Army Kills Terwase “Gana” Akwaza Hours After Being Granted Amnesty By Benue Govt: “The commander of Four Special Forces command, Doma local government area, Brigadier General Maude Ali Gadzama on Tuesday confirmed to Channels Television via telephone the killing of Terwase Akwaza, alias Gana.
Gadzama revealed Gana was killed this evening in a firefight with military personnel.
However, the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, said soldiers snatched Gana from a government convoy of repentant militants in Gboko.
Earlier on Tuesday, Gana, along with 172 militia boys, had reportedly surrendered amid traditional rulers, priests, and local government officials in Katsina-Ala local government in Benue.
They were on their way to Makurdi when they were intercepted by military officials, Ortom said.
In 2015, Gana was offered an amnesty but returned to his alleged criminal activities.
In 2017, the Nigerian police declared Gana wanted after he was alleged to have killed “several innocent persons”.
The Benue State Government, at the time, placed a N10 million naira bounty on him.
In an exclusive interview with Channels Television in 2016, Gana had denied any involvement in the killing of Mr. Denen Igbana, a security aide to Governor Samuel Ortom”
Reactions From The People
The guy was a hero to many Tiv communities because he was a torn on the flesh of Fulani militia killing people in Benue.
When many people warn Benue indigenes that they should cooperate with the South they still think they are part of Arewa.
Fulani herdsmen dreaded the guy and the security agents couldn’t get him for years until he decided to answer the call of Gov Ortom.
Now I think the Fulani killers would move from Southern Kaduna back to Benue to resume their killing spree, Benue people should brace up for renewed herdsmen invasion.
He finished meeting with traditional rulers where arms were surrendered and they were moving to the Govt house when the Army snatched him and lied about a firefight with his militia.
The same Army which pampers repentant Boko Haram murdered the guy in cold blood and it’s a shame that the governor who is supposed to be the chief security Officer of his state could not protect a citizen he just granted amnesty and former Abia state governor Orji Uzor Kalu is even asking his kinsman Nnamdi Kanu to come back to Nigeria and he thinks NK will ever trust Nigeria officials?-Anonymous source
I don’t know why people can’t read between lines. The said Gana was granted amnesty by the state Governor and was killed by the military unjustly.
Why didn’t they kill repentant Boko Haram? You will never hear them kill even a Fulani herdsman.
This is also what is going on in Niger Delta. When they catch any Niger Delta militants, they kill them without fair trial but Boko Haram members are released and reintegrated into the society. And we call this one Nigeria. Cursed be any Christian or southerner that still pledge allegiance to this evil government-Anonymous source
