One-time Nigeria’s most wanted criminal, Shina Rambo, has resurfaced in Ado Ekiti, professing that he is now a changed man working for God as a preacher of the gospel of Christ.
Rambo, whose real name is Oluwasina Oluwagbemiga, confessed to being the same person whose gang terrorised some parts of the country for years and tormented innocent citizens with attacks, killings and maiming.
Claiming that he was now a complete child of God preaching the gospel in prisons and other reform centres, Rambo, who gave 1958 as his year of birth, said he was born as a native of Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, but was raised in Benin city.
“In my attempt to acquire black power then, I went to a total of 21 places, prominent among which were Minna, Niger state, and later Oro, in present day Kwara and was asked to suck the milk of “a possessed woman’s breast,” he said.
“I was in one of those places for 91 days in Idanre, Ondo State, where we were mandated to be sucking the milk of a possessed woman’s breast, as our only food and water, so occult powers can transmit to our body. At the end of the whole exercise, I possessed a total of 901 power images that can be used to cajole or disappear at a scene of crime and project the image of another person. So, if I was killed at a particular point, I had the powers to resurface in another place in another form.”
Rambo expressed regret over his roles in a series deadly crimes that held the country spellbound for years, claiming that he was misguided by evil spirits. He said the moment he accepted Christ, the spirit of God directed him to drop all his bad habits.
He added that his name after giving his life to Christ is Olawanifise Matthew. Rambo said contrary to several reports, especially by the police that he had been killed on numerous occasions, he is still alive.
Shina Rambo stated that the death of his wife and three children on a single day in the hands of those who came to arrest him, but did not meet him, was his worst regret of his former life in crime
“I was to be arrested on the fateful day but those that came could not find me, so they killed them,” he said.
