A member of the House of Representatives, Haruna Maitala, is dead.

WITHIN NIGERIA gathered that Haruna Maitala died alongside his son, driver and security aide.

Until his death, he represented Jos North/Bassa federal constituency of Plateau State.

This is coming barely a month after another lawmaker, Yuguda Killa from Jigawa State, passed on.

Maitala is the third federal lawmaker to die this year.

Ten federal lawmakers have died since the inauguration of the ninth assembly in 2019.
