Zaki Biam Killings: Police Declare Prime Suspects Wanted [See Full List]


The police on Friday declared a prime suspect in recent wanton killings across Benue State wanted.



The authorities also announced the arrest of 17 suspects accused of participating in the killings and disclosed recovery of arms and ammunition allegedly used by the suspected killers.

A statement signed by police spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, on Friday night said Terwase Akwaza, a.k.a. Ghana, was wanted for several killings including last month’s massacre of residents in Zaki Biam, Benue State.

The police said Mr. Akwaza was declared wanted for allegedly being the “gang leader of a vicious and notorious serial killer syndicate was responsible for the senseless killings of seventeen (17) innocent persons at Zaki Biam and for killing in cold blood of about fifty (50) people in other locations in Benue State.”

The police also identified Mr. Akwaza as the killer of Denen Igbana, Senior Special Assistant on Security to Governor Samuel Ortom.

Mr. Igbana was killed by unidentified gunmen at his residence in Tionsha, Benue State, in the early hours of May 20, 2016, the News Agency of Nigeria reported.

“He is culpable for other capital offences such as kidnapping, armed robbery, culpable homicide, mischief by fire and criminal conspiracy,” the police said.

Mr. Moshood also paraded 17 suspects arrested in connection with the killings at the Force Headquarters in Abuja. They were said to have acted on the orders of Mr. Akwaza to allegedly carry out the heinous acts.


Weapons were also allegedly recovered from the suspects and the police are treating them as exhibits.
