The Paramount ruler of the Atyap nation the Agwatyap, Sir Dominic Gambo Yahaya has appealed for restrain, total cessation of hostilities, calm and forgiveness to allow peace reign in the chiefdom in the spirit of the Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
This is even as he congratulated the Muslim Umnah in his Chiefdom, Kaduna State and the nation at large for witnessing another Eid-el-Kabir, a feast that epitomises genuine fear of Allah, love of neighbor and peaceful coexistence.
The Royal father also assured that the Atyap community is opened to receiving and addressing all manner of complaints and most especially, practicable suggestions from any quarters on how to address the monster bedevilling the Chiefdom.
This is contained in a press statement on the security challenges in the Atyap Chiefdom, issued to newsmen at the Agwatyap palace.
The Agwatyap said in the past two weeks several villages in the chiefdom suffered attacks that led to loss of many lives and property with many people languishing in Internally Displaced Persons camps as result of the untold and unjustifiable hardship meted out on them.
The Traditional ruler described the ugly development as most unfortunate as it happened despite the collective sacrifices and the peace initiative he personally brokered.
He, however, commended the Atyap Chiefdom Peace and Security Partnership Committee, Atyap Chiefdom Council Members and Elders, Security Agencies, District and Village heads and youths for toeing the path of peace to ensure that the situation did not get worse and urged for sustenance of the good spirit.
While passionately appealing to all tiers of Government, particularly Kaduna State Government to as soon as possible, strengthen the security apparatus in the Chiefdom and support the displaced people to rehabilitate their burnt houses, the Royal father also solicited for palliatives to cushion the painful and unbearable effects of the losses.
