Warri traders want adequate security for Igbudu Market

27 December 2015, 13:50

Warri (NAN) Traders in Igbudu Market, Warri, have appealed to the Delta Government to provide adequate security in the market to save them from the activities of cultists.

Lucky Otu, the President-General of Igbudu Market Traders Association (IMTA), made the call in Warri on Sunday.

Otu said that the cultists had been posing serious security threats to the lives of the traders in the market which is the biggest in the Delta commercial city.

He said that in spite of the presence of some soldiers and local vigilantes in the market, more security personnel were needed to save lives and property in the market.

''The only challenge we are facing in this market is the issue of cultism. Sometimes, they invade the market, intimidate people and loot property.

''Though there are soldiers and local vigilantes on ground, we need more of them to completely stem the activities of the criminals in the market,'' he said.

The president-general, then, commended the Chairman of the Warri South Local Government Area, Mr Mofe Edema, for clearing some of the drains in the market.

''We hope that by next year, government will clear the remaining drains especially the ones in the lower area of the market to enable water to flow into the canal,'' he said. (NAN)
