Shehu Sani, a Ex-federal lawmaker, has reacted to the killing of Terwase Akwase, the most wanted criminal in Benue. State.
Shehu Sani said it was wrong to have killed the criminal even after he had surrendered to the army.
Recall that the Nigerian Army on Thursday confirmed the killing of Akwaza, also known as Gana, in Benue State.
Gana was killed during a gun battle with military men along Gbese-Gboko-Makurdi road, on Tuesday.
Confirming the incident, the Commander, 4 Special Forces Command, Doma, Nasarawa State, Maj. -Gen. Moundhey Ali, said the military men gunned Gana down at a roadblock mounted by the soldiers.
Speaking with reporters, Ali said that 40 armed members of Gana’s gang were also captured during the operation.
He disclosed that several rifles, pump action guns, ammunition, charms and explosives among other items were recovered from the gang.
He said Gana’s corpse has been deposited in an undisclosed mortuary.
This was after Gana had earlier surrendered to the Benue State government following an amnesty programme extended to criminals.
But reacting to the development, Sani, a prominent member of the 9th Assembly and Ex-member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, said, “To ‘kill’ a person who ‘surrendered’ would discourage others from surrendering.”
