Gana benue most wanted criminal

The Nigerian army killed Terwase Akwaza, better known as Gana, who is considered the most wanted criminal in Benue State.

The commander of the 4th Special Forces Command, Doma, in Nasarawa State, Major General Moundhey Ali, told reporters Tuesday that Gana was killed at an army roadblock along Gbese-Gboko-Makurdi Street after a shootout.

Ali said about 40 members of Gana’s gang were captured in the process.

He said: “Around noon Tuesday, we received strategic information regarding the movement of the fearsome bandit Terwase Akwaza Agbadu AKA Gana along Gbese-Gboko Makurdi Street.

“The troops of Operation Ayem Akpatuma III moved quickly and set up roadblocks along the roads.

“Around 1 p.m., a skirmish broke out with the Gana convoy. Shots were fired and the bandit was killed.

By 2015 the Benue state government had granted amnesty to more than 500 people, including Gana, who had been terrorizing parts of Benue and Taraba states, but most of them became criminals again.

Gana was declared wanted by police later in 2017, while the Benue state government put a bounty of 10 million naira on his head.
