- A justice group has condemned reports on the missing Nigerian Army general
- The group said allegations by the Citizens United for Peace and Security (CUPS) led by Idris Ahmed as totally wrong
- according to PPJF, CUPS and its leadership as “an avowed enemy of the Nigerian Army and the good people of Plateau state
A group has alleged that some individuals are set to cause mischief following the search of the missing Nigerian Army general, Idris Alkali.
The Plateau Peace and Justice Forum (PPJF) described allegations by the Citizens United for Peace and Security (CUPS) led by Idris Ahmed as totally wrong.
PPJF also describing the CUPS and its leadership as “an avowed enemy of the Nigerian Army and the good people of Plateau state", called on indigenes of the state to be wary of those that are instigating them to violence or the Nigerian Army against them.
Speaking on Sunday, September 30, in Abuja, the president of PPJF, Alexander Mamedu, faulted the Facebook post by Ahmed.
Mamedu said the other many contradictions in his Facebook posts have left people wondering about his mental state and character.
He said in the course of this distressing search, the PPJF have noted the efforts of the Nigerian Army and the commitment of the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, who has not relented in the commitment to get to the bottom of the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Alkali.
Mamedu said: “Unfortunately, Nigeria like any other country of the world has its own share of sadists and nihilists who will prey on the sorrows of grieving families to get their daily kicks from tormenting others same way drug addicts crave their fix. It is in this regard that we note the numerous contradictions by one Idris Ahmed of CUPS sowing discord on his Facebook page in his attempt to instigate a crisis between the Nigerian Army and the people of Plateau state."
“Without any intent to prejudice what the ongoing investigations will find, we find it most inhuman, insensitive and irresponsible that Idris Ahmed has constituted himself into a supreme authority to declare Major General Idris Alkali (retired) dead to an extent that he was already expressing his condolence to the distraught family," Mamedu said.
“It is most unfortunate that Idris Ahmed’s vampire disposition did not allow him to see the sheer bizarreness of his actions, which has every appearance of someone craving human flesh. How else can one describe the obsession that made him to claim that he prompted the investigation that led the Nigerian Army to finding the missing car?
“Not only is Idris Ahmed totally wrong, the other many contradictions in his Facebook posts have left us wondering about just how disturbed this character is. He regaled the world with distorted timeline of when General Alkali’s car was found and when his other personal effects were found.
“There is a limit to the positive outcomes we can wish for under the circumstances, but since Idris Ahmed has declared Major General Idris Alkali (retired) dead, we wish to appeal to him to allow the dead to rest in peace. He should also allow the Nigerian Army to do its job without instigating strife and unnecessary apprehensions in the land.
“The Army under Buratai has proven to be a friend of the Plateau people and must not allow the activities of a criminal elements to sow any seed of discord between that institution and our people.
“The full investigation that has been commissioned should be allowed to run its course undistracted. We support the investigation and the Army’s quest to unravel the truth. The Army began its investigation long before Idris Ahmed’s contradictions and peddling of falsehood began so we will not set stock in his antics.

“We call on our brethren in Plateau state, home and abroad, to be wary of those that are instigating them to violence. This is a time to allow the relevant agencies do their work. Even when those behind the General’s disappearance would have been apprehended, we call for restraint to allow the law take its course and not resort to hostilities based on whatever their ethnicity turns out to be," he added.
