"I sat down for 3 hours and listened to a former bandit and armed robbery kingpin who terrorised Southwest Nigeria in the 90s. Though he's now a pastor preaching the gospel, his story was intriguing. I decided to acquire the Intellectual property rights to his story and make it an action packed feature film. His name is Shina Rambo".

Who is Shina Rambo?
Born in 1958 in Ogun state, Oluwasina Oluwagbemiga infamously known as Shina Rambo was a notorious armed robbery kingpin.

Tales of Rambo's reign of terror in Southwestern Nigeria, as well as several futile attempts to arrest him made headlines in the 90s. The former bandit was greatly feared especially for his fetish methods which also made sensational stories at the time.

In 2018, an evangelist named Matthew Oluwanifemi resurfaced claiming to be notorious criminal lord of the 90s.
