It was rumoured that some angry Abakaliki traders are no longer happy with the way things are moving in the market.
This lead to some of them suing the Governor of Ebonyi State, Eng. Dave Umahi to court.
This incident lead to one of the SA’s to the governor to enter the market with some thugs to take one of the plaintiffs to government house.
The people in the same line with the victim bluntly refused to allow the SA take their member to the government house because they feared the member might end up at the police station, as this was going on, one of the thugs brought out knife and stabbed one of the traders.
He was rushed to the hospital but report has it that the person is dead.
Currently, the whole market is closed with all the traders protesting badly.
