“I was inside the market when they came around 7am in Keke. They were five in number and looked fierce with some wearing dreadlocks.
“When they wanted to enter, the gate man refused to open the gate, they now told him that they learnt the market was opening on Mondays in contravention of the Sit at Home order.
“They now threatened to burn down the market if they returned and met it open. They then left after taking pictures of the market”
The traders closed the market afterwards while complaining of being forced to close business on a Monday during the festive season.
It is high time IPOB makes good her threat of apprehending these hoodlums terrorizing the people under the guise of enforcing the sit-at-home which IPOB has cancelled.
