When men are after Tobi’s life for saving a woman who has been marked for death, Abubakar has to step in and protect his number one enemy – he wants Tobi’s death to come from him. The two killers eventually realise that they are neck-deep in a political conspiracy and manipulations.

His name is Khan. He has one unique mission: Tobi and Abubakar must die. The two marked men must do everything to save their lives. But nothing is ever as it seems. There are powerful people pulling the strings of disaster, and these two are merely puppets in something dark and evil.
