A member of the House of Representatives, representing the Jos North/Bassa Federal Constituency, Hon Haruna Maitala is dead.
The lawmaker reportedly died in a road accident along Bade-Gitata road Friday night on his way to Jos.
He died alongside his son, driver and security aide, who were all in the vehicle, our source said.
The cause of the accident is unclear at this time. The spokesperson of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Bisi Kareem, did not respond to phone calls and text messages when contacted.
This is coming barely a month after another lawmaker, Yuguda Killa from Jigawa State, passed on.
