They also accused Eze Opara, former Commissioner for Trade and Investment, Hon. Simeon Ebegbulem, and Members and leadership of Imo State Amalgamated Market Traders Association (ISAMATA) and a market developer of destroying the market in a ploy to rebuild it into an ultramodern market stalls with a view to hand back to the original owners.

Speaking, Lolo Stella Williams, said that the women had resisted such a move to deprive the women of their ancestral market because it was the only market serving the entire community.

According to her, Eze Innocent Opara was accosted when the women heard that he had opted for the outright sale of the market against the earlier agreement that the developer would hand over after the market when completed which she said the monarch openly denied.

She expressed shock that despite the monarch’s denial, the developer after completion, started selling the newly constructed 198 shops at the whopping sum of N7 to N8 million without giving the shops back to the original owners (women) as earlier agreed.

She pointed out that all the attempts meant to correct the anomaly proved abortive as the traditional ruler and his conspirators vehemently refused to deal with the original shop owners (women) which she said that the women rejected.
