Gunmen have killed the eldest son of Senator Bala Ibn Na Allah representing Kebbi South Senatorial District.
Thirty-six year old Captain Abdulkarim Na’Allah, a pilot, was found dead in his bedroom in the Malali area of Kaduna metropolis.
It was learnt that Captain Na’Allah, who got married recently, was tied and strangled in his residence while the killers escaped with his vehicle and other personal belongings.
Special Adviser to Senator Na’Allah, Garba Mohammed, who confirmed the incident, said that the assailants entered the house through the roof and accessed his section of the building through the ceiling.
According to Garba, a neighbour’s security guard noticed that the pilot’s gate was open and raised the alarm, which led to the discovery of the younger Na’Allah’s remains.
A source said that Senator Na Allah, whose three sons are pilots, was not in the country.
The police could not be reached for confirmation.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai confirmed the killing of the pilot.
