Reports reaching Patmos Media Line says the lawmaker, Mante Baraza, killed by some gunmen in Baraza Village on Thursday evening, has been buried according to Islamic rites.
Further reports say tear flowed freely as his body was brought forward for the Islamic prayers by a large crowd that neglected Covid-19 social distancing and face mask rules.
The victim represented Baraza Dass Constituency in the Bauchi State House of Assembly.
His two wives and a one year old were reportedly abducted by the gunmen during the attack. They are yet to be released.
Musa had tested positive for COVID-19 some weeks ago and was recuperating at home when the incident occurred.
