Troops of Operation Whirl Stroke (OPWS) have killed the wife of most wanted militia leader in Benue State, Terwase Akwaza, popularly known as ‘Ghana’ in Sai community of Kastina-Ala Local Government Area.
Apex News gathered that the killing followed four simultaneous raids against the gang believed to be terrorising some parts of the state.
The Force Commander of OPWS, Major-General, Adeyemi Yekini, made this known Saturday at a news conference in Makurdi.
He said his troops at several operations conducted had missed the gang leader, Ghana by the whisker.
Yekini also noted that the troops successfully fought through without any casualty on their side adding  that one of the wives of the wanted man, Queen was believed to have been killed during the two hours cross fire the militias engaged with troops.
He expressed optimism that with the newly established sub-sector of the operation in Zaki-Biam, following Thursday’s attack by suspected Ghana ‘boys’ on the border town would bring troops closer to arresting the wanted militia kingpin on whose head joint security operatives in the state had placed a bounty of N20 million.
