Mighty, Ikorodu Cops’ Killer, Has Been Gunned Down
The Inspector General Of Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT) has shot dead a notorious member of the militant group that killed four policemen and an army captain at Isawo, Ikorodu area of Lagos State.
The Guardian reports the kingpin, Endurance Ominisan, known in the underworld circles as ‘Mighty’ was shot dead on Easter Sunday after a fierce gun duel with IRT operatives, led by ACP Abba Kyari at Ibeshi area of Ikorodu.
The operatives had been monitoring the home of one of the kingpin’s girlfriends, which he rented for her. The police ambush paid off as he came out from the creek to celebrate Easter with his girlfriend.
The police cordoned off the house, but the hoodlum climbed the roof of the house where he opened fire on the operatives. The police engaged him in a shoot-out after which he fell from the roof.
A police officer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity said: “On the way to the hospital, Mighty named other members of the gang and confessed to their involvement in the killing of policemen, soldiers, the kidnapping of Turkish schoolgirls and other kidnappings, but died a few hours later in the hospital.”
The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, who confirmed the death, said other arrests have been made. The IGP, who spoke during a working visit to the Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja, yesterday, warned that none of them would go scot-free.
