Katsina-Ala local government is under lock down as men of the Nigerian Army have invaded Gbishe, a suburb of the local government in Benue State.
According to eye witnesses, the soldiers arrived the community at about 5am this morning in about 16 trucks harassing villagers and burning down buildings including the school and home of former warlord and beneficiary of Benue Amnesty programme, Mr Terwase Akwaza also known as Ghana.
Although their mission is uncertain, residents say the soldiers are on the trail of the former warlord who has being on the wanted list of the police over the murder of Governor Samuel Ortom’s aide on Security who was assassinated two months ago – allegations he has denied.
Consequently, the routes to Gbishe from Katsina-Ala town through Tor Donga and Takum have been blockaded with two armoured cars stationed at Tor Donga to wall off traffic to the area.
It was also reliably gathered as at press time that the military had requested for air support for the operation.
