Gen Idris Alkali decomposed body found.
Major General Muhammad Inuwa Idris (born in 1960) was the 26th Commandant of the Nigerian Defence Academy. He was appointed Commandant on December 26, 2013 and succeeded as Commandant by Major General M.T.
The body of a retired Nigerian army general, who mysteriously disappeared on 3 September, has been found in a well.
Gen Idris Alkali went missing while travelling alone from the capital, Abuja, to his hometown in Bauchi state.
His car was found a month ago in an abandoned mining pit on the outskirts of the central city of Jos.
Last week the army discovered a shallow grave where the body of the general had been buried before being moved.
A military spokesperson said that on Wednesday, one of the people who moved the body led them to an abandoned well south of Jos, where they were able to recover the general’s remains.
Gen Alkali was the Nigerian army’s former chief of administration.
He had just retired after 35 years of service when he disappeared.
In previous statements, the army said it believed the general was killed by local youth, protesting a recent attack by gunmen in their community.
