The film tells the story of DCP Mfon, portrayed by Nse Ikpe-Etim ("A Tribe Called Judah", "A Sunday Affair", "Glamour Girls"), who is resolute in unmasking the perpetrator who assaulted and humiliated her protégé, ASP Halima, played by emerging actress, Enwongoabasi Ibom. Traumatized and fearful, Halima's plight drives Mfon to expose the culprit and other corrupt officers tarnishing the Nigerian Police Force's reputation, despite fierce resistance from the top brass.


The film also stars Nollywood heavyweight Richard Mofe Damijo (known for "The Black Book", "Namaste Wahala", and "Merry Men") who delivers a compelling performance as IGP Ejiro. Segun Arinze plays AIG Omotosho, whose actions have far-reaching consequences. Mercy Aigbe ("Ada Omo Daddy", "Omo Ghetto: The Saga", "Beast of Two Worlds") shines in an undisclosed pivotal role. Other key actors include Tony Umez, Kunle Coker, Sonny McDon, Aniebiet Francis, and Richard Johnson. 


"Force Empire...aims to highlight and encourage the outstanding police officers within the Nigeria Police Force while also addressing the unfortunate actions of a few that have tarnished its reputation." - Producer, Ndy Akan

'Force Empire' is produced by Ndy Akan under her production company, Viensa Productions. Known for her debut film, "1929: Women at War," Ndy continues to address significant social issues through her work. 'Force Empire' sheds light on the issue of sexual assault faced by women in the male-dominated police force and the workplace in general.


In a statement, Akan said, "Force Empire is a film about justice. It aims to highlight and encourage the outstanding police officers within the Nigeria Police Force while also addressing the unfortunate actions of a few that have tarnished its reputation. The film reinforces a vital message consistently communicated by the leadership: that every officer, regardless of rank, will face consequences for any criminal behavior."


The film is distributed by Tribe Nation Theatrical Distribution, a prominent Nigerian film distribution company. 'Force Empire' will be available in major cinema chains and independent theaters across Nigeria starting August 23, 2024.
