The Kaduna State Government has said the killing of Senator Bala ibn Na’Allah’s son, Abdulkarim Na’Allah, appears to be a case of culpable homicide since he was strangled with a rope.

“It appears that the deceased was culpable homicide. He was found in a bedroom of his house in Malali, Kaduna North LGA, apparently strangled with a rope.
“The assailants stole a vehicle from his parking lot,” Aruwan said.
The 36-year-old pilot, who had recently married, had been tied and strangled while the assailants escaped with his vehicle and personal belongings.
Assailants gained entry to the house through the roof behind the house and entered the senator’s section through the ceiling, Garba Mohammed, the special adviser to Senator Na Allah, told reporters earlier.

Senator Na Allah, who is not in the country at the moment, has three sons who are all pilots.
