DISSIDENT murder victim Kieran Wylie was gunned down after being accused of betraying an Oglaigh na hEireann (ONH) weapons hide to police and setting its members up for arrest.

He was also suspected of providing cops with details of a paramilitary meeting that led to the jailing of a senior figure in the gang.

Ex-Provisional IRA member Wylie strongly denied the informant claims, and in the weeks before his death used intermediaries to contact ONH leaders on his behalf to make this known.
