Car Belonging to Missing General Found in Jos Pond

The car belonging to Major General I.M. Alkali (rtd) who had been declared missing has been found.

This was disclosed by the Nigerian Army on Saturday following the efforts of a Joint Task Force constituted by COAS Lt Gen TY Buratai comprising officers & soldiers from 3 Division Quick Response Team, Operation Safe Haven, Nigeria Police Force, firefighters as well as local divers.

Earlier on Thursday, the Nigerian Army began evacuation of water from the pond as part of efforts in the search for the soldier.

They were resisted at first by local women dressed in black, saying the pond was sacred and of great cultural importance to them.

But the army insisted on the search which, according to them, was on good intelligence that the general was waylaid around the area and disposed of in the pond.

The sighting of the car was revealed via a tweet by the Nigerian Army that read: “Joint Task Force constituted by COAS Lt Gen TY Buratai comprising officers & soldiers from 3 Div Quick Response Team, Op Safe Haven, @PoliceNG #VIO @Fedfireng, as well as Local Divers have found the vehicle belonging to Maj Gen Alkali RTD at a pond in Lafendeg Du Plateau State.”

The army added that it would proceed immediately to bring the perpetrators of the dastardly act to justice.
