A member of the House of Representatives, representing Jos North/Basa Federal Constituency of Plateau State, Alhaji Haruna Maitala is dead.
He died in a ghastly road accident along Bade-Gitata road Friday evening on his way to Jos from Abuja.
A family member confirmed his death Saturday morning.
Hon. Maitala died alongside his son, Ja’afar, driver and security aide, who were all in the vehicle, the source said.
His death comes barely a month after another lawmaker, Yuguda Killa from Jigawa State, passed on.
Mr Maitala is the third federal lawmaker to die this year.
About ten federal lawmakers have died since the inauguration of the ninth assembly in 2019.
