Plot

Twenty-five years after the events of the original movie, Andy Okeke (Kenneth Okonkwo) has become an ordained man-of-God, renouncing his allegiance to the secret cult which forced him to kill his wife, and the sect – now known as Brotherhood of the Six – has expanded into an international organisation. Most of the Nigerian members who survived the Otokoto riots of 1996 have fled the country apart from Chief Omego (Kanayo O. Kanayo) – now an Imo state governorship aspirant – and Mike (Bob-Manuel Udokwu). The film opens with Omego's son Obinna (Enyinna Nwigwe) murdering his young daughter Kosi (Charlene Chisom Ignatus) in a forest as part of a money-making ritual. In a nod to the original story, her spirit torments her father throughout the movie, leading to his sudden death towards the end.
