Kuto was always filled with laughter. It was one of the things that made him so loved by his friends and family. Even in the tough times, Kuto could always be counted on to make everyone around him smile.
But now, Kuto is in Benin. And he’s not laughing anymore.

But worst of all are the voices… The voices that whisper to him in the darkness, telling him to do terrible things… Things that he would never even dream of doing back home in Nigeria. Things that fill him with dread and terror just to think about them…
