Owoseni said that he was killed at about 3.00a.m. on Monday in the course of arresting all members of his gang and other criminals who had made life miserable for innocent citizens.
He said that the gang members retreated to their base in Ajakpa because they could no longer lay claim to the creeks in Isawo area of Ikorodu.
The information has been corroborated by Maj. Abubakar Abdullahi, Coordinator, Joint Media Campaign Centre, who said that the Operation DELTA SAFE carried out the killing.
According to Abdullahi, the squad repelled an attack in Ajakpa Community in the creeks of Southern Ondo State on Sunday night.
He said that the attack was led by the notorious gang leader, Ossy Ibori, who had a hideout at Ajakpa, Ilaje Ese-Odo Local Government Area of Ondo State.
The Ibori gang had been terrorising parts of Lagos, Ogun and Ondo States.
Last month, the gang killed an army captain and two policemen in Ikorodu, Lagos.
