His life not better than that of other Nigerians, Sen Bala Ibn Na’Allah breaks silence on son’s death


The senator representing Kebbi South, Bala Ibn Na’Allah, has said the life of his slain son, Abdulkarim, is not better than that of any other Nigerian.

In a statement on Monday in Abuja, Na’Allah said those who killed his son did not carry guns.

Abdulkarim, a pilot, was reportedly killed at his home in Malali GRA in Kaduna State.

The senator said he hoped the death of his son would play a major role in finding a solution to Nigeria’s problems.

“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.

Na’Allah added: “His life is not better than any other Nigerian’s. 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 Abdulkarim in our family. By the numerous calls, messages and visits we have received so far, we have every cause 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.”
