A preliminary report by the Coalition of Human Rights Groups in Nigeria has revealed that Terwase Akwaza (Gana) was killed during a shoot-out with security operatives on Tuesday, 8th September 2020, along Makurdi-Gboko Road in Benue State.

Recall that the deceased terrorist has been declared wanted by security operatives for his atrocities in the state..

He turned in himself to embrace the amnesty by the Benue State but was killed on his way to Makurdi to meet with Governor Samuel Ortom.

The governor had claimed that Gana was seized and gunned down by men of the operation Ayem Akpatuma III.

However, contrary to Ortom’s claim of extra judicial, latest report by the coalition have shown that Gana met his waterloo during a gun duel with military personnel.

Edward Omaga Esq, the Special Rapporteur in a statement said after a rigorous investigation, it was established that there was a gun battle between some loyalists to Gana and military personnel, which led to his death.
The report therefore, rubbished the claim by Ortom that Gana was killed extra judiciously
