The Nigerian Army has discovered a shallow grave in its search for the immediate past Chief of Administration (Army), retired Major General Idris Alkali.

General Officer Commanding 3 Division, Major General Benson Akinroluyo, disclosed this at a press briefing on Friday in Plateau State.

According to him, Major General Alkali was killed and buried in a shallow grave, in an area popularly known as “No man’s land” in Lafande community, on the outskirt of Jos metropolis.

“You would recall that on September 2, 2018, at about 8:00 pm, unknown gunmen attacked a shopping complex located a Lafande community on the outskirt of Jos metropolis in Dura-Du District of Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State.

“As a result of the attack, 11 people were killed while others sustained various degrees of injuries. The attack triggered protest by the people of the area on the morning of September 3, 2018,” Major General Akinroluyo told reporters.

Meanwhile, the Plateau State Police Command has said that Da Yakubu Rap, one of the persons declared wanted for their alleged involvement in the killing of the Major General IM Alkali, (retired) has surrendered himself to the command.

The army said Major General Alkali was killed and buried in a shallow grave, in an area popularly known as “No man’s land” in Lafande community, on the outskirt of Jos metropolis.

But the Police in a terse statement  by Matthias Tyopev Terna, the Plateau commands’ spokesman, said that one of the persons has turned himself in to the police.

The police said the decision to publish the names over the mysterious disappearance of General Alkali has started yielding results.

The Command said, “One of the persons declared wanted, Da Yakubu Rap the District Head reported to the Plateau State Police Command headquarters Jos this morning and he is undergoing interrogation..”
