The Member representing Barkin Ladi constituency in the Plateau State House of Assembly, Hon. Peter Gyendeng has appealed for prayers in the face of renewed attacks in the Local Government Area.

Mr. Gyendeng in a New Year broadcast on Tuesday equally solicited prayers for peace in the State and Nigeria at large.

Mr. Gyendeng's constituency has witnessed series of deadly attacks over the past one week.

This is after months of ceasefire fire which saw some internally displaced persons returning to their homes.

Gyendeng who is seeking reelection was once detained for attempting to speak up against perceived bias by government securities.

He is however believed to have lately been busy networking between his constituents and securities towards ending the resurging attacks.
