Unknown assailants on Monday slaughtered the daughter of Musa Illu, the Director General of Governor Umaru Al – Makura’s campaign organization.

Mr. Illu’s daughter, Amina Suleiman, was seven months pregnant.

Mr. Illu’s younger brother, Namairo Babai, told PREMIUM TIMES that late Amina was found in the pool of her blood with her neck cut and a knife in her stomach.

Mr. Babai said that late Amina was killed in her home in faraway Katsina State when her husband, Suleiman Mohammed, was on his way to Zaria for his doctorate degree programme.

“Her husband was on his way to ABU Zaria. After the weekend when he tried calling but couldn’t get her, he sent someone to check just to be told that she was slaughtered and in poll of her blood”.

Mr. Babai added that late Amina who got married two years ago will be buried by 4 p.m. on Tuesday in her husband’s home town in Katsina State.

When PREMIUM TIMES visited the family compound along Shendam road, Lafia, Nasarawa, sympathizers and family members were seen consoling the father of Musa Illu who was weeping.

Among the first callers was the state’s first lady, Salamatu Tanko Almakura.
