The Nigeria Army has arrested Mr Kumour Fachii, alias Commandant, the successor of Terwase Akwaza, alias ‘Gana’, the dreaded militia gang leader in Benue State who was killed last month in an operation.
The Commander of the Four Special Forces Command of the Nigerian Army in Doma Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, Brigadier General Maude Ali Gadzama, confirmed this to newsmen on Wednesday revealed that Fachii was arrested alongside 75 others at his hide out.
According to Gen Gadzama, Fachii was arrested in his girlfriend’s house in Agbi village of Katsina-Ala local government area of Benue State.
He said, items recovered from the suspect include arms and ammunition, three locally-made rocket launchers, military uniforms, charms among others.
“I called you guys here because some 36 days back when the dreaded Gana was paraded before you people here, I mentioned that some of his kingpins have been arrested while some of them are on the run and we are in pursuit of them.
