Shina Rambo, the most wanted criminal in Nigeria in the 90s, resurfaced in the capital of Ekiti, claiming to have seen God’s glory.
In a Sunday night interview on a Yoruba program observed by Ado Ekiti on Fresh FM Radio, and personally anchored by Yinka Ayefele, an ace gospel singer.
Rambo, who identified himself Oluwasina Oluwagbemiga, verified himself to be the once-terrifying armed thief who shook Nigeria.
He said it would surprise so many people , especially the police, to learn that the same man they claimed to have killed on a number of occasions was still alive today.
Rambo, who gave 1958 as his birth year, said he was born as a native of Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State, but was raised in Benin City, claiming that he was now a full child of God preaching the gospel in prisons and other reform centers.
”My father was a prominent person, and a soldier moving from one part of the country to the other. 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.
”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”, he said.
In a series of deadly crimes that held the country in chaos for years, Rambo expressed his regret over his roles, claiming that he was misguided by evil spirits.
He said the moment he accepted Christ, he realized that he no longer had occult powers as God’s spirit suddenly descended on him, directing him to drop all his bad habits and begin preaching about God.
Rambo said, quoting the holy bible abundantly throughout the radio program, that through his preaching he had won many souls, while a number of churches had also been established.
Rambo claimed that the death of his wife and three children in the hands of those who came to arrest him but did not meet him on a single day was the worst regret of his previous life as a criminal.
“I was to be arrested on the fateful day but those that came could not find me, so they killed them”, he said.
In record time, he encouraged the criminally minded to turn over a new leaf and have a change of heart in order to achieve divine redemption and avoid incurring the wrath of Heaven.
