Benue State Most Wanted Criminal Shot Dead During A Gun Duel
The Nigeria Army has confirmed the killing of Mr Terwase Akwaza, alias “Gana,” the ‘most wanted criminal’ in Benue state.
It was noteworthy that “Gana” was once given a state pardon alongside some other criminal in 2015, he later reverted to his old ways and this made the state security operatives to declare him wanted with #10m bounty placed on him.
The Commander, 4 Special Forces Command, Doma, Nasarawa state, Maj. -Gen. Moundhey Ali told newsmen on Tuesday that Gana was killed along Gbese-Gboko-Makurdi road following an exchange of gunfire.
The Benue State Government had in 2015 granted amnesty to over 500 persons including Gana, who were terrorising parts of Benue and Taraba states, but most of them relapsed into criminality.
According to the Benue state security operatives, they had laid an ambush against Gana and his gang members, the ambush which later resulted into the killing of the kingpin “Gana” and the captures of over 40 members of his ill-fated gangs.
Following the success of the killing of this dreaded marauders Maj- Gen. Ali now give kudos to the Benue state security operatives, whose logic brought Gana down and also eulogised the support of the good Benue state indigenes who gave vital clues to the subsequent murder of the criminal, he also urges the people and entire Nigerians to always be in support of the state security operatives, so as to proceeds in curbing criminal activities.
