Jade Osiberu’s action-pack movie follows Wale and Akin (played by Folarin Falana popularly known as Falz and Tobi Bakare) two brothers who became orphans at a young age when their parents were killed on New Year’s Day, on their way home from the traditional crossover service that had been held in a church. Growing into adults Wale joins the police force, while Akin becomes a criminal of the law who joins a gang of brothers. The climax of the film sees Wale taxed to hunt his brother and the gang of robbers down.

The award-winning Ugandan filmmaker Loukman Ali’s crystal-clear cinematography is proof that Nollywood studios recruit outside talent to produce films that appeal to the country’s expanding filmgoers.

Although it hasn’t been confirmed, the film may be making its way to Prime Video Naija once it has completed its run in theaters to continue competition with King Of Thieves on the same streaming platform. Greoh Studios has partnered with the streamers and is getting ready to release Gangs of Lagos, its first-ever Nollywood original film.
