The story of the film is about a father figure (who is played by Richard Mofe- Damijo) who is trying to avenge the death of his son as well as clear his name from the corrupt police. This film uses fiction to tell a real-life story of how Nigeria has a severe corruption problem within the law enforcement community. This has been reported several types, but The Black Book shows how far the police of Nigeria would go from framing innocent people to assaulting people under their watch and then arresting them. The movie also uses the language of Hausa, which was used widely in Nigeria before English language.  

The Black Book was an action thriller film that pleased critics and audiences alike. Movies are meant to help entertain the viewer as well as tell a captivating story that can hook anyone.
