An alleged attempt by government officials to demolish the New Artisan Market was fiercely resisted by the Hausa traders who reportedly used Ak-47 to chase the officials away.
The Hausa traders reportedly seized the Government bulldozer, chased away the police that accompanied members of the Enugu State Capital Territory Development Authority.
The gun wielding traders blocked the NNPC end of the Enugu/Porthacourt expressway stopping vehicular movement just as they set up bunfires along the express.
Akelicious could not reach the chairman of the Enugu Capital Territory Cheif Ken Onoh for comment.
