Nollywood actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo, who is the principal character in Globacom’s TV drama series, Professor Johnbull, will go head-to-head with highway miscreants in the first episode of Season Four of the programme, which airs at 8.30p.m. on Tuesday.
The telecom operator said the episode, entitled “Point and Kill,” which will be broadcast on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes, will highlight the evil deeds of highway criminals, who pretend to be good Samaritans only to cheat commuters of their hard-earned money and valuables.
A statement by Globacom said the new season of the series “is as hot, hilarious and didactic as all the seasons before it.
“We want to assure the viewers of Professor Johnbull that the new season will give them value for their time. The topics to be treated in the new season touch on the moral needs of a society like ours, giving all of us reason to go back to our valued cultures, traditions and customs even as members of a dynamic global village.
“Point and Kill” deals with a very germane issue and its relevance lies in the fact that many unsuspecting members of the public have fallen victims to the antics of these agents of harm, who stand on the highway to raise false alarm with the intention of defrauding their victims.”
The regular characters in the series, Kanayo O. Kanayo, KOK; his son, Churchill (Jnr. Pope Odonwodo); the restauranteur, Olaniyi (Yomi Fash-Lanso); the adventurer of the series, Samson (Ogus Baba); Ufoma (Bimbo Akintola), and Abadnego (Martins Nebo), all feature in the new episode.
It promises to be an entertaining episode as the drama unfolds between Professor Johnbull and the fraudulent mechanics on the highway.
Does the Professor fall victim? What happens to Olaniyi as he abandons the recognised motor park to ask for a lift on the roadside? Will Samson’s street sense prove relevant when it matters most?
These are some of the issues to be resolved for viewers as the new episode airs on Tuesday. The repeat broadcast comes up at 8.30p.m. on Friday on the same TV channels.
