s property rather than chasing after it. This infuriates Okeke and he shouts at his wife. Their daughter hearing their argument from the room tries to intervene after hearing the reason for the conflict, but her father insults her as well. Okeke afterwards orders them into the house.

Susan tells Dan to move into her house. Dan exclaims sensing how much more trouble it may cause between him and his three other brothers. Susan tells Dan not to worry, that as a widow, she is choosing him over his brothers. She tells him to make it genuine with the laws of the land while Dan says he would think about it

Okeke goes back to Ikuku the herbalist and explains what happened. He pleads with him to beg the gods on their behalf to prepare another charm portion for them. Ikuku tells him that the gods can’t sell on credit. Okeke replies that he has the full money with him for the work. Ikuku tells him that he would prepare a stronger portion for him. He collects the money from Okeke and assures him that the woman would submit to him and his brothers.
Dan finally accepts Susan’s proposal and agrees to live with her. While talking, Susan reveals to him that she is responsible for the death of his late brother- her own husband- Ude and she says it is because of him. Daniel exclaims after hearing this and she shushes him.

Ude again in hell pleads with God to give him some few minutes to go deal with those trying to scatter the wealth he suffered to make.

The three brothers – Okeke, Max and Eze are on their way again to Susan’s place. They use signs to communicate to one another till they get to her place. Meanwhile Ude watches them from hell and calls them wicked people. He again pleads with God to give him 30 minutes.

Daniel and Susan are still together and they profess their love to each other. Susan tells him that her former husband is boring but with him she feels fulfilled.

Susan’s gateman- Zanza opens the door and sees the three brothers again- Okeke, Max and Eze. They refuse to talk to Zanza. When Zanza asks who they have come to see, they point at the gate. Zanza goes inside to tell Susan. Susan in anger makes an attempt to go deal with them but Daniel tells her to sit down with the promise of handling the matter. The three brothers sighting Daniel initially refuse to talk to him, but when he calls late Ude’s house his house, they all voice out in shock. Dan again tells them that he is married to Susan and his wife doesn’t want to see them in the house again. He walks out on them and tells Zanza to shut the gate.

The three brothers are still in shock over Daniel’s claims and utterances. They set out to device another plan to get Susan and Daniel.

Okeke in his frustration of being unable to make Susan succumb, transfers the aggression to his family. His wife and daughter shun him and enter the house while Okeke leaves the compound in anger.

Ude is still begging God to give him 30 minutes to deal with those that are fighting for the wealth he suffered to make while on earth. In his pleads, he finally hears his name and he gets that 30 minutes request and he vanishes.

The two female friends while on their way to fetch water stop to gossip more on the happenings in late Ude’s family. One of them says that all the brothers are fighting to get an inheritance from his property. She tells the other lady that Dan is now married to Susan and as a result now owns the entire property of Maxi Ude. As they are gossiping, Ude appears to them with strokes of canes on him, after listening to their gossip, he tells them they are lying. They look around to trace the voice and see late Maxi Ude and they run off. On their way, they stumble on Ude’s two brothers- Max and Eze who are on their way to their elder brother’s compound- Okeke, they tell them that they have just seen their dead brother- Ude, but the two brothers tell them that they are going bizarre and then walk away.
Okeke is in his compound and is still upset with his inability to get a share from his late brother’s inheritance. His wife and daughter call him to eat but he shuns them. As they are pleading with him, Ude appears to him. He asks him why he is after his money. Ude asks Okeke if he made the money with him, but Okeke replies that he is dead and that he should go his own way. He tells Okeke to confess to his wife- Obidia and daughter- Nma. Okeke tells Obidia and Nma that he went to the herbalist- Ikuku to get a charm that will make Susan surrender all Ude’s property to him and his other brothers. After his confession, Ude orders Okeke to lie down after which he flogs him to death. Obidia and Nma are weeping over the death of Okeke, Max and Eze are now with them. They ask what happened and both Obidia and Nma tell them that their late brother- Ude flogged him to death. Confused, they run to Ikuku’s place for help. Meanwhile, Ude appears to Ikuku and kills him also. The two brothers realize that their late brother has come for a revenge mission.

Susan is chatting with her friend Genia. She is happy that Suzan is happy and tells her that is the reason for killing her husband- Ude. Suzan tells Genia that they would be celebrating 6 months of her husband’s demise and as well contribute to the church. Susan tells Genia that she and her husband are waiting for the presiding reverend father.

The two female gossips are together and one of them tells the other that late Ude after killing his brother Okeke has gone to kill Ikuku as well. She says that Ude is probably killing those that have a hand in his death.
The reverend father is now in Susan’s house. Suzan tells him that she and her new husband- Dan will donate a million naira to the church as well as celebrate the remembrance of her late husband- Ude. The reverend father is happy and tells Susan that she is better with Dan than Ude who was very stingy during his time on earth. He again thanks the couple on behalf of the church for their generosity.

The two brothers Max and Eze are running helter-skelter. Eze tells Max that they should go to Susan’s house to confess. They change direction towards her compound.

Ude goes to his house and asks Zanza about the whereabout of Susan, but he is unable to speak as he is in shock. Ude disappears into the compound and sees his brother Dan, the reverend father, Susan and her friend- Genia. The reverend father tries to rebuke Ude and he silences him. Ude calls him a bad-minded reverend father, and tells him it is impossible for him to rebuke him. He flogs him to death first, then Genia, Dan and then his wife- Susan; after which he drops the bundle of cane on them. Ude hears a sound and he notices that is time is almost elapsing. He pleads for few more minutes in order to beat the remaining two brothers- Max and Eze. Just then, they walk in and see that Susan and others are ead. They try to run away but come face to face with Ude. They plead with him but he kills Max first and then Eze. He weeps and says they all killed him because of the wealth which he suffered to make.

PLOT
A young boy- Taiye (BRIGHT OKWUAZU) wakes up at the middle of the night and steps out of his room. He hears his name countlessly but sees no one. He gets scared and asks who is calling his name; suddenly, someone taps him from behind and reveals herself as his mother. His mother tells him not to be scared that she has not come to harm him but to do good to him. His mother tells him that he is old enough to inherit what she inherited from her father. She tells him that what she inherited from her father is buried on the ground that they are standing. She tells Taiye that it is a spectacle and it is a powerful instrument used in the administration of the town. Taiye’s mother tells him that with the spectacle, he would see scary things, but when he does, he shouldn’t fear as long as he doesn’t do evil. Taiye picks up a hoe and digs where his mother asks him to dig. He wakes up and notices that it is just a nightmare. He calls his mum’s name. Shortly after, a knock comes on his door. It is his step mum- Iyaile iya Taiye (FAUSAT BALOGUN). She insults him and orders him to wake up to do his chores. Taiye stands up from his bed and leaves the room. He goes to sweep the compound just like his step mum ordered. As he is sweeping, he comes across what he dug out from the ground in the dream, he then realizes that the dream is real. He picks it up and takes it along with him

Taiye (BRIGHT OKWUAZU) is having fun with his girlfriend Ashanti (TOKUNBO LATONA). Ashanti leaves the room briefly and then Taiye falls into trance. His mum appears to him and asks why he refuses to make use of the spectacles she inherited from her father. She tells him that if other people have hold of the spectacle, they will use for either pastoral or imam work. She tells him not to disobey her but use the spectacle which is for his own good. Taiye’s girlfriend- Ashanti taps him bringing him back to reality. Ashanti asks him what he is thinking about and he says nothing. Taiye is upset with her for taking so much time to get her phone but Ashanti apologises to him.

Taiye is walking along the road when he decides to test the spectacle his dead mum handed to him. He retrieves it from his bag curious to know what is spectacular about the spectacle. He wears it and some form of power comes upon him. As he walks on, Taiye sights two lovers. Taiye trembles at what he sees. With the help of the glasses, he sees that the lady is a human in animal skin- a goblin. The girl tells him that he is seeing what he ought not to see. He is alarmed at the mysterious things the spectacle makes him see and hopes he wont see what will lead to his death. Taiye stops to buy a sachet of pure water. He sees a lady that is about to eat and notices that the meat in the food is bewitched. He exclaims. The food seller comes out and asks what the problem is. He tells her. Taiye tells the lady to allow him to bring out the meat from her plate, but she refuses while the food seller permits him. He picks it up still wearing the powerful spectacle and both the lady and the food seller see that the meat is bewitched. Taiye tells her that if she eats it, she would bloat and then die. The young lady asks the food seller who is also her mother how such piece of meat entered her pot of soup and she replies her that she has no idea. Taiye tells them that it is not their doing but their rivals who are against their business in the neighbourhood. Taiye warns them not to fight with their enemies as it would have a negative effect. He tells them he would dispose the meat for them. He stretches out his hand to pay the food seller the money for his sachet water, but she tells him not to pay, Taiye refuses at first but the food seller insists. So Taiye thanks her and leaves. The young lady is still terrified and tells her mum that she would have died if the young man had not come around. They both call different names of people they feel are their rivals and plan on dealing with them, but then they remember that the young boy with spectacle says they should not make trouble. The food seller decides to keep praying fervently and going to church till the efforts of their enemies end up in vain. She tells her child that the enemies are only envious because she just gained admission. Taiye, still holding on to the bewitched piece of meat, appreciates the wonders of the spectacle before throwing the meat away. As soon as he turns his back to go, the meat vanishes.

A fair and plump woman (SHERI KUDAYISI) while driving is lost as to the exact place she is heading to. She is under spell not to remember that she is going to meet a prophet in his church to collect her money. This is because the prophet (ADEWALE ADEBIOSU) with his underground powers has seen that the woman is on her way to his church to collect her huge sum of money which she kept in his custody. The prophet uses his powers to redirect her path and make her forget the address. The woman roves around trying to remember the direction to the church. She sops a young guy to ask for the church, but with no explicit description, so the guy is unable to offer help. The guy sarcastically tells her to search further and continue tomorrow if she doesn’t find the church. In her roaming about, she pulls over, confused about her inability to remember the church location. Taiye sights the confused woman and with his spectacle, he sees what her problem is, that the fair woman has given the sum of 25 million naira that she wants to use for investment to a prophet, because the prophet forecasts doom on her investment and wants to pray on the money in order to avert the doom. The prophet lies to the fair woman that he would place her money on the altar for three days, and they would pray fervently and do some spiritual works. He tells her to come back in three days’ time to get her money back but then decides to use voodoo on her. Taiye after seeing the vision shakes his head at the terribleness of humans. Taiye approaches the fair woman and tells her what has been done to her by the prophet and she is happy that Taiye has come her way. Taiye promises to help her. She tells Taiye they should go along with the police. On getting to the church, the fair woman tells the police officers to wait for a while so the prophet doesn’t suspect anything while she goes inside with Taiye. The prophet pretends not to know her, while the prophetess beside the prophet feigns trance. The fair woman insults the fake prophetess while the prophet tells her to go get something in the church. The police officers walk in but the prophet still claims he has never seen the fair woman before and that her money is not with him. Taiye with his spectacle is able to locate where the prophet hid the money. He tells the police officers where he hid the money. The prophet is aghast as to how a tiny boy, who did not hide the money with him, is able to know where he hid the money. The police search where Taiye is pointing to and find the fair woman’s box of 25 million naira. She quickly grabs her money. Taiye again exposes the prophet’s secret saying that he has a room where he is keeping a young child with a calabash on his head, and he wants to use the child for sacrifice the next day. The officers search around and find the boy. The police officers arrest the prophet.

A young man goes to a traditional midwife to collect healing water that women use when they want to put to bed. He finds the daughter of the traditional midwife who gives the water to him and tells him to rub it all over his wife’s body and that she would deliver safely. On his way to where his wife is, he passes the same path with Taiye. Taiye again sees a vision about the young man. He stops the young man and narrates where he is coming from and then tells him that his wife would die with the pregnancy. The young man infuriated at Taiye’s words, insults him. Taiye apologizes to him and leaves him while the man keeps insulting him. In the process, a call comes through his phone and the caller- Ismail tells him that his wife is dead. He is saddened at the news. He immediately runs after Taiye, catches up with him at the front of his house and engages in a combat with him. Taiye’s step mum (FAUSAT BALOGUN) comes out and the young man calls the woman a witch. His step mum asks what the problem is and the young man explains all. The step mum tells the young man that Taiye is just blabbing that his words are not real but accidental, that he should please ignore him. She ironically tells Taiye to open a church, where he would call everyone and tell them he has a vision of their deaths amidst other things. She asks Taiye why he didn’t see the vision about his parents before their death but can see for other people. She insults his life and then apologizes again to the young man who just lost his wife. The step mum faces Taiye and tells him to pack out of the house. Taiye pleads with her but she refuses to accept his apology. Taiye tells her that he has nowhere to go, but she tells him to go and look for his other twin and stay with her.

Taiye goes to the house of his other twin, Kehinde (ADENIYI KENNY) and narrates his incidence with their step mum. His twin accepts him but scolds him for not leaving the house ever since. She tells him that their step-mum and her child intend killing them after succeeding in killing their parents. Taiye tells Kenny that he can’t leave the house for them because it is their father’s house. He tells the sister that he has equal right with the son of their step mum. They teasingly drag seniority between themselves after which Taiye takes his bag inside.

Taiye is with his girlfriend- Ashanti (TOKUNBO LOTANA). Ashanti tells him that she is hungry and feels like eating a particular food. Taiye mysteriously tells her the food in her mind that she feels like eating which baffles her. He again shocks her by telling her what she ate for breakfast and how she coughed while eating it. Ashanti asks him if what people are saying about him being a soothsayer is correct and that he should please tell her the secret behind it; else their love life would end. Taiye pleads with her not to do so. He tells her that the secret behind his words is the spectacle he is wearing which he inherited from his mother in order to use and help people. Ashanti tries to wear it but Taiye tells her that it is not meant for her.

The fair woman, who almost got duped by a prophet, visits Taiye’s house but meets his step brother and step mum. The step mum immediately speaks evil about him and tells the fair woman not to come look for him in that house again that he doesn’t live there again. Taiye’s step mum tells the fair woman that Taiye is not his son and that she already sent him packing. The woman after hearing all their utterances against Taiye is surprised. She tells them that Taiye actually helped her and she wants to compensate him with a cheque. This makes Taiye’s step mum and brother change words again. They lie to the woman that Taiye still lives there but wont return until the next day, in a bid to collect the cheque from the fair woman. Sensing the confusion between Taiye’s step mother and step brother, the fair woman holds on to her cheque and decides to check back on Taiye.

A thug leader- Bugatti (TUNDE OWOKONIRAN) and his team are on the street, meanwhile Bugatti (TUNDE OWOKONIRAN) is chatting and trying to woo a pretty fair lady. But the lady tells him countlessly that she is not interested in him that she is already dating another guy- Mighty (AKNITUNDE YUSUF) who is also a thug like him. Bugatti’s persistence on dating her infuriates her and she slaps him, insults him and then walks away. Bugatti’s boys gather round him and ask for permission to go and deal with the pretty fair lady, but he tells them not to and that he would get her himself.

Kehinde, the other twin of Taiye is admiring her twin brother’s spectacle. She is tempted to put it on and is about to wear it when Taiye walks in on her and snatches the spectacle from her. Kehinde becomes suspicious and asks Taiye what is special about the spectacle that he carries it everywhere with him. She asks him about the person that handed the spectacle to him since she knows he doesn’t wear recommended glasses. Taiye tells him it’s their mother, but Kehinde makes jest of him calling him a liar for saying that their dead mother gave him the spectacle. Taiye shuns her and leaves the sitting room. On his way out, he sees a vision of his twin sister being electrocuted as she is getting off from the chair. Taiye quickly runs back to the sitting room to save his sister. Meanwhile Kehinde looks at him as one that has gone crazy. Taiye picks up the electronic gadget that would have electrocuted Kenny and puts it away; this makes Kehinde angrier at him. She mumbles some words and says that people are trying to make his twin her enemy.

Taiye goes to visit the CEO of a certain company. Jide (ODUNLADE ADEKOLA). He tells the man that his fiancé- Tomiwa (SOLA KOSOKO) that he is trying to separate from because of the little problem she has is his destined wife. Taiye tells him to either go and beg her in order not to use his hand to chase his helper or to be prayerful. Jide is puzzled, he just stares at Taiye and says nothing to him. Sarcastically, Jide thanks him and Taiye leaves the office premises. Jide then calls his gateman- Abraham and scolds him for allowing someone Like Taiye come to see him without hearing what he has to say first.
Taiye is with his girlfriend-Ashanti who is in the mood to get down with him, but Taiye courteously wades her off and tells her that he just wants to know how she is doing. Ashanti’s friend Koraye (PEJU BALOGUN-) walks in on them and hands Ashanti’s phone to her. She teases Taiye before leaving the sitting room for Taiye and Ashanti.

Taiye stops a pretty fair lady- Tomiwa (SOLA KOSOKO) on the road and tells her that he has a vision that all her problems would be over soon but she should be prayerful.

Another thug leader- Mighty (AKINTINDE YUSUF) is with his pretty fair girlfriend- Lucy (WUNMI ADEBOWALE) that Bugatti was wooing the other day. Mighty professes his love to Lucy ceaselessly. Meanwhile, Taiye passes by and sees the danger lurking around Mighty’s girlfriend- Lucy. He approaches the duo and tells Mighty that he wants to tell his girlfriend the vision he has seen about her. Mighty refuses to release Lucy and Lucy in return refuses to see Taiye. Taiye succumbs and tells the duo the vision of some people trying to gang rape Lucy. Taiye however warns that Lucy should leave the vicinity for two weeks and the danger would be averted. This vision doesn’t go down well with Mighty and Lucy as Mighty accuses Taiye of the one trying to rape his girlfriend-Lucy. Seeing that Mighty is about to turn his vision into a fight, Taiye quickly leaves them.
Lucy is gang raped by Bugatti and his men and he records the act. Meanwhile, Lucy’s boyfriend- Mighty is at Lucy’s place but she is nowhere to be found. Mighty tells one of his gang members Ogbara (AUSTIN EMMANUEL) that Lucy is not in the house and that she didn’t drop the key. He tells him that Lucy was fast asleep when he was going out. A bike man drops feeble Lucy at her house. Mighty sights her and sees how week she is. He tries to attack the bike man, but he quickly tells Mighty that he helped Lucy and did not harm her. Lucy weakly tells Mighty that Bugatti and his men raped her and then she faints. Mighty and Ogbara quickly rush Lucy to the hospital.

Bugatti and his men gather against Mighty and his men. Bugatti raises Lucy’s underwear to the face of Mighty and confirms to Mighty that he slept with his girlfriend. He brags to Mighty that he can do anything he likes without anyone challenging him. He tells Mighty that the pictures and videos are already in social media, and then throws Lucy’s pant at him. Mighty and his other gang members laugh at Bugatti’s acts. Bugatti is stunned as to their reaction after everything he has said and done. This infuriates Bugatti and he calls Mighty and his members’ local thugs who can’t compare with him. Mighty and his two other gang members- Tanso (OYE SHOYONBO) and Ogbara (AUSTIN EMMANUEL) bring out their guns and kill Bugatti with his two other gang members.

Mighty’s two other gang members- Ogbara and Tanso visit Taiye’s former house in order to kill him on the rape vision, thinking he also conspired with Bugatti and his men to rape his girlfriend Lucy. They meet his absence. Taiye’s step mum comes out oblivious of the harm they want to do to him, she immediately claims to be his mother thinking that they have come to bless him, but when Ogbara points out a gun to her, she trembles and tells them that she is not his mother but just a guardian. They spare her life and leave the premises. On their way, they see the woman’s son Shina (TUNDE SHODEKE) who hails them with so much energy. In their discussion, he notices that they have been to his house with the intention to attack and would return again till they find the person they are looking for. He tells them that he lives there with his mother and that they should please not attack her. Ogbara and Tanso leave Taiye’s step brother Shina and he enters their compound. His mum narrates the incidence to him. Shina asks his mum if they harmed her and she replies no.

Taiye’s step brother Shina (TUNDE SHODEKE) trails both Taiye and his twin- Kehinde and sees where they live.

Taiye and Kehinde are on their way home when Taiye sees a vision of a pool of blood. He begs his twin sister Kehinde that they should turn back but she shuns him since she can’t see what he claims to see. Taiye again pleads with Kehinde but she gets irritated and tells him that his spectacle is making him go crazy. Taiye ignores her words, holds her hands and pleads with her not to go but Kehinde forces her hand out from his and moves on, leaving Taiye behind. Kehinde on her way home stumbles on Mighty and Ogbara. They stop her and ask about the whereabout of her twin Taiye but she replies them sarcastically that she is backing him. They again ask about her twin and she talks to them rudely. Taiye sights the deadly men with his other twin and hopes his twin doesn’t talk to them rudely but Kehinde did. Mighty and Ogbara bring out their guns and shoot Kehinde. Taiye quickly runs to where she is but she is already dead. Taiye blames her death on her rude way of taking. He cries out saying if only she had listened to him that they should turn back. Not certain of what to do next, Taiye carries Kehinde and keeps her in an uncompleted building. He is thinking of reporting the case to the police but sees a vision that the police officer will accuse him of killing his sister, collect his spectacle and then kill him. He moves closer to where his sister is lying and blames himself for her death saying that if he didn’t live with her, the incident wont have happened. He holds Taiye’s lips blaming her utterances for her quick death. He cries and cries uncertain of what to do next.

Taiye runs to his girlfriend’s place- Ashanti and tells her that his twin-Kehinde has been killed. Ashanti is holding a gun and swears to defend her boyfriend- Taiye on the death of his twin sister. He says even though Taiye may be weak, but he has strong people like her beside him that would fight for him. Ashanti and friend- Koraye set out to attack Mighty and his men.

Mighty and his men are having a drink when Ashanti and friends shows up on them with weapons. Mighty’s men attack Ashanti’s ladies and they attack back. Ashanti shoots one of Mighty’s men and aims for Mighty. She shoots at Mighty but Mighty doesn’t die because he uses voodoo. Ashanti tries to runaway but Mighty quickly reaches for his gun from his back pocket and shoots Ashanti’s knee making her fall on the floor.

Taiye calls the police for help while Mighty captures Ashanti and ties her to the tree in order to Make Taiye show up. He tells Ashanti to say the whereabout of Taiye so that she can be released. He hypes himself and brags his mightiness in the face of the law to Ashanti and tells her that he is untouchable. He puts a gun to Ashanti’s head demanding Taiye’s number. Ashanti calls out his number. Taiye picks it up and Ashanti tries to get him to come to where she is. Taiye is disappointed with Ashanti for trying to betray him. Meanwhile, Taiye with the help of his spectacle is seeing all that is happening; how Ashanti is tied to the tree, Mighty’s actions, and this surprises Mighty. Mighty thinks Taiye is hiding somewhere inconspicuous and watching him from there, so he looks around to check for him. Ashanti tells Mighty that Taiye is able to see and know all things with the help of his spectacle, but Mighty still doesn’t believe her; he still thinks Taiye is hiding. Mighty dares Taiye to come out from hiding and confront him. Mighty threatens to kill Ashanti if Taiye doesn’t come around, after which he walks away. The police officers are puzzled and stare at Taiye who with the help of his spectacle say all that his happening. He tells the police officers that Mighty and his men are in the neighbourhood and that they should follow him. The police officers finally arrest Mighty and his gang. Taiye and Koraye go with them in order to free their friend Ashanti from captive, but Mighty already killed her. Taiye and Koraye weep bitterly. Taiye is embittered as he says Ashanti has sacrificed her life for him.

Jide (ODUNLADE ADEKOLA) and Tomiwa (SOLA KOSOKO) are in Taiye’s neighborhood. Tomiwa wants to appreciate Taiye for his vision towards her and advice. She and her fiancé wait for long but do not see Taiye. As they are set to leave, Taiye shows up. Jide is surprised when he sees Taiye, he tells his fiancé Tomiwa that he knows Taiye that he has seen him before; he tells her that Taiye is the reason he didn’t leave her when they had issue. Jide goes to his vehicle and retrieves a brown envelope and hands it to Taiye to show appreciation; Taiye collects it from him and thanks the couple. He also congratulates them on their just concluded wedding. Jide collects Taiye’s number and promises to still appreciate him better.
