The force commander, Operation Whirl Stroke, Major General Adeyemi Yekini, on Monday said that there was the possibility that troops had killed the most wanted terrorist in Benue state, Terwase Akwaza aka ‘Gana’.
The force commander, who briefed Journalists on the activities of the Operation Whirl Stroke at Tactical Air Command said that troops carried out raid operation at Tse Akwaza in Katsina Ala Local Government Area of Benue State last Saturday.
“The raid operation which took place at Tse Akwaza camp belonging to Gana in Kastina-Ala commenced at 0500hours on the 18th August 2018 through JatoAka-Kashimbila-Tyotsar axis but was suspended due to bad terrain and damaged bridge at Tyotsar which troops could not cross due to flooding.
“It was not clear if Gana was killed during the assault, but trail of blood seen in the building suspected to be where he slept suggests he might have been hit.
“A motorcycle usually used by Gana was also badly damaged during the air strike, many sacks of a substance suspected to be Indian hemp were recovered and burnt,” General Yekini said.
