Foreign Gods Inc. is a story of a New York-based Nigerian Cab driver, who fuelled by desperation of not fitting into the social-economic and Corporate America, sets out to steal the statue of an ancient war deity from his home village in Nigeria and sell it to a New York gallery.
Ike is a trained and fully qualified Economists, but his strong mixture of Igbo accent became his arch enemy, as it his blessing of his mother tongue became a strong barrier to his fitting into the Corporate World in New York, United States of America.
While in Nigeria to execute his mission of stealing a deity, Ike was faced with so many obstacles including how to deal with his family, old friends and cover his tracks.
He was also faced with the difficulty of trying to solve the equation of making the deity disappear without a trace back to him, but he must first solve the mounting conflict between Christians in his community and those who worship the deity.
