Vandalization and Destruction of Goods and Properties at Ikoku

Secretary of the Ikoku Traders Union, Nnmadi Levi have narrated how the spare parts traders were called in the early hours of Wednesday by local guards to report that men in police uniform, together with suspected thugs and cultists from the area came in their numbers to beat them up and chased them out of the market before they allegedly began vandalizing and looting of their goods.
He said the union leaders gathered this morning at their shops to witness first hand the level of vandalization and destruction and described it as wickedness.

Nnamdi Levi decried that the traders who have been at home for months following the long closure of the market by the state government are yet to even recover from the long lockdown and wondered why such wickedness will be perpetrated against the traders.

The traders resumed business on Wednesday to meet the wanton destruction of buildings, shops have been vandalized and properties and goods worth millions of naira looted from their shops.

He appealed to well meaning Nigerians to come to the aid of the traders.
