Terwase Akwaza, Benue Militant Leader Surrenders 84 Rifles To Government by DONSMITH123(m): 9:04am On Sep 01, 2015
A renowned gang leader in Benue State, Terwase Akwaza, aka Ghana, has surrendered 84 guns to the state government.

Governor Samuel Ortom, after the State Executive Council meeting, said Ghana embraced the amnesty programme declared by his administration for residents of the state to surrender illegal weapons in their possession.

Ortom who announced that the amnesty had been extended to the end of September.

The governor stated that the extension of the amnesty window became necessary following a plea by the gang leader that he needed time to persuade some of his friends in the underworld to also surrender their weapons.

Ghana was quoted as saying he became a militant leader to secure his community, adding that he had decided to genuinely embrace the calls by Ortom for people in the state, holding illegal weapons, to surrender them and embrace peace.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Security, Col. Edwin Jando (retd.), disclosed that he received “135 assorted rifles and 770 rounds of ammunition from those who voluntarily surrendered their weapons, with 84 rifles submitted by Akwaza”.

The governor expressed appreciation to President Muhammadu Buhari, Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku; the Catholic Bishop of Katsina-Ala Diocese, Bishop Peter Adoboh, and others for their support for the amnesty programme.

Imagine 20 of this kind in Benue.

this is why NIGERIA CAN'T AFFORD ANOTHER WAR.

Arms proliferation has become terribly uncontrollable.

It means that this guy and his team can wipe out an entire village in one night.

The arms in Niger Delta and South East is shocking and OPC is not left out.

they have all embarked on arms racketeering and pile up since military era.

When i said every region in nigeria has their own militia,i knew what i was saying,,,in the case of Benue state,it is the basstards called fulanis and jukum that push us to carry arms since the government of jonathan and suswan were not ready to protect us,no one should blame Akwaza,he or his group never turn their guns on innocent civilians the way bokoharam,nigerian police,niger delta militants are doing.

Funny how Amnesty is now the solution for Government's inability to provide security..

The people who they hired as thugs to win elections now legitimately benefit from Amnesty..

When will graduates submit their glorified certificates and received Amnesty also? undecided

If you look at the comments above, you don't need a soothsayer to tell you why Nigeria isn't working. The leaders have realized that Nigerians are very emotional beings and lose their sense of reasoning on the alter of sentiments and ethnic bigotry..

It only in Nigeria that the term Amnesty can be abused and it's a shame...

I hear they want to give BH Amnesty also.. After killing thousands of people, leaving many windows and orphans.. The so called body language government believes Amnesty is the cure..

Other people will carry arms, wreak havoc on unarmed Nigerians and wait for government to offer Amnesty also.. This is the nasty trend we are setting and posterity may not be forgiving as I am.

Great.
Fulani marauders have retired since Buhari became President. After all, Fulani Buhari won Benue state. Unless the Fulani are heartless, they must not attack Benue people again.
