Peace may soon return to the Benue-Taraba axis following the death of two notorious criminals operating in the two States.
Recall that Terwase Agwaza otherwise known as Gana who tormented residents of some Local Governments in the two States was gunned down by the military while enroute to Makurdi, the Benue State capital to accept a second amnesty offer from the State Government.
His death doo controversial, ushered in an era of peace in the region and barely three months after, another notorious criminal, an ex-convict, Salihu Zakari popularly known as "Kinkon" has been shot dead by unknown gunmen in Tella village, Gassol local government area of Taraba state.
Unlike Gana, Kinkon's criminal exploits did not spread over to Benue, but he was a nightmare to residents of Sabongida and Tella for over ten years. He was allegdly responsible for the kidnapping and death of several residents in Gassol local government.
On Monday night, he reportedly received a call from unknown persons to meet them somewhere around 9 pm. It was while heading there that he was shot from behind around an NKST Church in Tella village.
He was rushed to Tella maternity clinic by some Youths in the village but later passed on.
Residents familiar with his criminal activities say he had served several jail terms in Mutum-biyu and Jalingo prisons and has caused pains to so many families during his terror days.
The death of the two notorious criminals may usher in peace to the region faced with the challenge of ethnic clashes suspected to be fuelled by criminal activities.
