Member representing Lere federal Constituency, Kaduna state, North-west Nigeria, Suleiman Aliyu is dead.
Tukur Maibindiga, Aliyu’s personal assistant, confirmed his death to TheCable.
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 is 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.
