Mose Jakande is the secondary antagonist of the 2015 global action blockbuster hit film Furious 7 and a posthumous antagonist in its 2017 sequel The Fate of the Furious. He is a notorious terrorist leader and a short-term ally of Deckard Shaw.
Mose Jakande was born in Nigeria in 1972 and is of French Nigerian descent. A mercenary and owner of a private military company, Jakande made a name for himself as a terrorist for hire in the criminal world.
Before the Movie
At some point, Jakande abducted a young hacker by the name of Ramsey, who designed a specialized hacking device known as the "God's Eye". Because the device allowed its user to access all of the technology, Jakande intended to use it for his superior, Cipher.
However, because Ramsey had sent the device elsewhere, they were unable to obtain it. Jakande's subordinate, Louis Kiet, was in charge of leading a heavily-armed convoy guarding Ramsey through the Caucasus Mountains near Azerbaijan to him.
Mr. Nobody debriefs Dominic Toretto and his crew about Jakande on the stipulation that would help Dominic find ex-British Special Forces assassin Deckard Shaw in exchange for stopping Jakande from obtaining God's Eye.
Dominic and the others pursue and attack Jakande's convoy, and successfully rescue Ramsey. When Dominic and Ramsey are separated from the others, Jakande and the rest of his men pursue Dominic and Ramsey. When they have them cornered at the edge of a cliff, Jakande steps out of his car and tries to barter for the release of Ramsey in exchange for Dominic's survival. Dominic, however, refuses and drives his Dodge Charger over the cliff-side. Surprised, Jakande watches the car tumble down the cliff.
Prior to arriving in Abu Dhabi, Jakande enters into an alliance with Shaw. In Abu Dhabi, Jakande ambushes Dominic, Brian, Mr. Nobody and his covert ops team - providing reinforcements for Shaw in the process. During the shootout, Jakande personally kills Mr. Nobody's right-hand man Sheppard, whilst Mr. Nobody himself gets shot by Kiet. Despite surviving the gunshot wound, Mr. Nobody along with both Dominic and Brian are all forced forced to leave the God's Eye behind to escape certain death. With the God's Eye in his grasp, Jakande follows Shaw to Los Angeles to eliminate Ramsey and the rest of Dominic's crew. Jakande pursues her in a stealth helicopter using the device.
When he realizes that Ramsey is trying to hack her device, he deploys a high-speed drone to destroy the radio tower she was using to hijack the device. He attempts to kill Ramsey several times, who is being passed off from former FBI agent Brian O'Conner to Roman Pearce and Tej Parker until she finally paired with Letty Ortiz. Letty and Ramsey are almost killed by the drone when a recovered Luke Hobbs crashes it using an ambulance.
Before he loses complete control of the the God's Eye, Jakande spots Dominic and Shaw fighting on the top of a parking garage. Deciding that Shaw is no longer useful to him, he launched a missile at the garage. The damage inflicted on the garage nearly killed Shaw, but he survived. When Ramsey successfully hacks the God's Eye, he loses control of the device. Enraged, Jakande opens fire on Letty's car, where Ramsey still is.
While Hobbs retaliates with the mini gun the drone was armed with, he is unable to bring Jakande's helicopter down. Jakande is finally killed when Dominic hooks Shaw's bag of hand grenades at the bottom of his helicopter, allowing Hobbs to open fire on the bag with his signature revolver. The resulting explosion destroys the helicopter and kills Jakande.
The Fate of the Furious
Jakande doesn't physically appear in The Fate of the Furious (due him already being dead), but he is mentioned a few times and is seen in a photograph on Ramsey's computer. He is indirectly mentioned by Letty when she reminds Ramsey that Dom had saved her from him when she accuses Dom of going rogue - due to Cipher coercing Dominic into working for her against his own crew. Jakande is mentioned again by Ramsey when she finds out that Cipher's enforcer, Connor Rhodes, had ties with him in the past.

Some fans think he is the main antagonist of Furious 7, because he is the main threat to Dominic Toretto's crew. But he has less screen time and ends up being a somewhat acquainted ally to Deckard Shaw, who is the film's main antagonist and has more screen time than him.
