There is a sequel in the works for the 2001 masterpiece “Issakaba.”
The announcement was posted on Instagram earlier today, Saturday, January 27, 2024, by actor Sam Dede. As the director, Lancelot Imasuen is back.
The main character, Dede, who is returning, talked a little bit about the production. “ISSAKABA!!! The Myth returns. A RIVER DOES NOT FLOW THROUGH A FOREST WITHOUT BRINGING DOWN TREES. Men with evil minds lurk in the dark. But….. JUSTICE IS MINE” , he exclaimed.
The beginning of primary photography has also been confirmed by publicly available video snippets.
Unusual Phyna, an alum of Big Brother Naija, and Chidi Mokeme have reportedly joined the cast, according to Shock Ng.
Anagrammatically speaking, Issakaba is based on a local vigilante group known as.
Bakassi Boys to combat crimes that cause fear and alarm in the community, such as armed robberies and murder cases.
The Issakaba Boys, under the leadership of Ebube (Dede), were forced to battle armed bandits who were causing fear in their neighborhood. Because of the mystical charm that the armed robbers possessed, Ebube and the other members of the Issakaba Boys were able to defeat them thanks to newfound abilities.
Twenty-three years after the release of the first installment, the critically acclaimed action franchise from Nigeria returns. This next project is not a remake; rather, it is a sequel.
