A member of the House of Representatives for Jos North/Bassa federal constituency of Plateau State, Haruna Maitala, is dead.
Mr Maitala died in a road accident along Bade-Gitata road Friday night on his way to Jos.
According to reports, he died alongside his son, driver and security aide, who were all in the vehicle.
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.
Since the inauguration of the ninth assembly in 2019, five lawmakers have died, most of the deaths were due to ill health.
