Gana: Army Wants Ortom To Pay The N50M Bounty Placed On Terwase Agwaza by Islie: 8:09am On Sep 11
The Nigerian Army is pushing for the payment of the N50 million bounty placed on wanted terrorist gang leader Terwase Agwaza (a.k.a Gana) by Benue Governor Samuel Ortom.

The request came barely 72 hours after Agwaza was killed by troops during an operation by Special Forces Command in Doma, Nasarawa State.

It also came on a day the governor resolved to push ahead with a planned amnesty programme designed by his administration for repentant criminals, despite Agwaza’s death.

A top source in the military, who spoke in confidence with The Nation, said the Army is waiting to see whether or not the governor will fulfill his promise.

The source said the fulfillment of the pledge will determine the extent of the backing from political authority for the military.

The source said: “Our Special Forces have eliminated a notorious criminal/terrorist gang leader, Terwase Agwaza, who has been terrorizing Benue State and environs for too long. He had been on the wanted list of security agencies.

“The Nigerian Army Special Forces Command in Doma Nasarawa State conducted a special operation that helped in destroying notorious camps of criminals and terrorists terrorizing Nigerians along Nasarawa and Kogi States recently.

“The fugitive criminal Gana has been on the wanted listed of security agencies for long. The Benue State governor in the year declared him wanted and placed a N10 million bounty on anyone who can lead to the arrest of Gana.

“Despite the ransom (bounty), Gana still remained elusive, forcing the state government to raise it to N50 million bounty for his arrest. Yet, he was elusive, not until he was gunned down by the Special Forces on 8 September, 2020.

“In the midst of this situation, the Nigerian Army deserves to be paid the N50 million ransom, having killed Gana. The assignment has been completed, the Army should be paid.

“It is not the cash that is important, but the need for political authority to set good precedent by giving backing to the military.

“It is a symbolic reward which the Nigerian Army is ready to take from the governor. It is time to walk the talk. We are already pushing for the bounty.”

Gana was declared wanted after he allegedly killed Ortom’s Special Assistant on Special Security Denen Igbana.

The governor had thrice announced different rewards for anyone with information on Gana, ranging from N5 million and N10 million in 2017 and N50 million in 2020

On July 15, Ortom said: “I want to reiterate that the N50m the government promised as reward for anyone with information leading to the arrest of the wanted man, Gana (Terwase Akwaza), still stands.”

But, the governor said he would not be distracted by the Terwase’s killing on his way to surrender for amnesty programme.

Ortom told reporters after the State Security meeting in Government House, Makurdi, that his administration decided to proceed with the amnesty programme, despite the temporary setback occasion by Akwaza’s death.

The governor said the State Security Council will today meet with stakeholders from Sankera to review the situation and the way forward.

He said the Council has resolved to continue with the amnesty programme to cover those who retreated, allaying the fears of the repentant youths who may be intending to be part of the programme.

According to Ortom, 42 youths from Logo have been successfully profiled and allowed to return home, pointing out that a committee, headed by his Security Adviser Col. Paul Hembah (rtd), was constituted to work out rehabilitation plans for the repentant youths.

He said his Special Advisers on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs Jerome Torshimbe, and that of Special Duties, Joseph Odaudu, have also been drafted as members of the committee.

Other members are: chairmen of Katsina-Ala, Logo and Ukum local government areas. The committee has a mandate to identify skills of the repentant youths for necessary intervention.

The governor said security had been beefed up in Sankera to prevent breakdown of law and order.

He acknowledged the peaceful disposition of the people of Sankera and urged them to sustain it as everything was being done to guarantee the security of lives and property.

Gana was killed by Government.

Even Ortom is aware of his murder. There's no way the Army will stop Government convoy. Ortom can't deny he's not aware of the death of Gana. All his reactions is to prevent reprisal attacks from Gana boys.

Fear Government and Stay away from crime.

Foolish pipu.
Go and kill shekau who has been terrorizing Nigeria for ages now. The bounty placed on his head is far better and bigger than that of any terrorist on the security wanted list.
Why were u pipu not able to gun him down ever since, but were able to killed him on the day he was going to Makurdi for the formalization of a state amnesty program, in the company of even his local government chairman, traditional rulers and religious leaders.
You block his convoy, dragged him out of the vehicle took him away and later on displayed pictures of his bullets ridden body on social media.
Why is it taken you decade to achieve same feat on shekau who has been a major security threat to the entire Nation. Or the special forces is handicap when it has to do with shekau, but became Rambos when it is Gana and IPOB

Imagine.

The terms of the bounty are as highlighted below:


“Despite the ransom (bounty), Gana still remained elusive, forcing the state government to raise it to N50 million bounty for his arrest. Yet, he was elusive, not until he was gunned down by the Special Forces on 8 September, 2020.

“In the midst of this situation, the Nigerian Army deserves to be paid the N50 million ransom, having kiled Gana. The assignment has been completed, the Army should be paid.

The terms require that he be delivered ALIVE to the authorities. At least, that is the implication of the word ARREST. Has the military done so, NO!

Whosoever put out this statement need to have their head examined.

for him to take arms again the citizens of the nigeria is enough reason to killed him, if he wanted to surrender, he should have summit himself to the police, the police will take him to the court , the court will determine his fate then the executive will come with pardon.

Very cowardic Army, you arrested a man already granted amnesty by the State Governor whom the constitution bestows the Prerogative of Mercy. At the time of his arrest and cold blooded murder he is assumed to be innocent under the law.
The Army expects to be commended for arresting him when he was picked up while seated in the car between a Catholic Priest and the Local Govt Chairman accompanying him to the Govt house in a convoy comprising of repentant militants and traditional rulers.
The ransom should go to the Tiv traditional rulers and the Catholic Bishop of Katsina-Ala who persuaded him to accept amnesty and embrace peace and whom the Army betrayed. Imagine the trauma the Catholic Bishop will be facing now and how in future criminals, agitators, militants, bandits, unions etc will view amnesty offer from government.

Meanwhile, Shekau has $25m bounty on his head from America, that's where the money is and for 10 years the Army has lost hundreds of men to him and he remains elusive, with this action you think Shekau will even agree to accept amnesty?
This Govt does not disappoint, those that Buhari called 5% warned us but we were overwhelmed by sentiments
