Terwase Agwaza alias Gana, a wanted criminal gang leader in Benue state, northcentral Nigeria, has surrendered.
Naija News understands that the Wanted Benue Gang leader surrendered for the amnesty programme in Katsina-Ala township stadium in Katsina-Ala local government area of Benue North senatorial zone on Tuesday, September 8.
Before he surrendered, a bounty of N10m had been placed on the gang leader declared wanted years ago. This is the second time he is giving up himself after surrendering catchment of arms and ammunition to Benue amnesty programme of Governor Samuel Ortom, which he granted to restive youths in his first tenure.
But shortly after, he parted ways with the Ortom- led government then in All Progressive Congress (APC) after their relationship went sour and returned to the forest.
Gana, who was accused of the murder of Governor Ortom’s aide on security, Denen Igbana and was believed to be the brain behind criminal activities in Sankera geo-political zone comprising Ukum, Logo and Katsina-Ala local government areas and the entire Zone A senatorial.
A report monitored on The Nation by Naija News says the insecurity in the zone became unbearable, forcing Sankera led by Senator Gabriel Suswam and some elders in the area to strike another deal for amnesty. The report added that the surrendered gang leader was being conveyed to Government House Makurdi where Governor Ortom will again receive him.
