Meanwhile, the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) District Church Council Fellowship in Plateau State, has cautioned the Military Taskforce to careful while tracing the whereabouts of Alkali.
Its Chairman, Rev. David Laje, said “The Church is sounding the caution against the plans by the military to go to any length at tracing or otherwise the whereabouts of its retired top military officer who has not been seen or heard of since the last couple of days.
“Any act that could bring back the memory of the military action in Zaki Baim, Benue State, some years ago should be avoided at all cost.”
