Kaduna (Nigeria) — Member Representing Jaba/Zangon Kataf Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, Sunday Marshal Katung has described late Dr. Harrison Yusuf Bungwon Agwatyap (a traditional ruler) as a peacemaker.
The lawmaker also expressed great shock over the demise of the royal father.
A statement signed by Sunday Marshal Katung also commiserated with the Atyap traditional council and Kaduna state at the moment of the mourning.
“He devoted his life to the progress of his people in the areas of agriculture, education and socioeconomic development of Atyap people and Kaduna State as a whole.
“The late Agwatyap was well known for his promotion of peaceful coexistence of the people irrespective of their religion and where they come from.
