“Earlier, another incident occurred on Tuesday 8th September, 2020, at Sagwaza, where some suspected Atyas kataf criminals attacked some innocent Fulani pastoralists and injured one Malam Hassan and his son Musa Hassan, who are currently receiving treatment in a private hospital at Zonkwa in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area.
“We condemn these unprovoked attacks by these Atyap criminal elements,who are hell-bent on sabotaging the peace processes in the area.
“We are appealing to the perpetrators of these attacks to, in the interest of peace, refrain from these breaches of the peace accord that was reached and respect their leaders and parents who are working day and night to restore peace, law and order in the area.”
