imageKaduna (Nigeria) — Senator representing Southern Kaduna Senatorial Zone, in Nigeria’s National Assembly, Danjuma Laah, sunday joined other sons and daughters of the area to condole Southern Kaduna over the demise of the Gyatyap of Atyap land, Dr. Harroson Bungwon.

The traditional ruler died in his sleep in his Palace in Zangon Kataf town, Zangon Kataf Local Government Area, of Kaduna state on Wednesday at the age of 67.

A statement by Senator Laah condoled the great people of Atyap Traditional Council, Atyap land and indeed the entire Southern Kaduna zone, over the loss of their paramount ruler.

“He was not only an inspirational leader of the Atyap nation, a wise counsellor, a leader totally committed to the wellbeing of his Chiefdom, he was a peacemaker and treated all the various sub-groups in his chiefdom with dignity.

“As we mourn this monumental loss of our father and mentor, I call on all the people of Atyap Chiefdom to rally round his immediate family with every needed support, especially with prayers at this their trying period.

“I pray that God our creator heals our hearts and grant us succour in this sad period.

“May his gentle soul find eternal rest in the bosom of the Lord”

Bungwon had a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, lectured at the Kaduna Polytechnic and became Kaduna State Commissioner of Works in 1993. He went back to his lecturing job before ascending the throne in 2005
