Body of Missing General Alkali Found

The Nigerian Army has located the body of the missing General, Retired Major General Idris Alkali.

Channel Television reported that the remains of the retired officer were discovered in Guchwet in Shen of Jos South LGA of Plateau State.

The leader of the operation search and rescue, Brigadier General Umar Mohammed, says a parade will be held for the retired officer.

It will be recalled that the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai, last month constituted a Joint Task Force to search for Gen. Alkali’s body.

Alkali is the immediate past chief of administration of the Nigerian Army.

The senior military officer had been declared missing since September 3, 2018 after contact was lost during a journey in which he drove himself.
