No Hiding Place for Notorious Gang Leader in Benue ~ Ortom

Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom, has called on the notorious gang leader, Mr Terwase Akwaza, to surrender himself to the police because there is no hiding place for him.

Ortom, who spoke on the occasion of the launch of an appeal fund for the completion of NKST Church, Yina, in Makurdi, yesterday, said all the security agencies are looking for Terwase Akwaza, alias ‘Ghana’.

In a statement signed by the Special Assistant to the governor on Media, Godwin Akor, said though Akwaza and members of his gang had surrendered their weapons in line with the amnesty programme of his administration, his late senior special assistant on Special Duties, Mr Denen Igbana, mentioned ‘Ghana’ when he was assassinated.

The governor said since his aide was murdered, the police have been inviting the gang leader to no avail and noted that across the country, he, Terwase Akwaza, has no hiding place.

Ortom explained that time for the carrot approach of the amnesty programme has elapsed and added that the stick approach was being applied.

Earlier, the Pastor in-charge of NKST, Yina, Rev (Dr) Kurugh Antiev, commended the contributions made by Senator George Akume and that of Governor Samuel Ortom when he was a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
