The eldest son of a serving lawmaker, Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah, was found dead in his bedroom Sunday at Malali GRA, Kaduna North local government area of Kaduna state.
The deceased son, Captain AbdulKareem Bala Na’Allah, was a trained pilot.
While there were speculations that he may have been victim of bandits or armed robbers, Akelicious gathered that the 36-year-old son of the lawmaker, who recently got married, was tied up and strangled to death, while his assailants made away with his vehicle and some personal belongings.
Special Adviser to Senator Na’Allah, Malam Garba Muhammad, who confirmed AbdulKareem’s death, said the assailants gained entrance to his house through the roof of a building behind his house, and entered through the ceiling.
He said a neighbour’s security guard, who noticed that the gate of the deceased’s home was left ajar, raised the alarm which led to the discovery of the remains of the pilot.
Senator Na’Allah, who represents Kebbi South in the Senate, was former Senate Majority Leader and All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain.
He has three sons all of whom are pilots.
Akelicious gathered that the funeral prayers of the deceased held at Yahaya Road Mosque, while he was laid to rest at Ungwan Sarki cemetery off Isa Kaita road according to Islamic rites.
