Actors, actresses and movie enthusiasts gathered in Abuja on Saturday for the premiere of ’45 minutes’, a movie which focuses on the internal workings of detectives in the Nigerian Police Force.
The movie produced by Umar Farouk was directed by Alvin Mic Master, the chairman of the Nigerian Actors Guild, Abuja.

The tragedy leads to the deployment of top operatives of the police who initiate an investigation to unravel the death of the young lady.
The investigation, with its twists and turns, opens a can of worms including high-level intrigues which indict top personalities even as the detectives, against all odds, seek to solve the mystery.
In the course of the investigation, enemies are made, friendship cemented and long-hidden secrets unveiled.
