Government Announces N50m Bounty For Information On Notorious Criminal, Gana

Governor Samuel Ortom has called on people of Benue State to always provide timely and useful information to security agents to help in combating kidnapping, cultism and other crimes.
Ortom made the call at the Benue Peoples House Makurdi while briefing the press after the State Security Council meeting he presided over.

He commended security operatives in the state for their proactive and gallant efforts in ensuring peace and vowed that criminal elements operating in the state must be decimated.

Governor Ortom commended some of the newly sworn-in Council Chairmen for the measures taken in tackling insecurity in their domains.

He urged them to sustain the tempo, adding that intelligence gathering remains key to the war against criminals.

He also said that the N50 million reward the State Government promised to give anyone with information leading to the arrest of wanted man Terwase Akwaza, aka Gana, still stands.

According to the Governor, the council also took far-reaching decisions to end the pockets of land disputes involving some communities which have agreed to give peace a chance.

He said the security of lives and property would continue to be a priority to his administration, pointing out that without peace, there would be no meaningful development in the state.
