Benue’s militia leader killed after surrendering for amnesty
The notorious militia leader in Benue state, Terwase Akwaza popularly known by his pseudonym Gana, has been finally killed by the operatives of the Nigerian military.
Gana met his waterloo and was subsequently annihilated on Tuesday, September 8, three years after Governor Samuel Ortom-led government placed a N10 million bounty on information that could lead to the capture of the notorious militia gang leader.
Brigadier-General Maude Ali Gadzama, commander of the Four Special Forces Command of the Nigerian Army in Doma local government area of Nasarawa state, confirmed Gana’s killing.
“At about 13:00 hours, there was an engagement with the convoy of Gana, a shoot out ensued and the bandit was killed, ” Gadzama said.
Speaking on Channels TV, Governor Ortom further explained that the wanted criminal was killed during a crossfire with the Nigerian Army.
It was earlier reported that Gana surrendered himself to the state government on Tuesday, with the decision coming at the Katsina-Ala township stadium in the Benue North senatorial zone during an amnesty event.
He was said to have submitted some arms and ammunition to Benue amnesty programme established by Governor Ortom.
However, Ortom said soldiers snatched Gana from a government convoy escorting repentant militants in Gboko, according to LegitNg News.
“I believe that the military will protect them because the military knew what we were doing. Even in the military, when someone surrenders during the war, he is protected,” Ortom said
