The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Oyo State, SP Olugbenga Fadeyi, confirmed the death of Ebila in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Ibadan.
Fadeyi, however, said that he does not have the details and manner in which the deceased was killed.
He said: “The information reaching me from the Divisional Police Officer, Idi-Arere, revealed that his corpse and that of his colleagues who confronted the policemen strategically deployed to that axis were brought with a tricycle to Kudeti area.
“At that instance, two of their members were also arrested, so they retrieved and brought the corpses to the station.
“He has been on the wanted list of the police and the police have been trailing him.
“What actually transpired and details on how he was killed, I don’t have it now, but he has been confirmed dead.’’
NAN reports that Ebila, who had been on the wanted list of Oyo State Police Command was reportedly killed around Olomi area of Ibadan.
The deceased was declared wanted by the State Police Command for alleged involvement in the murder of another Ibadan gang leader, Ekugbemi, on May 12.
