War: Wrath and Revenge (2023) s01e06 Episode Script

Episode 6

[upbeat music plays]
- How did you know what I was
- I know.
[tense music plays]
You are smart.
It was only a matter of time.
It has nothing to do with you,
- believe me.
- Nothing to do with me?
How can you even say that?
[Buba sighs]
Khalifa went against the wishes
of some very powerful people.
- I'm going to need more than that.
- [Buba sighs]
[breathy] Khalifa and Sanusi allied
with someone in the presidency.
[breathes heavily]
Someone very powerful.
They wanted to keep
the existence of the mine a secret,
to exploit for themselves.
So they orchestrated the attack in Nanji
in order to scare
the villagers and anyone away.
We had to stop Khalifa.
So that you and your people
will be the only ones
to have access to the land?
Innocent people
were on that flight too, Buba!
A means to an end.
You know, I was gonna
do anything to protect you.
But that was before
I saw you in Bobby's arms.
What do you mean?
I saw you together.
In your office.
That was That was a moment of weakness
when I realized
that you were the one behind everything.
[tense music playing]
That moment was all
it took to shatter the illusions.
What is done is done.
The only thing that matters now
is that we move forward from here.
There's no moving forward.
What you've done is evil
and I will not be a part of it.
What are you going to do?
There's no one to go to.
No one's hands are clean, my dear.
Not even your close friend Binta.
- Leave Binta out of this!
- Oh.
That's not possible.
How do you think I
found out about Khalifa's travel plans?
[tense music continues playing]
It was your friend Binta.
[tense music continues playing]
[poignant theme music playing]
[theme music playing]
[Dikko] It wasn't my intention
to drag you into this.
no one dragged me into anything.
No one touches my family.
Sanusi was only half of it.
Binta should also be
rotting in the grave
instead of behind bars.
And as it turns out,
she's not even in jail now.
But I saw them arrest her.
She was released
and all charges dropped.
[in Hausa] What about Nuhu?
[in English] I seriously doubt it.
The Bulas are powerful
but not that powerful.
It will take someone of a higher rank
to be able to make these charges go away.
[in Hausa] And I swear
[in English] I will find out.
[Buba] I'm disappointed
you don't see the big picture, Alicia.
The land of Nanji is loaded
with gemstone deposit.
With that amount of money,
you can expand
your operations to anywhere in the world.
Oh, I see clearly, all right.
I see a man with no conscience,
who will tear down anything
and anyone in his path
because he's afraid.
Afraid of not having
enough for himself one day.
You can rot in hell for all I care.
[tense instrumental music playing]
[tense instrumental music continues]
[woman groans briefly]
[woman grumbles briefly]
[tense instrumental music continues]
Alicia meet Sambisa.
He used to work for Governor Sanusi,
but he now works for me.
He even tried to kill me
on Governor Sanusi's order.
And this is what happens when you
find common ground with others
as I'm hoping you and I will.
[in Hausa] I want nothing to do with you.
[in English] Then you
leave me with no choice.
[dramatic music playing]
[Alicia squeals and screams]
[Alicia squeals]
[Alicia grumbles and screams]
[Sambisa] Come here
[Alicia panting]
- [in Hausa] Go and sit down.
- [Alicia gasps]
[Alicia pants]
[in English] Let me go.
I demand that you release me now!
[both screaming]
[in Hausa] You can scream
all you want. No one will hear you.
And if you continue,
[in English] you give me
a reason to put a bullet in your skull.
[Sambisa scoffs]
[tense music playing]
[door slams shut]
[in Hausa] Mama, it's him
who killed my father.
[Alicia whimpers]
[in English] Who are you?
We're from the village.
[Alicia sobs]
Keep me updated.
I just got word
that Governor Sanusi is dead.
- [in Hausa] Did you do it?
- No.
How did he die?
[in English] He had a meeting
with retired General Loko
when he had a heart attack.
There was nothing
natural about the heart attack.
[in Hausa] General Loko is Dikko's father.
[in English] Sanusi had me
recruit Dikko into blackmailing the Bulas
into withdrawing from the elections.
[in Hausa] Dikko.
Is he going to be a problem?
[in English] He knows about the mines.
[in Hausa] Sanusi promised him 18% of it.
[in English]
Well, that's not going to happen.
I advise caution
if you want to go up against Loko.
We have a more urgent problem than Loko.
Boston Bobby Brown.
[engine revving]
[sinister music playing]
[call rings and drops]
Alicia Kama is not available.
Please leave a message.
Hey! I've been trying
to get a hold of your boss.
Is she in today?
No, she isn't at the office, sir.
She's not coming in today?
She usually tells me
when she's not coming in.
And she hasn't called this morning.
- Okay, just
- Is there a problem?
No, no
You know what? When she gets in,
please let me know. And
- tell her I called, okay?
- Okay, sir.
All right.
[gentle music playing]
[horses neighing]
For someone who is about
to become the next governor of Kowa,
- you don't look very celebratory.
- [Nuhu] Hmm.
[sighs] Not when it comes
at the expense of one's soul.
We all have to make
tough choices, my friend.
I have a confession to make.
Nothing surprises me anymore.
I've always known about
the gemstone mine in Nanji village.
[suspenseful music playing]
Okay. How long have you known this?
- About three months.
- Three
[Nuhu scoffs]
About the same time
Khalifa and Sanusi found out.
I was approached by
a consortium in the Presidency [sighs]
to make sure that Khalifa and Sanusi
did not corner it for themselves.
It required taking drastic actions.
Action that your wife
played a significant role in.
[suspenseful music intensifies]
[spluttering] Binta works for you?
I know you have doubts
about proceeding with the election
since certain revelations
were made by your wife to you.
But I'm here to let you know that
you're protected.
You're covered.
And you have friends in high places.
Okay, so
- So what exactly do you want from me?
- [scoffs]
Nothing that you do not want yourself.
[Buba sighs sharply]
With Sanusi dead,
your path is clear towards
becoming the next governor of Kowa.
As I would be the next emir.
Together, we'll make
our friends happy in Abuja.
And in the process, we would be very rich.
[stutters] And you and your friends would
Friends in high places would own the mine?
- And you as well, Nuhu.
- What about the state? Mm?
What about the people of Kowa?
How do they benefit from all of this?
They'll be employed by the mine.
So [scoffs]
So you're
the puppet master in all of this?
I mean, I I thought I was handling you.
Meanwhile, it's the other way round.
Nuhu, the trick is to make sure
they never see you coming.
That's how you survive in this world.
And Alicia?
She is collateral damage, I'm afraid.
Collateral damage?!
Like the villagers of Nanji?
Sadiya, her father,
all those innocent lives.
Oh, come on!
You're beginning to sound like Alicia.
Always missing the bigger picture.
My man, I think it's a time
that you better listen to her.
[Buba] I need
an answer from you, my friend!
- [horse neighs]
- [tense music continues playing]
[mans voice] Pending the outcome
of this investigation, ASP Katung,
you'll be placed
under suspension until the tribunal
that is probing
your actions on the 5th of May
that led to the death
of Nafisa Mohammed is completed.
Yes, sir.
- And?
- I'm done, Rabo.
I'm going home,
and I don't think I'm coming back.
ASP Katung,
I really need to speak with you.
- And you are?
- Boston Bobby.
NTSB officer
on private hire by Kama Aviation,
investigating the crash of Flight 7735.
How did you find me?
Your reputation precedes you.
Is there somewhere we can talk, please?
I'm sorry, but
I don't think this concerns me.
Alicia Kama, CEO of Kama Air, is missing.
So, go to the main desk
and file a missing person's report.
Look, I have reasons
to believe that she's in grave danger.
Please hear me out. Listen, please.
I uncovered a link
between the cause of the crash
and Buba Koda's oil company.
Everybody in Kowa knows Alicia
is dating Koda, so she must've
confronted him with the information.
So, maybe they're having
a lover's quarrel to clear the air.
You don't seriously believe that, do you?
I don't know what I believe anymore.
Today is my last day in the force.
And all of Kowa's issues
are now someone else's problems.
So, please, excuse me.
- [crickets chirping]
- [sirens wailing]
We thought he was an honorable man
who wanted to help us.
We were foolish to trust him.
Same goes for me.
What will become of us?
These men have taken everything from us.
I don't know.
I really don't know.
[Elkanah] Mom,
do you know you can always work
as a VIP protection person?
[Miriam laughs]
Seriously? Can you imagine me
as one of those guys?
In a suit and dark glasses, even at night?
I think you'll look really cool, Mom.
[laughing] I don't think so.
Okay, so, Mom, tell me.
What sort of work can
an ex-police officer do that you know of?
I can start my own business.
- Maybe going into poultry farming.
- No way!
- No, Mom!
- Yeah.
After all, Obasanjo went from
president to poultry farming.
[hooters honking]
[clears throat]
[tense music playing]
[man's voice] Move a muscle
and it'll be the last thing you do.
[in Hausa] Even a movement.
[in English] Your hand!
Who are you? What do you want?
You're investigating the plane crash.
And I know what
you think you have discovered.
- What have I discovered?
- Shut up!
You don't want this visit
to go bad, believe me.
Where is your laptop?
Where is your laptop?
- Look, I don't know what
- Move!
It's okay.
[tense music continues]
Double time.
Well, hand it ov
[both grumbling]
[tense music intensifies]
[both groan]
[glass breaking]
- [Boston grunts]
- [Sambisa grunts, howling]
- [Boston yelling]
- [metal clanks on body]
[Boston panting]
[Boston sighs]
[tense music abates]
You move a muscle
and it will be
the last thing you do, you bastard.
[Boston yells] Where's Alicia!?
[in Hausa] Nonsense.
[in English] You don't
know who you're messing with.
- [gunshot]
- [screams in pain]
You don't know who you're messing with.
Get up!
[Sambisa moaning in pain]
Now start talking. Where is she?
I need a doctor. I'm bleeding now.
So, you don't have time. Start talking.
I said start talking. Where is she?
- You either talk or you bleed to death.
- [whining]
- [tense music playing]
- [Boston heaving]
[phone ringing]
I'll get it for you.
Please, and put it on speaker. My hands
[phone playing ringing]
- Hello!
- [Boston] ASP.
[panting] This is Boston Bobby Brown.
I'm sorry to call this late.
How did you get my number?
I'm a man of many means.
This is a much bigger conspiracy
and we need to talk about it.
- But not over the phone.
- [Miriam] Mr. Boston,
I already told you.
I'm done. I'm sorry I cannot help you.
ASP, please.
I really cannot do this.
Innocent people die
while the guilty walk and live long.
I'm sorry, I can't.
Look, don't throw in the towel, please.
Just give me 20 minutes of your time.
Just 20 minutes. That's all.
I can't.
The people you're messing with,
they will not let this slide.
Just let me go.
[Sambisa panting]
And go on with your life.
Go back to your America.
You guys should be the ones afraid.
- Mom, can I say something?
- [gentle music playing]
Yes? [chuckles] I know.
I overcooked the vegetables, right?
Uh, yes, you did.
But Mom, I know you're having
a hard time deciding about your job.
Elkanah, I've already made a decision.
Well, I think you know
what the right thing to do is.
Right thing by who?
Mom, the right thing is not
always the easiest thing to do.
I mean, you taught me
that when you left Dad.
You knew it wouldn't be easy for us.
You knew it would be hard.
But Mom, you made the right decision.
And I'm so sorry. I'm deeply sorry that I
I gave you grief about that.
I'm so sorry, Mom.
I've been selfish.
- But I really do love you.
- Elkanah.
But Mom, we both know that
if you do nothing about this,
this will eat you deeply inside.
Please, do not give up
on what you believe.
At least, not for my sake.
I mean, you know the saying that
bad men win when good men
do nothing and that, all that.
Come here.
[gentle music playing]
When did you become this wise?
- I guess you were too busy to notice.
- Hey!
But Mom, so, call the man back.
He sounded so desperate.
- [crickets chirping]
- [sirens wailing in distance]
- We have to escape.
- The guards!
They can't kill us,
not without Buba saying so.
It's better than sitting here,
waiting to die.
[Sambisa groans mildly]
[tense music playing]
What is this?
Apologies for the mess.
Who is he?
- He was sent to silence me.
- By who?
Answer the question.
- Answer the question!
- [Miriam] Boston, please.
Who do you work for?
[tense music playing]
Buba Koda
and Binta Bula.
I want to know everything.
Tell me from the beginning.
I have his confession here.
But we're running out of time.
- They have Alicia.
- Do you have any idea where?
Based on what he said, she's in one of
Buba Koda's guesthouses.
What's it with me
and hostages in guesthouses?
- [Boston] What?
- Nothing.
Listen, if we're going to do this,
we have to do it by the book.
We don't have much time.
I doubt any judge
will be willing to give out
a search warrant
for the next governor of Kowa.
If we go in, we do it ourselves.
Boston, the last time I tried,
a woman ended up dead.
I'm sorry to hear that. All right?
But I have a plan. We use him.
Remember, a hit to the head
- as hard as you can, okay?
- Okay.
[child screaming]
[in Hausa] Help me!
[in English] Help me. My child is dying.
Please help! The child is dying, please!
My daughter, she's dying!
Please do something!
[Rukaiya grunts]
[both grunt]
- [Rukaiya yells]
- [guard grunts]
- [groans]
- [Rukaiya yelling]
[tense music intensifies]
[suspenseful music playing]
- [Rukaiya struggling sounds]
- [guard breathes heavily]
- [Alicia screams]
- [guard grunts]
- Move.
- [bullet firing sound]
[guard groans]
I said get off! Get off!
Move. Alicia, come on.
[Rukaiya heaves]
Come on. Get off, everybody!
If you move an inch, I'll shoot.
[guard screams]
- [gunshots]
- [Rukaiya screams]
[tense music playing]
- [phone calling]
- [phone ringing]
[phone dial sound]
[tense music intensifies]
[police car siren building]
[Boston] Open the gate! Open it!
[tense music crescendos, ends]
[Nuhu] How could you
keep me in the dark all this while?
I'm sorry. I know how you must feel.
You know nothing about how I feel.
I wanted to tell you so many times.
But Buba said to wait
till after the elections.
So, I guess Buba
calls the shots in our household.
Does he tell you
when to sleep with me and when not to?
- What? Now you're going too far.
- Am I?
Nuhu, this is business.
What you and I have,
no one can mess with that.
Please explain to me what you and I have.
I love you, Nuhu.
I want only what is best for you.
You know what, Binta?
Deep down, I know that you believe that.
But I can't help but wonder
if what is best for me is to be
as far away from you as possible.
You're angry. I understand.
You feel like you're not
in control of anything,
and it is unsettling.
But Nuhu, you and I are bound by destiny.
We would not be here now, together,
- if you had not killed my father. [sighs]
- [sighs]
We can both let our
pathetic emotions get the better of us
or we can look deeper
and embrace the fact that
we are great together
and carve our own path.
I know you worry about
how far this rabbit hole goes
with Buba and the consortium.
But be rest assured, Nuhu,
that when you become governor,
the real power will lie in your hands
and your hands alone.
- [tense music playing]
- [dog barking in distance]
[commissioner] Let me assure you
that the bandits that attacked your home
will be brought to justice.
Thank you, Commissioner.
Your presence here is appreciated.
It's not surprising
that you were targeted by bandits.
How do you mean?
I mean, everybody knows
that you're the next emir of Kowa.
And you would attract a heavy ransom.
You're lucky you weren't home.
I want everything expedited.
I want the perpetrators caught
and brought to book.
Please, deploy
all the resources under your jurisdiction.
Not a problem.
I already have Inspector Rabo on the case.
I want this chapter closed.
Nothing must cast a shadow
over the announcement of my emirship.
I understand.
In the meantime,
I'll leave a number
of my men here to provide protection.
Twenty-four hour security.
It is God who protects.
Just as He did today.
[indistinct chatter in the background]
I want the media
kept in the dark about this.
[auspicious music playing]
Sir, we have checked
the CCTV footage of the attack.
- And I think you need to see this.
- [commissioner] Ah,
this is very good!
Who's that?
- Isn't that ASP Katung?
- Yes, sir.
What is she doing here?
And shooting at your guards.
What is one of your officers
doing attacking my house
and shooting at my security guards?
She's supposed to be under suspension.
[anticipatory music playing]
She was the one
who stopped the terrorist attack
at the Bula fundraiser, right?
Put out a warrant
for the arrest of Katung.
And if she resists,
be prepared to use deadly force.
We need an explanation for that, sir.
Find Katung.
She's the only one
who can explain what we just saw here.
Please, make yourselves at home.
[child babbling]
[Alicia sighs]
This is one of the airline's guesthouses.
It's off the books.
We need to go
to the police with our findings.
- I don't think that's a good idea.
- Why?
Because it depends on who is involved.
Your friend, Binta Bula,
she was arrested recently
on some very serious charges.
All the charges were dropped
even though they caught her red-handed.
Same as her husband.
Buba told me she
was involved in this whole thing.
What was she arrested for?
and conspiracy to commit murder.
- You think you know someone
- [siren wailing in distance]
If it's any consolation,
she had me fooled too.
Money and power, it always changes people.
All this betrayal and murder, for what?
Some stupid gemstone mine.
The lives of this little girl
and her mother, shattered forever.
Because some people want
to keep everything to themselves.
There's very little any of us
can do to bring them to justice.
- They are far too protected.
- What does that mean?
We can't let Buba
get away with what he's done.
Trust me, I have tried. You won't win.
What about the press?
We can go
to the press with the confession.
It may stir up some scandal.
It'll end up on social media,
do its rounds, and it will fizzle out.
So I lose everything
that I've worked so hard to build?
[sombre music playing]
[sighs] Alicia, we have
very few options open to us.
Buba said he wanted to keep
the existence
of the gemstone mine a secret.
- What if we made its existence public?
- [Boston] Hmm.
[Boston grunts]
Hit them where it hurts the most.
[Boston] Sounds like a plan.
And we have Sambisa's confession,
implicating the Governor,
Buba, and the Bulas.
Sounds like our only way out.
We all need to rest.
And I need to call my son. Excuse me.
[sombre music playing]
Please. Where can she ease herself?
- [sad music playing]
- [Alicia sighs]
[sirens wailing in distance]
[tense music playing]
[dialer ringing]
- Eli, pick up your phone.
- [Rabo] Hello, Miriam.
Why are you with Elkanah's phone?
That all depends on what
you were doing at Buba's mansion.
How do you know that
I was at the Buba Koda mansion?
There's CCTV footage
of you shooting Buba's guard.
You're suspect number one
and wanted
in connection with five murders.
[tense music playing]
I'm glad you're okay.
I'm glad you're a man of many talents.
You had me worried.
I told you not to go after him.
This is a man I was prepared to marry.
I had to look him in the face
and give him a chance
to answer for himself.
Did you look him in the face?
[voice breaking] I saw the devil.
I know this looks bad,
but you have to trust me.
There's some big shit going down.
[Rabo] No, stop! I can't afford
to have you drag me into this.
Just come to the station
and surrender yourself, then we can talk.
We have taken Elkanah into custody.
Why are you dragging him into this?
Buba is pulling the strings.
You're considered
armed and dangerous, Miriam.
If not for anything,
just do it for Elkanah.
I'm afraid the end game
is even gonna be messier.
Buba is gonna stop
at nothing to have you killed.
The only way for him
to be out of this is with you dead.
I know.
[door opening and closing]
They have my son.
What?! How did they know?
There was a CCTV camera at Buba's mansion.
- Shit!
- There's even
a shoot-on-sight order for me.
So, I have to turn myself in.
I can go with you. I'm a material witness.
No, no, no!
We step out of here into Buba's sight,
he's gonna do
whatever it takes to take us out.
I can't abandon my son. I have to go.
Wait. I I Wait. [sighs]
I think I know how
we can take Buba and Binta down.
[suspenseful music playing]
Polling units opened early this morning
for the election of a new governor.
[reporter] Turnout so far has been good.
In many parts of the state,
governorship aspirant Nuhu Bula
has been clearing the polls.
However, the battle is not over.
There are still a few constituencies
yet to turn in numbers.
With the sudden and unexpected death
of Governor Sanusi,
Nuhu Bula has been
defeated in incumbent party
in many polling units.
Let's go now to the polling units
and get some comments from the voters.
Our reporters are standing by.
How was the voting experience, sir?
- [man] Wow! It was wonderful.
- [phone keypad clicking]
[car hoots and engine revving]
[street chatter]
- Please, please.
- What nonsense is this?
Please wait. Please, this is important.
- Please.
- I don't want to hear anything from you.
I don't want to hear anything from you
other than an admittance of guilt
for the killing of my brother, our emir.
- [in Hausa] Are you hearing me?
- [in English] How about information
that is guaranteed
to make you the next emir?
[suspenseful music playing]
Miriam Katung, you are under arrest.
[suspenseful music intensifies]
[Sambisa] Buba Koda and Binta Bula.
They're not who
they say that they are.[coughs]
Him and Binta, [pants]
they're the mastermind
behind the death of the Emir.
I mean, killing of innocent citizens.
[in Hausa] Wow, wow! What the heck!
[in English] This is diabolical.
[in Hausa] I swear.
[female reporter] Nuhu Bula, who is making
a second attempt at being governor,
Is set to win this election.
A far achievement
[Buba] I think
congratulations are in order.
Isn't it too early for congratulations?
Lighten up, Nuhu.
This has always been what we wanted.
You as governor and me, emir.
So that we can loot and plunder
and invite misery
into the lives of our people?
What makes me any different from Sanusi?
[smacks lips]
Sanusi is dead.
You're not.
[Sambisa] Buba Koda and Binta Bula.
They're not who
they said that they are.[coughs]
Him and Binta,
they're the mastermind
behind the death of the emir.
I mean, killing of innocent citizens.
[in Hausa] You mean Buba?
We'll investigate all of this.
Carefully, as it should be.
[in English] It looks like
your husband is yet to come to the party.
- [chuckles]
- [journalist reporting rom a distant]
He is fine.
You don't have to worry about anything.
- He'll warm up to everything in no time.
- [female reporter on TV] Right after that
I cannot stress enough
the importance of him
with our friends in high places.
Relax, Buba.
I told you I have
everything under control.
Perhaps you should be worried about
the whereabouts
of your fiancée and her Bobby.
She's of no consequence.
She's served her purpose.
We move forward.
- And the policewoman?
- [grunts]
It's just a matter of time until she meets
an unfortunate accident
while awaiting trial.
- [chuckles]
- [reporter continues speaking]
- [chuckles] I trust you.
- [news reporter] Hello, ma.
Can you tell us about your experience?
My name is Alicia Kama.
I am the CEO of Kama Aviation.
I want to let the people of Kowa know
that they have been deceived
by Nuhu Bula and his wife Binta Bula.
They are involved in a conspiracy
that has to do with Buba Koda
to corner a gemstone mine
in the village of Nanji
for a private consortium.
They're also the ones behind
the recent massacre in the village
in order to scare the villagers away
so that they and their sponsors
can keep and exploit
the mine for themselves.
We have concrete evidence
of this conspiracy
and we passed it along
to the Commissioner of Police.
I urge the people of Kowa to pay
