arms-discovered-in-benueThe Benue State Security Council on Tuesday 18th Oct. 2016 dis­played arms and ammuni­tion as well as other dangerous weapons it recovered from a wanted criminal and cattle rus­tler, Mr Terwase Akwaza alias Gana who has been terrorising the people of the state with his gang.
Displaying the weapons at Government House, Makurdi, Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, commended the Nige­rian Army, the Police, State Se­curity Services (SSS) and other security agencies for their synergy and cooperation to ensuring law and order in the state.
Ortom disclosed that apart from the weapons that were recov­ered during the carrot approach of the amnesty programme, the se­curity operatives, have now com­menced the stick approach which led to the recovery of more arms, arrest of criminals and vowed that all criminal
acts such as, assassina­tions, cultism and armed robbery shall become a thing of the past in the state.
‘’Since Gana and his group have vowed that the citizens of the state would not sleep with their eyes closed, the security agencies in collaboration with Benue State government have also vowed that Benue citizens must sleep with their eyes closed and the security would do everything possible to apprehend the wanted criminal and his gang,’’ he stated.
Governor Ortom further re­stated that Gana and his group will not find a resting place be­cause security operatives will con­tinue to pursue them to their hole to apprehend them, saying that when they are caught, they will be made to face the full wrath of the law, and added that by the grace of God Gana must be arrested, “why should someone possess these kind of weapons to kill human be­ings”? he asked.
Items recovered, including two rocket casings, one carton of ex­plosives, military uniforms, mili­tary helmet, a bunch of charms, 10 mobile phones, two bags of In­dia hemp, one Dane gun, and one red motor cycle power bike were from Gana’s gang at Gbishe.
