|Disquiet In Katsina-ala Over Gana’s Execution by Nitah1: 11:48pm On Sep 09, 2020|
Uneasy calm and disquiet enveloped Katsina-Ala Wednesday following the execution of Benue most wanted criminal, Mr Terwase Akwaza, also known as Gana.
Akwaza was Tuesday afternoon forcefully taken away by a team of military men at Maseje, near Ameladu in Gboko local government area of the state and killed, while he and other repentant youths were on their way to Makurdi where they were to be given amnesty by the State Security Council.
According to sources from the area, some residents particularly in Katsina Ala, home town of the late wanted militia leader have started parking their wares out of town for fear of possible attacks by youths loyal to the late gang leader.
The sources said some boys loyal to the deceased had already started making threat calls against some persons who allegedly lured them into the amnesty programme which resulted to the killing of Mr. Akwaza.
A resident of the area who pleaded anonymity said, “My fear is what will happen in our area after the death of Gana.”
“Most of the boys are thinking that the whole amnesty programme arrangement was a set up.
“It’s their belief that Gana wouldn’t have been killed if he was not brought out for the amnesty programme.”
Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state Wednesday expressed shock at the killing of Gana by soldiers after he had denounced crime and was on his way to Makurdi to be granted amnesty.
But briefing newsmen Wednesdays at the government House Makurdi governor Ortom noted that even during war if people surrendered, they were protected and the case of Gana was not supposed to be different.
“The amnesty programme which was to take effect yesterday (Tuesday) followed series of requests by the traditional, political and religious leaders from the area to have armed youths terrorising Sankera to surrender illegal weapons in their possession and give peace a chance.
“Though over 80 repentant youths from Katsina-Ala, 67 from Logo and 25 from Ukum local government areas surrendered their arms and were being conveyed to Makurdi, only 42 made it to the destination following the incident that led to the arrest of Gana.
“The army also took away 25 of the repentant youths but today (Wednesday), five of them were brought back and they had to join the 42 that I have already granted amnesty,” he added.
A People’s Democratic Party PDP chieftain in Katsina-Ala who spoke with Blueprint on condition of anonymity said, “I don’t think I will step my foot in that area again. “I know what those boys can do and I am afraid they will not spare any of us.”
“When I got the news of the killing of Gana, I immediately called home and made arrangements for my family to come down to Makurdi. “Right now the situation is dicey and I don’t know what will happen next.”
In a reaction, Chairman Senate Committee on Power, Senator Gabriel Suswam (PDP Benue North East) condemned the killing of repentant militia leader in a statement issued in Abuja Wednesday, Terwase’s killing after turning a new leaf from crime and criminality by soldiers was counter-productive to peace already returning to the state.
“The events of September 8, 2020 in my senatorial district where repentant criminals who had surrendered after extensive persuasions were singled out and killed extra- judicially leaves a sour taste and has opened a gaping wound that requires all efforts to heal,” he said

and thesame securities including the army was taking group photography with those disturbing the peace in Katsina, Sokoto , Zamfara...but are quick to killl in Benue State.
Many criminals will pledge allegiance to Gana because of the way he was killed , same way Mohammed , the leader of Boko haram was killed , and today ,it's a different story, that they are granting amnesty to Boko haram... If Gana didn't come out for amnesty would the army b able to kill him ?.….Inasmuch as I know Gana as a notorious kidnappers who kidnapped govt officials and politicians , I know Gana has always been an enemy to the Fulani people , cos he is the reason Fulani dare not terrorise katsina Alla area....and the reason for his death...

Just like they are dealing with Fulani bandits who kill innocent people daily
|Re: Disquiet In Katsina-ala Over Gana’s Execution by yarimo(m): 12:45am On Sep 10, 2020|
Danwakae:if you want to pledge allegiance to GANA, beware this is BUHARI and not PDP administration
|Re: Disquiet In Katsina-ala Over Gana’s Execution by doctorexcel(m): 12:45am On Sep 10, 2020|
Keeping him under close watch and detailing secret agents to monitor him would have been more productive than extra judicial murder of a supposed repentant militant
|Re: Disquiet In Katsina-ala Over Gana’s Execution by yarimo(m): 12:48am On Sep 10, 2020|
GamalNasser:fulani bandits , IPOB terrorists or any other group disturbing the peace of others one day bullets of security men shall come after them anywhere anytime. the same way it came after GANA

Killing that guy wasn't d best option
|Re: Disquiet In Katsina-ala Over Gana’s Execution by Nitah1: 7:27am On Sep 10, 2020|
Danwakae:Is bokoharam now not political,where the military, traditional rulers, government officials are profiting from?
If politics is not involved,why grant bokoharam that killed thousand a cross the country amnesty but gruesomely murdered an unarmed man?
Did you think this country belong to Fulani?
know that as we voted Jonah out so shall will vote this government out of power at all levels.
|Re: Disquiet In Katsina-ala Over Gana’s Execution by jlinkd78(m): 7:28am On Sep 10, 2020|

|Re: Disquiet In Katsina-ala Over Gana’s Execution by Nitah1: 1:45pm On Sep 11, 2020|

Or you are just plain stupid?
|Re: Disquiet In Katsina-ala Over Gana’s Execution by Bkayyy: 2:06pm On Sep 11, 2020|
If you read through the comments on "Gana's" execution you'll realize how divided Nigeria's major three ethnic groups are based on ideology and reasoning.
If you see a comment castigating the government for killing an unarmed surrendered individual that person is likely (98%) an Igbo.
If you see a comment that celebrates the killing and still tag "kill them all", that person is most likely (95%) Yoruba.
If you see comments (which are probably few here) defending the soldiers and accusing Gana of being behind the killings attributed to herdsmen, the person is very likely (99%) Hausa-Fulani

There are saboteurs amongst those that organised the amnesty
|Re: Disquiet In Katsina-ala Over Gana’s Execution by Nitah1: 2:22pm On Sep 11, 2020|
helinues:I suspect the former Governor... Akume,he have not say a word since.
.Also i suspect miyyati Allah might bribe the military to do the dirty job.
|Re: Disquiet In Katsina-ala Over Gana’s Execution by helinues: 2:25pm On Sep 11, 2020|
Ortom should also be suspected.
How can he made such arrangements with the Katstina Ala elders without informing FG ( military) that has also placed bounty on his head?
|Re: Disquiet In Katsina-ala Over Gana’s Execution by kingzizzy: 2:38pm On Sep 11, 2020|
Yeah, you mean the way the security forces and Governor Masari went to beg the armed terrorists below to lay down his arms because he is Fulani?
|Re: Disquiet In Katsina-ala Over Gana’s Execution by Nitah1: 4:22pm On Sep 11, 2020|
helinues:No,he Orton said the military are well aware of the whole thing and that when the convoy was attacked by the military he called the commander ,but instead the commander told him that he will get back to later,that they are in the middle of operation.
