Kaduna state government has said that the pilot son of Senator Ibn Na’Allah was murdered but not killed by bandits.
This is coming as the Commissioner of Police, Kaduna State Command, Mr Mudasiru Abdullahi, has ordered a full scale investigation into the assassination of Abdulkarim Ibn Na-Allah.
Abdulkarim, 36, the eldest son of Kebbi Senator Bala Ibn Na-Allah, who was an aircraft captain was murdered in his Kaduna residence on Sunday, August 29.
Abdullahi gave the order late Sunday in Kaduna in a statement issued by the command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige.
He said- “I have directed that a full scale investigation be carried out with a view to unraveling the identities of the culprits and bringing them to book.
“The report has it that the assassins forcefully gained access into the residence of the pilot at Umar Gwandu Road, Malali, Kaduna during the night hours, choked him to death in cold blood and made away with his Lexus SUV to an unknown destination,“ the CP said in the statement.
The police command called on the public to assist with useful information that might assist in its investigation into the murder.
But the Kaduna State Government has described Abdulkarim Na Allah’s death as “appearing to be a case of culpable homicide”.
Samuel Aruwan, Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, stated this in a statement on Sunday in Kaduna, saying that the state government has been informed by security agencies that the remains of aircraft Capt. Ibn Na’Allah were found in his Kaduna home.
“In what appears to be a case of culpable homicide, the deceased was found in a bedroom in his residence in Malali, Kaduna North LGA, apparently after having been strangled with a rope.
“A vehicle was stolen from his parking lot by the assailants,’’ he statement said.
The remains of the pilot were buried on Sunday evening at Unguwan Sarki Cemetery, Kaduna.
Aruwan said that in another incident, bandits killed one person at Janwuriya, Kajuru Local Government Area of the state.
He said Governor Nasir El-Rufai expressed deep sadness at the incidents as he prayed for the repose of the souls of the victims
