Gang leader of notorious ‘One Million Boys’ in Ibadan, Biola Ebila, has been shot dead.
The gang leader who has been on the Oyo police command list before passing away was shot dead around Olomi area of Ibadan on Sunday July 12, after trying to flee away from officials of Operation Burst, an Oyo State Joint Security Outfit.
According to reports, Ebila’s group had killed one Oladotun in a clash they had in May.
Ebila and his gang members had a shoot-out with the policemen when they went to kidnap a man identified as “Femi”. The gang members escaped the scene with Ebila’s dead body in a car and then took the lifeless body to Kudeti area of Ibadan which they showed to other members who did not follow them for the operation.
They unleashed pandemonium on Kudeti thereafter before driving the corpse to an unknown destination.
Oyo police spokesperson, Olugbenga Fadeyi confirmed Ebila’s death and also told The Sun that some of his followers wanted to foment troubles in Kudeti area following his death. Security personnel have also been stationed at strategic places at Kudeti, Idi-Arere, Oke-Oluokun, and other places to forestall breakdown of law and order.
