- Gana's controversial killing is still generating a ripple of controversy
- Leaders of the Sankera geopolitical group who negotiated Gana's aborted amnesty are now in fear
- The Benue's notorious criminal was killed by men of the military after opting for peace and amnesty
The controversial killing of Terwase Agwaza popularly known as Gana has hit another dimension as those who negotiated for the notorious criminal's amnesty are now reportedly on the run amid fear of being targeted by irate youths.
Legit.ng recalls that Gana was killed by the operatives of the Nigerian military on September 8.
The notorious criminal met his waterloo and was subsequently annihilated three years after Governor Ortom-led government placed a N10 million bounty on information that could lead to his arrest.
Brigadier-General Maude Ali Gadzama, commander of the Four Special Forces Command of the Nigerian Army in Doma local government area of Nasarawa state, confirmed Gana's killing.
As controversy continues to trail the death of the Benue state's most wanted criminal, Richard Gbande and other leaders of the Sankera geopolitical bloc said they are in fear.
Addressing journalists in Makurdi Gbande, who is a House of Representatives member representing Logo/Ukum/Katsina-Ala, said since Gana's death there has been an impression that he and his gang were deliberately handed over to the military.
“The way Gana was killed by the military has created the impression that we lured him to his killers. It is sad because our youths will not believe whatever we tell them anymore," Gbande said.
"As it is, we are also scared because people are not happy with what happened. If the military had caught him in the bush, it would have been a different story; but the fact that we, the leaders, ensured that he embraced amnesty and in doing so he got killed by the military, creates the impression out there that we sold him out, which is completely untrue.”
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the controversy trailing the death of Gana took a new dimension as some Benue youths under the auspice of Federation of Jukun Youths (FJY) commended the military for killing the notorious criminal.
In a statement signed by the body's national president, Agbujoro Agya Agbujoro, the youths said the death of Gana is a big victory in the fight against insecurity in Benue state.
Agbujoro described the criminal's death as "far-reaching success", wondering why Tiv youths were disgruntled by the death of Gana.
