Atyap Community Development Association (ACDA) President, Mr. Samuel Timbuwak Achie accompanied by NEC members paid a visit to the 15 Atyap elders who are detained in connection to the crisis in their land on Wednesday May 5, 2021.
They were scattered in seven Police Stations around Kaduna metropolis.
“We met them in good condition and in high spirits, with none of them broken emotionally.. In fact, some of them said that the difference between their cells and their homes is the freedom of movement,” ACDA President told journalists after the visit.
The president asured them that the entire Atyap nation is with them in prayers and encouraged them to keep their spirit alive.
He also assured them that efforts are been made to get them reunited with their families.
He told them of the resolve of the NEC to follow the path of dialogue with all residents of the Atyap chiefdom to ensure lasting peace is achieved.
They all showed gratitude and said they’re happy seeing the ACDA EXCOS, and were encouraged by their presence.
The president took time to also appreciate the Nigerian Police personnel for the show of professionalism in handling detainees in all their various cells visited.
The president also appreciated the show of love by the entire Atyap sons all over that took time out to visit and encourage them, with a special thanks to the ACDA Kaduna branch for making sure they don’t lack in food supply.
