South East markets to be shut over transfer of detained Boko Haram terrorists to Anambra

The Amalgamated Market Traders Association of Anambra State (AMATAS) has announced that all the markets in the state and across the South East would be shut today to protest the Federal Government’s transfer of detained Boko Haram terrorists to Ekwulobia Prisons in Anambra State.

The umbrella traders’ body also announced that there would be a peaceful protest today over the issue.

An announcement late yesterday signed on behalf of AMATAS by the President General, Chief Okwudili Ezenwankwo Ewepudike, and Secretary, Chief Chuma Eruchalu, said: “This is to inform all the traders in Anambra State and South East that all markets in the South East will remain closed tomorrow, Thursday, 9th July, 2015, so we can all embark on peaceful demonstration against Boko Haram detainees in Anambra State.”

AMATAS expressed regrets for any inconveniences to be caused by the market closure and protests.
