Timber Marketers Protest Soldiers’ Shutdown of Market In Imo

BY CHUKWUMA NNAM

Protesters Tuesday stormed the streets in Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State, over soldiers shutting down their timber market.

Trouble began when the timber marketers discovered that the road leading to the market has been barricaded by soldiers.

They were demanding for the soldiers to open the roadblock for them to start their business again.

However, when Vanguard inquired to know from the timber traders they said: “On Monday, we got a report that those who attacked Omuma in Oru East local government area came from  the Timber market, and are members of Eastern Security Network, ESN, and that the security operatives have been investigating the issues.”

“We have also been told that is because that we obeyed the sit-at-home order on the day Nnamdi Kanu appeared in court that is while they have closed down the timber market.”
