The most wanted suspect in Benue State, Terwase Akwaza, popularly known as Gana before he was killed by the military had revealed some security details about the plan of herdsmen to take over four States in Nigeria.
He was, however, killed by operation AYEM APKATUMA III of the Nigerian military.
Gana was killed after he 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.
The death of the Militant has been condemned by many politicians with the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, calling for investigation into the action of the military.
Other Nigerians have also taken to social media platforms to react to the development.
Here are some reactions gathered by NaijaNews on Micro-blogging platform, Twitter:

He should have been wise enough to know he will be killed eventually and expose every person involved with receipt. I hope the next person to tell us this kinda story gives us accurate info, and if he was killed, posterity will judge his killers and our nation will be grateful.

This guy would have mentioned names and reveal a lot, but our gallant soldiers brought him down.

It’s pretty obvious that the army were desperate to stifle whatever information this guy had, hence they seized and executed him immediately before he could reveal that info.
