A notorious criminal kingpin in Benue, Terugwa Igbagwa, a.k.a Orjandu has been killed by Nigeria’s military.

Defence Headquarters spokesman Major General John Enenche, announced this on Friday.

According to Enenche, Igbagwa died during a commando operation on the highway linking Zaki Biam and Katsina-Ala in Benue.

The operation was conducted by the combined troops of Operation Whirl Stroke Tracking Team and Special Forces of Sector 2 deployed in Zaki Biam.

Orjondu is the second most wanted criminal kingpin next to Gana in Benue State, Enenche said.

The military spokesman noted that Igbagwa was responsible for kidnapping, armed robbery, assassination, and gun-running among other criminal activities around Katsina-Ala, Ukum, and Logo Local Government Areas (LGAs) for many years.

Items recovered from the suspect include one AK 47 rifle, one locally made rifle, one AK 47 magazine with 30 rounds of 7.62mm special, and some charms.

“The Military High Command congratulates Operation Whirl Stroke for their exploits in recent times,” Enenche said.
