STREETS OF CALABAR is a movie produced by a UK Production Company called ‘Spirit Creations’ and it stars Rita Dominic alongside Wale Ojo (from “Phone Swap”), the renowned Keppy Ekpenyong and UK based actors Anthony Ofoegbu and Maynard Eziashi.

SYNOPSIS: Chuks Oti, mixed-race 419 (advance fee fraud) scammer and illegal immigrant recently deported back to his home country Nigeria from London. Once there he manages to wangle his way out of a possible jail term and ends up in the holiday resort city, Calabar, living with his loyal, much younger British girlfriend Margaret, who insisted on travelling with him to Nigeria.

Chuks takes on menial jobs to make ends meet, but life is difficult .When he runs into his old 419 mate, Mike, a Nigerian pleasure seeker who is full of wild energy and loves to take risks, the two down-on-their-luck friends, with no jobs and no prospects, soon find themselves back in the criminal world

They become enveloped in a web of scams and danger presided over by the mysterious De Don, leader of a gang of underground arms and drug dealers, who’s hatched an evil plan to takeover the peaceful streets of Calabar.

Chuks and Mike are forced to become part of a dangerous covert police mission led by two internationally trained detectives to stop De Don and keep the streets of Calabar free of crime. But they soon find themselves the targets, as the evil De Don suspects a double cross.

Pursued across the breathtaking scenery of Cross River State by De Don and his guards as well as a raging group of Cameroonian “yardies”, not to mention one very pissed off cattle herdsman, time ticks down to an explosive climax.

Writer and former BBC/CNN reporter and presenter, Charles Aniagolu, weaves an intricate and funny story in this thriller-comedy, with a cleverness and wit that will leave you tense and laughing at the same time

    This movie looks great. I can’t wait to see it! Storyline looks so different to the usual Nollywood movies and the production values look fantastic.

    NR finally saw this at the cinemas…..(sighs)…. had high hopes for this movie but it fell flat. overly drawn out scenes that made it drag on forever…had quite a few mini jj bunnys running around lol! but it was nice to see rita dominic in a very different role (not normal gf/wifey/runs babe role). scores 3.5 on a scale of 10 for effort.
