Oyogist.com has learned that Alhaji Abubakar Muazu Magarya, the father of the Speaker, Zamfara State House of Assembly, Hon. Nasiru Magarya has reportedly died of heart attack while in captivity at the bandit’s den.
Recall that the Speaker’s father who was the District Head of Magarya village, was kidnapped by bandits about two months ago, along with his wife, a three-week-old baby and three others.
While the kidnapped victims were rescued on Saturday (October 2), the Speaker’s father was not among them.
Speaking after his rescue, the elder brother of the deceased, Malam Dahiru Magarya, who was among the kidnapped victims said, the speaker’s father died of a heart attack.
“One of the bandits’ kingpins popularly known as Kachalla informed me that my brother died due to heart failure while in captivity. We were separated when they kidnapped us, they took my brother to another camp but it was Kachalla, one of the commanders of the bandits that told me about the death of my brother which was a result of a heart attack hours before our rescue,” he said.
