The vehicle belonging to missing Army General, Maj Gen. Idria Nur Alkali (rtd), has been found in a pond in Lafendeg Du area of Plateau State by the Joint Task Force constituted by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen TY Buratai.
This breakthrough in investigation, is coming three weeks after a joint task force comprising of officers and soldiers from 3 Division Quick Response Team, Operation Safe Haven, Nigeria Police Force, Vehicle Inspection Office, Fire Service, as well as local divers, commenced search for the missing Army General.
However according to a report from the Nigerian army, several logistics issues including the alleged sabotage from the host communities, have hampered the success of the search for the Army General who went missing after leaving his house in Abuja on Monday 3/09/2018 for Bauchi where he has a farm.
It was gathered that due to the terrain in the general areas of Paddock in Lafendeg Du Plateau State, the task force consulted a Chinese construction company working in that area who promised to assist in drilling out water from the pond where it was suspected that the vehicle belonging to the senior officer was pushed into.
The Task Force also recovered an 18-Seater Hummer Bus door in its search, and it was further alleged that there could be other vehicles in the same pond hence the continued protest by the community.
