Bala Na’Allah, senator representing Kebbi south, has said the life of his son who was murdered on Sunday is not better than that of any other Nigerian.
In a statement on Monday, Na’Allah said those who attacked his son were not armed with guns.
Abdulkareem Na’Allah (pictured), the senator’s son who was a pilot was reportedly murdered at his residence in Malali GRA in Kaduna state.
The senator said he hopes the death of his son will play a major role in finding a solution to the problems of Nigeria.
“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,” he said.
“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 appreciated the police and Kaduna state government for their intervention, praying that Allah grants his son eternal rest.
