Late Notorious Armed Robber, Anini’s Son Says He’s Proud Of Father After over three decades, son of notorious armed robber Anini Lawrence has come out to speak about his father.
After over three decades, son of notorious armed robber Anini Lawrence has come out to speak about his father.
The man named Osayi Lawrence Lawson has boldly addressed certain perceptions about his daddy whose notoriety in robbery led him to be captured in the 1980s and executed by means of a firing squad. Osayi Lawrence spoke of how proud he was of his father on Facebook.
He particularly said that he did not like the way Nigerians addressed him in public as if they expected him to be shy of his roots. According to him, he had no intention to hide his face from Nigerians because of the atrocities his father committed in Benin City and its environs.
As a matter of fact, Osayi went ahead to correct the way Nigerians pronounced the surname of his father. He hammered on the right pronunciation just as he also corrected Nigerians to stop thinking that Anini was his father’s nickname. According to him, Anini was his grandfather’s name and this was directly transferred to his own daddy.
The distraught Osayi spoke of the rest of his family including his brother Osaro, Anini’s mother and other living relatives. Even more, the man was particular about debunking the depiction of his father by Nollywood.
According to him, the film that had been made about his father by Nollywood acts was full of lies and misconceptions.
In a later post, Osayi particularly made sure to emphasize that although he was proud of his father, he is not like him. He professed to be cool and calm unlike his daddy.
