Terwase Akwaza: Finally, troops kill Gana, the notorious Benue gang leader

Global day of prayer with Rev Chris Oyakhilome

A special Force of the Nigerian Army has eliminated a notorious militia leader, Terwase Akwaza, popularly known as Gana in Benue State.

The gang leader was declared wanted by Nigerian police for killing several innocent citizens including Governor Samuel Ortom’s Special Assistant on Special Security, Denen Igbana. The Benue State Government later placed a N10 million-naira bounty on him.

He was so notorious that he was behind murderous activities of criminal gangs in Sankera geo – political zone comprising Ukum, Logo and Katsina Ala local government areas and the entire Zone A senatorial.

An intelligence officer told reporters earlier in the day (Tuesday September 9, 2020), before Gana met his Waterloo, he was sighted in Katsina-Ala township stadium in  Benue North claiming that he wanted to surrender for an amnesty programme by the state government.

It would be recalled that the militia leader had surrendered and handed over the catchment of arms and ammunition to Benue amnesty programme of Governor Samuel Ortom in 2015 when he was pardon and later went back to his criminal activities.
