The House of Representatives member, Suleiman Aliyu, representing Lere federal constituency, Kaduna State, is dead.
Aliyu’s personal assistant, Tukur Maibindiga, confirmed his death to newsmen.
He said the lawmaker died in the early hours of Tuesday at a hospital in Kaduna after a brief illness.
Aliyu was sworn-in as a member of the lower legislative chamber in March 2020, after an Appeal Court declared him winner of the constituency’s election.
He was the sixth member of the House of Representatives to have died in the ninth assembly — and the third to pass-on in the last one month.
