If you were born before the early 90's then you will definitely know this notorious Armed Robber, Lawrence Anini who caused chaos and shuck the entire Nation when he was still alive. The Notorious Kidnapper was from Edo State and he had gang members who joined him to cause atrocities in Edo State and the Nation in general which led to a State of Emergency that was declared for a manhunt of the Armed Robber.

Before he was caught and sentenced to death by firing squad, Lawrence Anini had children, and one of them is Osayi Lawrence Anini who is now a big boy. Osayi once said that she is very proud of his father and that people should not think that because his father was an Armed Robber he will follow suit.



Osayi Anini is a graduate of the University of Benin, UNIBEN and he is living a big life outside Nigeria. Osayi Anini said that whenever he is passing, they do point fingers at him, saying that 'See the son of Anini', adding that he can never follow his father's path though he is proud of him.

Today, Anini son is looking so great as he is living a good life; he has rewritten history by not allowing 'robbery' activities in his current generation.

Below are some amazing and transforms photos of Osayi Anini.



This young guy is gradually growing into a man and it is so nice to see that he has taken a different path in life. Please people should stop tagging the children of an "Armed Robbers" negatively because they are not like them.

Why post this? Because Anini is from Edo state?

Is Tinubu not more a thief than Anini ever was?

That cocaine lover bullion van stealer is nothing to write home about. You all needs to understand the era of Southwest media propaganda is over. Social media has exposed all the lies spun for decades.

In Edo state we don't praise thugs or honor addicts and thieves ask Bobby how far.

Resembles the father like a scanned copy, hope that is where it ends. The good son of a bad man? The mere mention of Anini sent jitters down the spine of all and sundry, they used to swear against policemen with the name Anini. It was after him and his gang were caught that we knew of the deadlier Monday Osunbor and the gun running DSP Iyamu. Those guys were Fast and Furious.

Anini, Nigeria?s most notorious armed robber


Anini
Lawrence Nomanyag?bon Anini, Nigeria?s most notorious armed robber, was born some?time in 1960. He terrorised the old Bendel State, especially its capital, Benin City in the 1980s. By 1986, his robbery exploits had reached such a terrible level that it became a national issue. He op?erated along with his lieutenant, Monday Osunbor, and others. However, one striking feature in the Anini reign of terror was police complicity. It was soon dis?covered that the Anini gang had insiders within the Police hierar?chy. George Iyamu, a Deputy Su?perintendent of Police, was their arrowhead.


Anini
Anini
Anini, dreadfully called ?The Law? or ?Ovbigbo?, was born in a village about 20 miles from Be?nin City. He migrated to Benin at an early age, learned to drive and became a skilled taxi driver within a few years. He became known in Benin motor parks as a man who could control the var?ied competing interests among motor park touts and operators. He later took to criminal acts in the city and soon became a driver and transporter for gangs, criminal godfathers and thieves. Soon after, he decided to create his own gang. They started out as car hijackers, bus robbers and bank thieves. Gradually, he ex?tended his criminal acts to other towns and cities far north and east of Benin.
The complicity of the police is believed to have enhanced Anini?s reign of terror in 1986. Early that year, two members of his gang were prosecuted over an earlier under-the-table ?agree?ment? with the Police to destroy evidence against the gang mem?bers. The incident, and Anini?s view of Police betrayal, is be?lieved to have spurred retaliatory actions by Anini. In August, 1986, a bank robbery linked to Anini was reported in which a police of?ficer and others were killed. That same month, two officers on duty were shot at a barricade while trying to stop Anini?s car. During a span of three months, he was known to have killed nine police officers.
In an operation in August of 1986, the Anini team struck at First Bank, Sabongida-Ora, where they carted away N2, 000. But although the amount sto?len was seen as chicken feed, they left the scene with a trail of blood. Many persons were killed.
On September 6, same year, the Anini gang snatched a Peu?geot 504 car from Albert Otoe, the driver of an Assistant Inspector General of Police, Christopher Omeben. In snatching the car, they killed the driver and went to hide his corpse somewhere. It was not until three months later that the skeleton of the driver was spotted 16 kilometers away from Benin, along the Benin-Ag?bor highway. A day after this at?tack, Anini, operating in a Passat car believed to have been stolen, also effected the snatching of another Peugeot 504 car near the former FEDECO office, in Benin.
Two days after, Anini?s men killed two policemen in Orhio?won Local Government of the state. Still in that month, three different robbery attacks, all pointing to Anini?s involvement, took place. They include the murder of Frank Unoarumi, a former employee of the Nigerian Observer newspapers; the killing of Mrs. Remi Sobanjo, a char?tered accountant, and the steal?ing of the Mercedes Benz car in Benin, of the Ughelli monarch, the Ovie.
Before September 1986 drew to a close, Anini, now an elusive dread, struck at a gas station along Wire Road, Benin, where he stole a substantial part of the day?s sales. He shot the Station?s attendant and gleefully started spraying his booty along the road for people to pick.
The height of Anini?s exploits, however, took place on October 1, 1986, the Independence Day when the state?s Commissioner of Police, Casmir Igbokwe was ambushed by the gang in Benin, followed by a hail of bullets. The police boss survived the attack with serious injuries. Earlier that day also, the Anini men had gunned down a police man with?in the city
Also, on October 21 of same year, the Anini gang terminated the life of a Benin-based medi?cal doctor, A.O Emojeve. They gunned him down along Textile Mill Road, in Benin. Not done, Anini and his gang went and robbed the Agbor branch of the African Continental Bank and carted away about N46, 000. A day after the operation, Anini, The Law, turned to a ?Father Christmas? as he threw wads of naira on the ground for market men and women to pick at a vil?lage near Benin.
Anini?s image thus loomed larger than life, dwarfing those of Ishola Oyenusi, the king of robbers in the 1970s and Youpelle Dakuro, the army deserter who masterminded the most vicious daylight robbery in Lagos in 1978, in which two policemen were killed. Anini spear-headed a four-month reign of terror between August and December 1986. He also reportedly wrote numerous letters to media hous?es using political tones of Robin Hood to describe his criminal acts.
Worried by the seeming elu?siveness of Anini and his gang members, the military Presi?dent, General Ibrahim Baban?gida then ordered a massive manhunt for the kingpin and his fellow robbers. The police thus went after them; combed every part of Bendel State where they were reportedly operating and living. The whole nation was gripped with fear of the robbers and their daredevil exploits.
However, Police manhunt failed to stop their activities; the more they were hunted, the more intensified their activities became. Some of the locals in the area even began to tell stories of their invincibility and for a while, it felt like they were never going to be caught.
However, at the conclusion of a meeting of the Armed Forces Ruling Council in October 1986, General Babangida turned to the Inspector- General of Police, Etim Inyang, and asked, ?My friend, where is Anini??. At about this time, Nigerian newspapers and journals were also publish?ing various reports and editori?als on the ?Anini Challenge?, the ?Anini Saga?, the ?Anini Factor?, ?Lawrence Anini ? the Man, the Myth?, ?Anini, Jack the Ripper?, and ?Lawrence Anini: A Robin Hood in Bendel?. The Guardian asked, emphatically, in one of its reports: ?Will they ever find Ani?ni, ?The Law
His arrest
Finally, it took the courage of Superintendent of Police, Kayode Uanreroro to bring the Anini reign of terror to an end. On December 3, 1986, Uanreroro caught Anini at No 26, Oyem?wosa Street, opposite Iguodala Primary School, Benin City, in company with six women. Acting on a tip-off from the locals, the policeman went straight to the house where Anini was hiding and apprehended him with very little resistance. Uanreroro led a crack 10-man team to the house, knocked on the door of the room, and Anini himself, clad in under?pants, opened the door. ?Where is Anini,? the police officer quickly enquired. Dazed as he was caught off guard and having no escape route, Anini all the same tried to be smart. ?Oh, Anini is under the bed in the inner room?. As he said it, he made some moves to walk past Uanreroro and his team. In the process, he shoved and head-butted the police officer but it was an exercise in futility.
Uanreroro promptly reached for his gun, stepped hard on An?ini?s right toes and shot at his left ankle. Anini surged forward but the policemen took hold of him and put him in a sitting position. They then pumped more bullets into his shot leg and almost sev?ered the ankle from his entire leg. Already, anguished by the ex?cruciating pains, the policemen asked him, ?Are you Anini?? And he replied, ?My brother, I won?t deceive you; I won?t tell you lie, I?m Anini.? He was from there taken to the police command headquarters where the state?s Police Commissioner, Parry Osayande, was waiting. While in the police net, Anini who had poor command of English and could only communicate in pid?gin, made a whole lot of revela?tions. He disclosed, for instance that Osunbor, who had been ar?rested earlier, was his deputy, saying that Osunbor actually shot and wounded the former po?lice boss of the state, Akagbosu
Anini was shot in the leg, transferred to a military hospi?tal, and had one of his legs am?putated. When Anini?s hideout was searched, police recovered assorted charms, including the one he usually wore around his waist during ?operations?. It was instructive that after Anini was captured and dispossessed of his charms, the man who terror?ized a whole state and who was supposed to be fearless suddenly became remorseful, making con?fessions. This was against public expectation of a daredevil hood?lum who would remain defiant to the very end.
Shortly after the arrest of Anini and co, the dare-devil rob?bers began to revealthe roles played by key police officers and men, in the aiding and abetting of criminals in Bendel State and the entire country. Anini particu?larly revealed that Iyamu, who was the most senior police offi?cer shielding the robbers, would reveal police secrets to them and then, give them logistical sup?ports such as arms, to carry out robbery operations. He further revealed that Iyamu, after each operation, would join them in sharing the loot. It was further exposed how Iyamu planned to kill Christopher Omeben, an As?sistant Inspector-General of Po?lice in charge of Intelligence and Investigation. But Iyamu was later to be disappointed as the assailants dispatched to elimi?nate Omeben were only able to kill his driver, Otue, a sergeant. Iyamu, whom the robbers fondly referred to as ?Baba?, reportedly had choice buildings in Benin City; proof of how he invested the loot he obtained from men of the underworld.
Due to the amputation of his leg, Anini was confined to a wheelchair throughout his trial. Iyamu, on his part, denied ever knowing and collaborating with Anini, but Anini The Law furi?ously retorted, ?You are a shame?less liar!? Anini had accused him before Justice James Omo-Agege in the High Court of Justice in Benin City. Of the 10 police offi?cers Anini implicated, five were convicted. The robbery suspects, including Iyamu, were sentenced to death. But in passing his judgement, Justice Omo-Agege remarked, ?Anini will forever be remembered in the history of crime in this country, but it would be of unblessed memory. Few people if ever, would give the name to their children.? Their execution took place on March 29, 1987.
