A Finance expert and public speaker, Yinka Ogunnubi has called for the production of a cinematic story of Lawrence Anini, the daredevil armed robber who terrorised Benin City and environs in the 80s.
Ogunnubi said the story of Anini and his accomplices, Monday Osunbor and George Iyamu have not been well documented for the coming generations a situation that calls for the production of the story, in a cinema mode for the pleasure and knowledge of Nigerian youths.
In his tweet, Ogunnubi said; There is a generation of Nigerians who have never heard of the legend of Lawrence Anini and Monday Osunbor and the role played by a certain policeman named Iyamu. This story had everything. Betrayal, intrigue, crime and love. I wonder why Nollywood hasn't made a movie out of it.''
While there have been movies to represent the Anini story, there haven't been those that have wholly detailed on the events that saw to the emergence, domination, and eventual capitulation of the fearsome armed robber, and his belligerent accomplices.
