I left Lagos by waters that day after that operation with my men back to Igbokoda, Ondo State, where we shared the money and everyone got his share of the loot. It was Ossy’s men who usually pick out our targets. They were the ones who picked out all the targets, my job was to give support and my boat is very big and my boat boy is a professional and knows his way around the water very well,” he told Vanguard Kelly also revealed how his gang members killed 9 operatives of the Department of State Service in September. According to him, the DSS operatives had stormed their hide out in Ikorodu where they had kept a woman who they kidnapped in early September i Festac town “One of our boys who was heavily drunk met us while we were interrogating the suspects after we captured them and he opened fire on them. I was at their camp at Ikorodu when the DSS operatives were captured and they brought them before me and Ossy and they knelt down and we interrogated them, but that guy, he was Ossy’s man. He was very drunk, walked in and without asking questions opened fire on all of them and killed them. Neither myself nor Ossy ordered their killing, we never wanted to kill them,” he said
