Top 6 Most Notorious Criminals in Nigeria’s History

4. Shina Rambo

Shina Rambo is one name that has refused to go away especially from the brains of those who witnessed the nightmare of this criminal. With a name that reminds one of the movie “First Blood” starring Sylvester Stalone as John Rambo, Shina Rambo made a dreaded name for himself, launching attacks that made even the police force fear to battle him. It is fabled that Shina Rambo will rob a full highway with his gang, shooting sporadically like a soldier at war. There are stories that say he was killed in operation, however, some other accounts say he died like an ordinary man.
It is believed that the policemen who killed him did not even know that it was Shina Rambo. He was on his way to Lanrewaju Motors to buy a Pathfinder SUV when he was apprehended by the police on the Ojota New Garage Long Bridge, asserts Olusegun Kokumo Adaralese Raji known as Okuta, one of the armed robbers that terrorised the country for about 20 years. Rambo was not the one driving when the police stopped him and his gang, they discovered a lot of money in a cartoon in the trunk of the Datsun car.
When they started questioning him on the possession of such huge an amount, an argument ensued and he attempted to disarm one of the policemen. It was one of the policemen at the other side of the road who shot Rambo down. “They were able to get him because he was not with his charms. He was free of charms since he was not going for operation. As this was going on, the driver of the vehicle had jumped inside the canal and made his escape. The police just dragged his body into their vehicle.
They first carried his corpse around and later dumped him into the canal when it was dark, ” Okuta narrated to National Mirror. With several legends about Shina Rambo, there is a certain man of God who actually is Shina Rambo, having given his life to Christ. Okuta however insists that the RCCG pastor parading himself around as Shina Rambo is a counterfeit, stressing that the police authorities were irked by their not knowing that Shina Rambo was the one killed.
