4. The terrorists murdered Major Chris Daniels, who they accused of treachery for abandoning them in Somali during one of their peace keeping missions.

5. The terrorists' ransom was the release of some prisoners held hostage as spies in Angola.

6.  The Federal Government denied having prisoners in Angola to avoid destroying the diplomatic relations between Nigeria and Angola.

7. We still find the scene with Saint Obi saving Rachel Oniga's son from a bomb blast hilarious - that African James Bond move.

8. It's 2016, and we think "State of Emergency" is still the best action Nollywood movie ever.
