The Nigerian military has reportedly killed wanted Benue militia warlord, Terwase Akwaza, alias Gana, yesterday evening in Nasarawa and no fewer than forty of his men were said to have been captured.



The Commander of the Four Special Forces Command, Doma Local Government Area, Brigadier General Maude Ali Gadzama 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.

Gana had been on the wanted list of security operatives after he was fingered in various criminal acts including the murder of the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Samuel Ortom on Special Security, Denen Igbana.

A bounty of N5 million was initially promised anyone who could give useful information that would lead to Gana’s arrest in 2018. The ransom was later jacked up to N10 million and then N50 million.

However, the militia kingpin who had enjoyed amnesty under Governor Ortom’s government had resurfaced after being in hiding for four years to surrender to government for a second amnesty following appeals by elders of the Sankera intermediate area.
