THE lawmaker representing Kebbi South Senatorial district, Senator Bala Na’Allah, says his late son, Captain, Abdulkarim was not better then an ordinary Nigeria.
The son was assassinated at his residence in Malali home in Kaduna State over the weekend.
Speaking on the incident, he said the life of his eldest son is not better than that of any other Nigerian.
The lawmaker who was not in the country when the incident occurred said his son’s attackers were not armed with guns.
He said, “They simply gained access to his house through the roof and strangulated him. As a family, we will continue to love him even in death because he was such a wonderful person in his life.”
“His life is not better than any other Nigerian. As a family, we leave everything in the hands of Almighty Allah to whom we have since surrendered in pursuit of the strength to bear the loss of Abdulkareem in our family and by the numerous calls, messages and visits we have received so far, we have every course to thank Almighty Allah for his love and mercy to the family.”
“We assure the public that though we feel greatly diminished in the manner he was killed, we shall remain steadfast in our unshakable belief in the will of Allah. We shall persevere and overcome this tragic loss of one of the finest Ambassadors of our family who has done us proud in his life. We express the hope that his death will play a major role in finding solutions to the problem facing our great Nation.
He commended the Kaduna state police command and the state government for their intervention.
