The market is still being demolished. The traders will re-settle somewhere else one day. But this dead kid will never wake up again. This is the cost of dispute between a governor and ‘his people’ over relocation of a market – Eke-Ukwu Owerri. The kid was caught in the cross-fire of shots from security operatives while they repelled angry youth of Owerri.
All the ‘super story’ being told – he gave them 48 hours, there was an injunction, the new site of the market at Ohii is no where near completion – all these cock and bull stories have eventually led to the death of these innocent kids. So the market demolition is leaving trails of blood on its path. I hope the stake holders bear this in mind.
The young man below was also killed today while the other one was at the point of death when this picture was taken. This is different from those who sustained bullet injuries and were rushed to the Federal Medical Center, Owerri; not to mention million of Naira destroyed in the process of demolition.
