The much dreaded militant and kidnapper, Don Waney, has finally met his end after security agents gunned him and his team down.
Don Waney, who was notorious for terrorising Rivers state, was shot dead by men of the Nigerian Army and DSS while trying to escape.
However, only few know that Waney was one of the militant leaders who embraced the government amnesty programme.
In 2016, Don Waney embraced the amnesty programme of Gov. Wike. He laid down his arms & military uniforms. Apparently, he only surrendered a few weapons. He still terrorrised Omuku till his death. He was also the leader of the notorious Islanders Cult responsible for beheadings. pic.twitter.com/sYc8dTPZP6

Waney, alongside his men, embraced the amnesty programme of the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike.
In an event of sorts that attracted Chiefs, politicians and political leaders, Waney declared an end to his involvement in militancy and submitted all arms and ammunition in his possession.
In fact, the arms submitted by Waney was recorded to be the largest gathered from the amnesty prog.
Waney however went back to terrorizing the state and was reported to be the mastermind behind the new year day killings that took place in Rivers state.
