Remember the case of the missing Nigerien army general? Reports claim his remains have been found in questionable circumstances.

After several weeks of conjectures, the Nigerian Army, on Wednesday, claimed that it had found the corpse of its former Chief of Administration, Maj. Gen. Mohammed Idris Alkali (retd.), who was said to have disappeared in controversial circumstances.

The corpse was said to have been found by the army’s search and rescue operation in an abandoned well in a bush at Guchwet village, Shen District, Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State.

The remains of the officer, which were kept inside a body-bag, was shown to journalists under strict directives that they should not take any photographs.

A military parade was carried out at the well site in honour of the deceased and taken inside the Army ambulance.

Alkali, who was said to have disappeared under questionable circumstances, reportedly retired a few weeks before he was declared missing on Monday, September 3, 2018, a day after gunmen swooped on Dura-Du and killed about 13 persons.

About three cars were said to have been recovered from a mining pond in Dura –Du District during a cordon and search operation conducted by a team of soldiers led by the Garrison Commander of 3 Armoured Division, Rukuba Barracks in Jos, Brig. Gen. Umar Mohammed.

How body of missing Nigerian army general was ‘found’

The Nigerian Army on Wednesday explained how it found the body of a missing general, Idris Alkali, after weeks of intense investigations.

Mr Alkali, who recently retired as a major general, was declared missing several weeks ago while travelling from Abuja to Bauchi.

His body parts were found in an abandoned well in Guchwet village of Shen district, Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State.

Although no medical test had been done to confirm if the body parts found were actually that of Mr Alkali, the army said ”its investigations confirmed it”.

A brigadier general, Umar Ibrahim, the Garrison Commander, 3 division, spoke with journalists at the scene. He said some of the suspects who participated in the killing of the general brought the army to the well.


Last week, the army had announced it located a shallow grave where the late general was initially buried before the body was exhumed and taken someplace else.

Gory Sight

On Wednesday, a military “body bag” containing the parts of the missing general was unzipped for reporters to have a look. But no shots were allowed to be taken to preserve the victim’s dignity.

At the scene, a water pump generator was used to drain the water from the well to allow access to the body parts.


The reporter observed that there was a distance of almost 10 kilometers from where his corpse was first buried to the “no man’s land” where it was found Wednesday morning.

Mr Ibrahim narrated how the victim’s body was found.

“You are all aware that Major General Idris Alkali was declared missing on September 3. The Nigerian Army gave us three tasks. One, to find General Alkali dead or alive; two, to find his car which is a Toyota Corolla; and three, if anything happened to him, to find who are responsible for it .


“As you are all aware, on the September 29, 2018, we were able to discover his vehicle and we saw his personal effects which confirmed that it was him. In the same vein, last week, I called you and showed you where he was buried in a shallow grave.

“We have declared some people wanted and based on that, some of them, reported to the police. Some of them, who took part in his relocation took us where he (body) was relocated.

“He was actually relocated to an abandoned well, which is behind me here. We came here this morning, we drained the water and we were able to salvage the body of General Alkali.


“This is to tell you that now the two aspects of the assignment are completed. The remaining aspect is for all those who took part in this henious act – nobody, no matter how connected the person is must not go unpunished. For those who have not submitted themselves to the police, we are on their trail. We will find them sooner or later,” the officer said.

While the body parts were being removed, soldiers on site gave a short military parade as a mark of last respect for the deceased officer.

The body was then taken into an ambulance by four generals.


Tortuous Route

PREMIUM TIMES had reported how Mr Alkali, who recently retired as a chief of administration (army), was declared missing on September 3, while travelling from Abuja to Bauchi.

PREMIUM TIMES also reported how the car of the missing general was later found in a pool after some women in the Dara Du tried to prevent soldiers from draining the pool.

A blood-stained T-shirt and a pair of shoes belonging to the general were found in the car.

Since the discovery of the car, there had been fears the military could attack the community in retaliation. The military had dismissed such fears.


A day after the car was found, the army cordoned off the community and arrested 30 suspects.

Apart from the discovery of the missing car, two other vehicles were also recovered from the pond.

Following the arrest of the 30 suspects, whom the soldiers later handed over to the police after interogation, residents of the community fled for fear of further military action. An unperurbed army had pledged to conduct the search with respect for human rights.

But I thought in the Army a Gen must always go with his bodyguards, how comes he travelled alone?
