A pilot, Abdulkarim Na’Allah, has been found dead at his Umar Gwandu Road residence in Malali, Kaduna. He was 36.
Family sources said the deceased, who was the first son of Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah, was found dead around 12pm.
“He was alone in the house. The security guard of his neighbour found the gate strangely opened, so he raised the alarm,” said a family source who prefers not to be named.
“There was no gunshot on his body. It was clear he was strangled as he was found tied with a rope.”
The father of the deceased, Bala Ibn Na Allah, is the Senator representing Kebbi South Senatorial District.
Spokesman for the Kaduna State Police Command, Mohammed Jalige, confirmed the incident to journalists.
Mr Jalige, an assistant superintendent of police, said the death was reported to the police at about 3.30pm.
He said the killers took his car, and that investigation had commenced on the matter.
The remains of the deceased had been buried on Sunday evening at Unguwan Sarki cemetery in Kaduna.
