The Joint Military Operation of the Nigerian Army in Plateau State has retrieved another missing bus in a mining pond where the vehicle of the missing retired Army General, Idris Alkali, was found on Saturday night.
The Army authority under the supervision of Major General Augustine Chris Agundu and Major General Benson Akinroluyo, who spoke to newsmen said the bus was reported missing on June 24, 2018.
The Generals said, “When we started evacuating water from the pond in the course of searching for the missing General, we discovered the door of the bus with a sticker on the glass with an inscription ‘I do not flash’,
based on that we kept the door in our store and when the story was reported on the media, someone came from Bauchi State two days later and reported at Bukuru Police station in Jos and a file was pulled out of a person who was missing with his bus.
“However, when the Police came to us, it so happened that the picture of the driver which he took posing besides his bus, coincides with the sticker on the door of the bus.
“The driver and his bus was missing on the 24th of June and we found the door in the pond on the 24th of September after which we intensified effort on the search and today we have found the complete body of the bus”.
The Generals said efforts in evacuating water from the pond will continue until everything beneath the water is unraveled.
Our correspondent reports that the body of the driver is yet unknown while the Army has said it will stop at nothing until the bodies of both the missing General and the bus driver are found.
“The community should not panic, all we want from them is their cooperation. They should tell us where they kept their bodies”, the Generals added.
