The remains of Muhammed Alkali, the retired army general, who was declared missing on September 3, have been found in an abandoned well in Plateau state.
A source disclosed this to TheCable on Wednesday afternoon, saying the military authorities would soon issue a statement on it.
On Friday, B. A. Akinruluyo, general officer commanding, 3 division, Rukuba barracks, had said soldiers located a grave where Alkali was initially buried.
Akinruluyo said some of the suspects arrested in connection with the incident confessed that the body of the deceased was buried in a place known as “No Man’s Land” Dura-Du community in Plateau.
He said those behind the dastardly act later exhumed the corpse and took it to an unknown place.
