Amadin Ogbewe



Osayi Lawrence Lawson, son of notorious armed robber, Anini has said that he is proud of his father and not ashamed to identify as his son.

Recall that the second son of Lawrence Anini, the notorious armed robber who was executed alongside his gang members in 1987, spoke out days ago after three decades of silence.  

Osayi decided to address the issues surrounding his family and how people discriminated against him. 

He claimed that people would always point fingers at him whenever he went out in a bid to shame him for being an armed robber’s son. 

He said he was not hiding his identity and that he was proud of his father. Osayi who wore black and carried dread locks, said he wanted to use the video to clarify some things about his late father.

He also condemned the movie producers who made a movie about his father which he said was inaccurate.

He said

“His name is not Nomayankpon as stated in the movie. Anini is not an alias but my grandfather’s name. If I am walking, people always pointed me out saying ‘see Anini pikin.’ I was somewhere yesterday and people were saying many things about Anini.

“I am not hiding my identity. I have used that name to take the Nigeria government to court for years. I am proud of my father. If the way he runs things is not okey by you, that is your opinion but he is my father.

“We are two brothers. The other one is called Osaro. There is no need for people to be pointing out at me. My grandmother is still alive. I will release the true story of Anini by this month end. There is nothing real in that drama about Anini.”

However replying critics over the controversy his video generated, 

He wrote;

Am cool and calm very very different from what you think ask those that really know me.all sons are not always like their father
