Jason Osu was shot and fatally injured on the driveway of his own home in a manner that afforded him no opportunity to protect or defend himself.
This was a despicable and cowardly attack.
His murder was well planned and was carried out with ruthless efficiency.
This has been a complex and difficult investigation and we are pleased with the verdicts returned by the jury.
"Only these men know why they carried out this murder and their actions have demonstrated how dangerous they are.
"There is no place in our communities for people who commit such violent and horrendous crimes.
Suffice to say the streets of Merseyside are safer this evening with the convictions of Croxton, White and McGovern.
"The sentencing of these men today should bring home to them the enormity of what they have done and the pain and heartache they have caused Jason’s family and friends and our thoughts are with them today.
– Detective Superintendent Mike Shaw, Merseyside Police
