Shops at the popular Ekwulobia market were all locked.

The traders called on the federal government to rescind the decision and return the detainees to the North.

The protesting traders were led by the coordinator of the South East Traders Association, Chigozie Akudolue, who noted that the relocation of the detainees would worsen the security situation in the zone.
