“The members of the rival armed groups had been unleashing mayhem on innocent members of the public in parts of Ibadan metropolis. For several years, (he) attacked, robbed and also inflicted severe bodily injuries on some innocent members of the public.
“Ebila had evaded Oyo State Police Command’s arrests for three consecutive times before he met his ‘waterloo’ on Sunday 12th July.
“The Commissioner of Police, however, wishes to assure the law-abiding members of the public that Oyo State Police Command is on top of the situation and again warns all contending interest to desist from any action or cause of action or be ready to face the consequences of their actions or inactions and the full wrath of the law.
