Some market men and women in Imo State vowed not to obey the fresh lockdown ordered by the government. The new lockdown is expected to commence from Monday, 29 as instructed by the Governor to stop the future spread of coronavirus in the state.
Chiaka Ihuoma, a petty trader at Amakohia Modern Market in Owerri, in an interview voiced that the government should let them sell their wares and provide for the families as they have no other means of survival.
She added that the government has not done enough in providing palliatives to the people during this period of lockdown and appealed that they be allowed to provide for their families.
A butcher in the same Amakohia Modern Market who begged anonymity said that the COVID-19 cases in the state wernt but politicized.
