In 'Suffer the Witch', by C.J. "Fiery" Obasi, love and friendship turns into obsession, when a young college woman attracts her crush's interest.
The films star Paul Utomi, Timini Egbuson, Adebukola Oladipupo, Uzoamaka Aniunoh, Michael Ejoor, Nengi Adoki, Belinda Yanga Agedah, Elvis Poko, Don Ekwuazi.
