He said: “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”.
The latest development interestingly follows the production company’s impressive list of scheduled remakes, feature film already in pre and production stages.
Shina Rambo was born in 1958 in Ogun state with real name, Oluwasina Oluwagbemiga infamously known as Shina Rambo and 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.
