Imo state government Demolish Eke Ukwu Market In Owerri (Photos)

The Imo state government this morning began the demolition of Eke Ukwu market in Owerri the state capital. Armed mobile police officers accompanied government officials that are carrying out the demolition.

The state governor, Rochas Okorocha and residents of the state have been at loggerheads after he disclosed plans by his administration to demolish the market due to the serious traffic trading activities that the market causes along the road.

Indigenes of the state have argued that the market is part of their traditional heritage which should not be demolished but rather be upgraded to a shopping mall.
