Coming from the stable of Aik Odiase production, a Nollywood movie, Conscripted is set to premiere. Conscripted is a fictional film that depicts security agencies’ patriotic fight against terrorism and other crimes in society. The movie premiere will hold April 28 and 29, 2017.
Shot in Abuja, the Conscripted features the producer, Odiase, as ‘Edge’, Chinyere Onah as ‘Pinky’ and Preach Bassey as ‘Brown’.
Odiase in a statement revealed that the movie focuses on the issues of insecurity as a global challenge, and why people should appreciate the unique sacrifices paid by security men in the service of their fatherland.
“The story plot was culled from the society, what the world and Nigeria in particular, is doing to surmount terrorism and all forms of insecurity. There were bombings, kidnappings, raping, armed robbery and other security challenges threatening the peace.
“Because of the increasing rate on security challenges in the country, three selfless officers were drafted and specially trained by the relevant authorities to combat crime. The gallant officers include: ‘Brown’ who is in charge of schematic ,’Pinky’, who is in charge of interrogation, and ‘Edge’, the head of the Special Anti-Crime Unit of the Police Force.”
