The story of Shina Rambo has found its place in the history of Nigeria. This is the true story of a man, the historical account of a reign characterized by every synonym of the word ‘terror’. Shina Rambo was a household name in the underworld; a name that sent shivers down people’s spines in southwestern Nigeria in the 1990s.

Who Is Shina Rambo?

Shina Rambo was born in 1958 (another source claimed 1963) in Abeokuta, the present capital of Ogun State. His father, a military man, was a native of Abeokuta and his mother, a native of Sabongida-Ora in Edo state.

As a child, Shina Rambo was abused by his father who was said to be a rogue military man. On one occasion did his father shoot a gun at him but missed, this was after young Shina was caught assembling a gun. On a subsequent occasion, his father allegedly cut his leg with a cutlass and this made him leave home never to return.

Shina Rambo’s Reign of Terror

Shina Rambo was famous during his time like other notorious armed robbers in Nigerian history such as Lawrence Anini, Ishola Oyenusi, Babatunde Folorunsho etc.

He was extraordinarily fearsome, mean and notorious to the extent that he seemed invincible to people back then. It was reported that even the police feared him. His daring raids led to the death of scores of policemen and civilians.

OldNaija gathered that Shina Rambo was a fetish and got involved in many human sacrifices one of which include pounding 27 newborn babies in a mortar. It was also claimed that he cut off 100 human tongues which he cooked and ate for spiritual powers.

Turning Point

It was while in prison that Shina Rambo’s life took a turn. He met the famous Prophet T.O Obadare who ministered to him. He then ‘gave his life to Christ’ and was later released during the regime of President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Controversy Surrounding Shina Rambo
Some people believe that this claim by Evangelist Mathew Oluwanifemi to be the dreaded Shina Rambo is nothing but lies upon lies. They said the real and original Shina Rambo had died back in the 1990s.

This has generated a series of questions like – Is Mathew Oluwanifemi Shina Rambo? Who is Shina Rambo? Did Shina Rambo actually exist? Is Shina Rambo now a pastor?

Controversy or not, one thing is certain, Shina Rambo existed and during his life, he was a living terror to the people of Nigeria and the neighbouring country of Benin Republic…..Fínd Óut Móre
