The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom,has failed to accept Army’s statement that wanted gang leader, Terwase Agwaza, popularly known as Gana was killed in a gun battle with operatives.
Ortom alleged that the gang leader was seized from a convoy of repentant militants on its way to the government house for a peace meeting.
Gana reportedly came to embrace amnesty programme in Katsina-Ala township stadium in Katsina-Ala local government area of Benue North senatorial zone on Tuesday,after four years of hiding when his death was announced by the military.
Before he surrendered, a bounty of N10m had been placed on Gana.
That was the second time he was giving up himself after surrendering a catchment of arms and ammunition to Benue amnesty programme of Governor Samuel Ortom, which the governor granted to restive youths in his first tenure.
Ortom alleged that soldiers abducted Gana from a government convoy of repentant militants in Gboko after he had earlier surrendered on Tuesday with 172 militia boys in Katsina-Ala local government in Benue.
Brigadier General Maude Ali Gadzama, the commander of the Four Special Forces command, Doma local government area, confirmed Gana was gunned down in a battle with operatives.
It was gathered that Gana and the militia boys were on their way to Makurdi when they were intercepted by military officials, Ortom alleged.
