Following the recent publication by Wall Street journal about how Nigerian government buries soldiers killed by Boko Haram at the frontline, a family has written to the Nigerian Army asking for the whereabouts of their relative, Emmanuel Ali.
An Army source revealed that the family sent a short message to them asking them to help locate the soldier who they said they have not heard from for two months.
The message reads:
“Please help us if we can get in touch with our brother. Over 2 months we have not communicate with him.
“He is serving in Maiduguri.
“He is by name PTE Emmanuel Ali”
The message was signed by one Prince Josiah Ishaku.
Wall Street journal recently broke the news narrating how a sprawling secret graveyard in Maiduguri and an official cemetery at the base, the operational command for the northeastern front in Borno State, now hold the bodies of at least 1,000 soldiers killed recently by Islamist terrorists and buried secretly in unmarked graves in the middle of night.
Consequently, there is palpable apprehension among the family of PTE Emmanuel Ali over his safety and well-being.
