Unknown gunmen a while ago shot to death Abdulkarim Bala Na Allah, a Captain in the Nigerian Army at his Malali residence, Kaduna.
Captain Bala Na’ Allah, was the first son of Senator Bala Na’Allah, an influential senator from Kebbi state.
An aide to Senator Na’Allah, Malam Garba Mohammed, confirmed the killing of the trained pilot.
He said that the late 36-year-old Abdulkarim, was alone in his house on Saturday night, as his wife had travelled, only for his corpse to be discovered by neighbours on Sunday.
The incident is the latest in a series of attacks and killings in the northwestern state.
On Saturday, two persons were killed in an attack by bandits in Makoro Iri village, Kajuru Local Government Area of the state.
The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, who disclosed this via a statement on Saturday, said that the bandits invaded the remote village and shot dead the duo identified as Gideon Mumini and Barnabas Ezra.
