Anini 1 – A Nigeria Crime And Punishment Movie

Anini video documentary, based on a true life story of an infamous gang that reigned in Benin City, Nigeria in 1986.

The complicity of the police is believed to have triggered Anini’s reign of terror in 1986. In early 1986, two members of his gang were tried and
prosecuted against an earlier under-the-table bribe induced agreement with the police to destroy evidence against the gang members.
The incident and Anini’s view of police betrayal, is believed to have spurred retaliatory actions by Anini.

On December 3, 1986, he was caught at a house off a main street of Benin City in the company of a girl friend. Anini was shot in the leg, transferred to a military hospital, and had one of his legs amputated.

The country’s then military leader, General Ibrahim Babangida, demanded a speedy trial. Anini was convicted of most of the charges against him and was executed on March 29, 1987.
