We earlier reported that the Nigerian Army has found the body of missing General Alkali, which was reportedly found in a well and has since been evacuated.
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 has been done to confirm if the body parts found were actually that of Mr Alkali, the army said its investigations confirmed it so.
The body parts found were being put in a body bag as at the time of this report filed by Premium Times.
A brigadier general, Umar Ibrahim, the Garrison Commander, 3 division, spoke to 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 announced it located a shallow grave where the late general was initially buried before the body was exhumed and taken someplace else.
Brig. Gen. Umar Mohammed, Garrison Commander 3 Division Nigeria Army, said that they were led to the location by one of those earlier arrested in connection with the crime.
He said that the operation was jointly carried out by men of the Nigeria Police and the Fire Service.
Umar said that with the recovery of the body, they were going to ensure that those declared wanted in connection with the crime were brought to book.
“The COAS gave us three terms of reference, to get the missing senior officer dead or alive, to recover his car and to ensure that those who committed the crime were punished.
“We have today fulfilled the second condition, we will not rest until we meet the third.
“We want to assure those that are on the run to know that we are on their trail and we must get them,” he vowed.
A military parade will take place at the site of the well after all the body parts have been removed, Mr Ibrahim said.
