Sen Anyanwu Expresses Worry Over Closure Of Markets In Imo


Sen Anyanwu Says Action Capable Of Subjecting Imolites To Another Hunger 

-Condemns Killing Of Security Agents , Unarmed Civilians In Imo.

Worried by the closure of markets in Imo State, Senator Samuel Anyanwu says that such action was capable of subjecting Imo people to another level of hunger, if not handled properly.

He advised those responsible for the illegal closure to rescind the idea, adding that the security challenges that greeted the state few months ago would have discouraged anyone not to consider closing the markets as an alternative.

According to him, “the state government should apply diplomacy and call those directly or indirectly connected with the closure to order without further delay, knowing that trading remains the only source of livelihood for an average Igbo man.”

He noted that the cost of food items had gone up again since the markets were abruptly and illegally shut down, appealing to the traders whose shops were closed to remain calm.

Anyanwu further condemned in strong terms the wanton killing of security agents and unarmed civilians in the state by unidentified gunmen, describing such act as not only uncalled for, but barbaric and wicked.

He charged security agencies to collaborate with traditional and religious leaders in various communities to unmask those behind the dastardly act, advising them to always show their readiness to protect the masses rather than intimidating them.
