When the SSCU (Serious & Special Crimes Unit) was set up by the Nigeria Police Force, it was in response to the peculiar challenges posed by the biggest, most densely populated and most diverse city in Africa - Lagos. Headed and nurtured by its charismatic boss, the calm, reassuring DCP Femi Biboye, the unit is made up of an elite team of top detectives, handpicked from the very best across the country. The two lead detectives, SP Kelechi Farasin and SP Danladi Dikko are exemplary in their pursuit of justice. From backgrounds that couldn’t be more different, they are nonetheless two of a kind. SP Farasinaka ‘KC’ is on a personal journey to prove something both to herself and to her controlling father, while SP ‘Danny’ Dikko is struggling to shed the baggage of a childhood spent living on the wrong side of Kano as a street beggar. Together they form a ‘dynamic duo’, challenging crime head-on and earning each other’s trust, respect and above all, affection. They quickly realise that life can get very complicated policing the huge city of Lagos and they are routinely dealing what with they don’t exactly teach you in Police College. In Lagos, nothing is quite as it seems. From the grimy ghetto to the glitzy champagne rooms, crime is always at home. The terrain is edgy, fast-paced and unpredictable. The criminals are colourful, unconventional and often quite bizarre. Sometimes, you find things are just....different. That’s Lagos. That’s Nigeria.
