The Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai has said security gaps and lack of decisive action by state authorities and security agencies enabled the killing of late Major General Idris Alkali in Plateau State.
Buratai spoke at the Headquarters of the Nigerian Army in Abuja, when Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong paid him a condolence visit over the death of the death of the General.
Buratai added that, it has been at a very heavy cost, not only the case of Major General Alkali but others have gone the same way, without being reported or even those that were reported were never conclusively investigated and those involved properly prosecuted.
He noted that discoveries from the Dura-Du pond showed that one of the vehicles recovered was dumped in 2013. He said investigation into the case was inconclusive, no action was taken, and the case was closed.
Earlier, Governor Lalong condoled with Buratai over the death of Alkali and expressed gratitude for the arrest of the culprits
