BENUE State governor, Samuel Ortom has assured that Terwase Agwadza, the notorious criminal popularly known as Gana will soon be arrested.
Ortom who fielded questions from newsmen in Government House, Makurdi yesterday said, the security operatives were closing in on Gana, but are taking their time because of civilian casualties.
“There is nothing special about it, we’re going to get Gana soon, it’s just that we don’t want casualties involved in the process of tracking him down,” Ortom said.
On whether a price should be put on Gana or his bank account should be freezed, the governor said it was left for the Security Council to decide, stressing that several of his followers who have been arrested are already giving useful information.
“By the time we meet, we’ll know what to do. If there’s need to freeze his account, it shouldn’t be my decision but that of the state security council,” Ortom further stated.
The governor who also said he was not distracted by the Gana saga said, he would not hand over the state to criminals, who he said are already in trouble.
He disabused the mind of those who are portraying the ‘tracking’ of Gana as an abuse of human rights, stressing, “when the army went to Gbishe, no life was lost, they were able to keep to their rules of engagement.”
