Obsanjo is the secondary antagonist in the film and portrayed by Eugene Khumbanyiwa. He is the leader of the Nigerian gang in District 9. He is described as a very powerful man in the city. He is in control of the cat food which is sold to the aliens. He also trafficks weapons (human and alien), and runs a prostitution ring.

Obsanjo believes that he will be able to use alien weaponry if he eats alien flesh. Which is the reason he tries to cut off and eat Wikus alien arm. His men are killed in a firefight against MNU mercenaries; he's later killed by the Exosuit, which explodes his head.
