Before the traders got to the market Tuesday morning, the whole shops had been reduced to rubble.

There had been crises for some weeks after the same thugs invaded the market and attempted to demolish it but the traders mobilized themselves and chased the thugs away.

That invasion of the market resulted in serious fracas between the traders and the thugs during which many traders sustained injuries.
