“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.

The Kaduna State Police Command’s Public Relations officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, confirmed the incident.
NAN also reports that the remains of the pilot were buried on Sunday evening at Unguwan Sarki Cemetery, Kaduna.
The Commissioner of Police, Kaduna State Command, Mudasiru Abdullahi, has ordered a full scale investigation into the assassination of Ibn Na-Allah.
Abdullahi gave the order late Sunday in Kaduna in a statement issued by the command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige.
“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 CP was quoted as saying in the statement.
