The eldest son of a Nigerian Senator, Captain Abdulkarim Bala Na Allah, has been found dead in his bedroom at Malali in northern Kaduna state.
Reports suggest that the 36-year-old pilot, who married recently, was tied and strangled while the assailants escaped with his vehicle and personal belongings.
The Special Adviser to Senator Na Allah, Garba Mohammed, while confirming the tragic incident, said the assailants had gained entrance to the house through the roof behind the house and entered his section through the ceiling.
He said a neighbour’s security guard had noticed the gate of the deceased home opened and raised the alarm which led to the discovery of the remains of the pilot.
Local media reports that Senator Na Allah, who is presently not in the country, has three sons who are all pilots.
The Kaduna State Police Command is yet to react to the murder.
Bala Na’Allah represents Kebbi South at the Senate.
