Gana accepted Christ before his killing – Deputy


Aondehmba, alias Major, the Second-in-Command to late Terwase Akwaza, aka Gana, slain head of a terror gang, who was killed on his way to Makurdi, the Benue capital, to buy in into the State government amnesty programme, has shared insight into the last moment of his principal.

Aondehmba’s revelation was contained in an interview he granted The Nation wherein he added that the gang terrorizing Benue and parts of Taraba State boasted of about two hundred members, saying the deceased had premonition of his killing.

“I can tell you that Gana accepted Christ before his death. He had planned to be baptized by the Bishop after the amnesty. He had even discussed wedding one of his wives in the church. He was actually tired of what he was doing.

“I was among the five gang members that disappeared in the convoy when the army stopped us in Gboko. Our vehicle was behind the official car of the local government chairman that was conveying Gana to Makurdi.

“Gana could not disappear because he had already handed over his power to the second commander before embarking on that ill-fated journey to Makurdi,” the paper quoted him as saying.
