Chief of Army Staff Explains Invasion Of Gbise Village In Benue State

The Chief of Army Staff, General Tukur Burutai has defended the ongoing military action in Gbise Community in Katsina-Ala Local Government of Benue State.

General Burutai, who was represented by the Army Chief of Policy and Planning, Lincoln Ogunewe, told our correspondent in Makurdi, that the operation is aimed at fishing out a beneficiary of the Benue State Amnesty Programme, Mr Terwase Agwaza also known as Ghana, and to secure internal security in the country.

To corroborate this view, the Benue State government said the operation was sanctioned by the State Security Council following security report linking Mr Agwaza to the murder of the late security aide to Governor Samuel Ortom.
