Mr Ugbe Lorlumun, the Chief Priest of late Benue militia leader, Terwaze Akwaza a.k.a. Gana, has told of how the killed notorious robbery kingpin, acquired alleged mystical power.
Recall that Gana, a notorious terrorist was killed by soldiers on his way to Makurdi, the Benue capital to sign up for the state government’s amnesty programme alongside forty members of his gang.
He was a lord unto himself and got way with many crimes.
Lorlumum, who is in police custody, narrated that the late Gana had the power to disappear into the thin air while in trouble, a magic the chief priest said the slain gang leader got by burying his daughter alive in an interview with newsmen.
The interview excerpt:
“We used to kidnap or assassinate people, kill them and use their human parts to prepare mystical powers, though part of his powers was also derived from his small daughter he buried alive.
“With my charms, which allow one to disappear at will, he made life unbearable for the people and those who plied the federal highway between Katsina Ala-Takum and Katsina Ala Zaki-Biam – Wukari in Taraba State.
“When he was declared wanted, I prepared a powerful charm for him and nobody was able to arrest him. He used to move freely in his base in Katsina Ala , Ukum and Logo, and most times, he would be in Gboko but those that were looking for him will not see him.”
