Check out pictures from the controversial Eke Ukwu Market
The Eke Ukwu market has been in the news recently following the demolition and unfortunate death of a young boy. We visited the location yesterday to see things for ourselves and got some pictures. We visited from the Tetlow side of the market. If you know the market very well, one thing that will get your attention is the fact that you will be able to see St Paul’s Catholic Church from the Old Stadium. Check out the pictures yourself.
Our POPcentric crew also entered the city of Owerri to ask questions about the demolition. It was mixed reactions as some of the respondents supported while others were not in support of the exercise. The team also visited one of the new markets where the traders were relocated. Most of them expressed satisfaction with the new site.
