According to information gathered, the deceased was shot dead at Olomi area of Ibadan during a violent clash.

While confirming his death, the Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Gbenga Fadeyi, in a telephone interview, said that the corpse of the notorious gang, Ebila was brought to the police in a tricycle this afternoon.

Fadeyi said, “a report reaching me from Kudeti axis stated that the leader of a notorious gang, One Million Boys, Ebila has been killed.”

“His corpse was brought in a commercial tricycle. I don’t have information yet about the cause of his death. His boys have been making frantic efforts to prevent the police from having access into that Kudeti area for many days.”

To prevent breakdown of law and order, the police command has deployed its men to the area.

“Our men had been dispatched to the area to investigate the incident. When properly briefed, we shall be able to give a detailed account of what actually happened. For now, I cannot tell you much,” he said.
