The wife of a recently retired Army Major General, Idris Alkali has cried out for help after her husband went missing few weeks after retirement from service.
The wife of the missing general, Salamatu Alkali said that she lost contact with her husband about one week ago when he embarked on a journey from Abuja to his farm in Bauchi State.
“Before embarking on the journey, I advised him to take the Kano route and ignore Jos because of the dangers inherent in that axis.
“The last time we spoke on that fateful day was when he called to tell me that he had just passed Jos. I protested why he did not take the Kano route, but he assured me everything would be okay,” the distraught wife said in emotion-laden tone.
She however said, the Nigerian Army had assured the family of their commitment towards establishing the whereabouts and the rescue of the missing general.
“They said we should be patient as they are combing the area, but we are losing patience as the days go by. We are really in distress, pain and agony.
“We are calling on all authorities involved in the search and rescue to expedite action and ensure his safe return back to us,” she said.
