The Senate has urged the Federal Government to set up an investigative committee to probe the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of retired Major General M Alkali.
The red chamber also urged the military to intensify efforts to rescue all missing Nigerians, especially in the insurgents ravaged Northeast.
The decision is the sequel to a motion moved by Sen. Mohammed Hassan during Wednesday plenary.
Moving the motion, Hassan expressed serious concerns about the disappearance of Major General M Alkali, a retired Army General and the immediate past Director of Administration of Nigerian Army on Monday, 4th September, 2018, barely two months after his retirement
The Senator also gave a brief account of the events that led to the disappearance of the General.
He said, “On Monday, 4th September 2018, his wife Salamatu Alkali alerted the Army authorities that her husband who had departed Abuja the previous day in the morning for Bauchi had not reached his destination.
“After informing her the previous day on Monday, 3rd September 2018 at about noon that he arrived Jos safely and would be passing through DU Road to Bauchi”.
“Note with sympathy that was the last communication she had with her husband until this moment as his whereabouts is presently unknown”.
The Senator from Yobe also accused the communities around the pond where the whereabouts of the General was narrow down to, of not collaborating with the military.
Sen Hassan also commended the Military for the thoroughness in its investigation.
The Senate therefore resolved that the committee should examine and determine the remote and immediate circumstances surrounding the dumping of cars in the ponds in Jos.
It also resolved to identify and interrogate possible suspects in this dastardly act and ensure that the perpetrators face the full wrath of the law to serve as deterrence to other criminally minded persons in the strongest possible terms.
