Governor of Niger state, Abubakar Sani Bello, has described the killing of Capt. Abdulkarim Bala Na’Allah, eldest son of Senator Bala Na’Allah by gunmen as cruel and tragic.
A statement issued by his chief press secretary Mary Noel Berje, Governor Bello said the fight against criminal elements is now a task for all and sundry.
He stressed that the government or security agencies alone cannot deal with the bad situation.
“My heart is with the family of my friend and Brother Senator Na’Allah. Abdulkarim was like a son to me. Killing him at this age is so devastating but I believe Allah knows the reason why He permit it to happen so we can’t question Him.
“All I pray for now, is for Allah to grant him Aljahna Firdausi and give us all the fortitude to bear the great loss”
Capt. Abdulkarim Bala Na’Allah was killed by assailants at his residence in Malali GRA, Kaduna State.
Until his death he was a trained Captain and one of the Directors at Brinkle Aero Club.
