From The Report Reaching Vivian Gist , one of the Readers sent this to my mail. by Name Martins He said,
straight to the point!
So my “waka waka” took me this early morning to school road by mosque Aba,Abia? state..so i could get some things there,and what did i see; Fire,blood,gunshot everywhere!!
I came down,asked around and got to know that the fight was between the government Task Force of the state;who came into the market two days ago and said they had orders from the sitting governor to bring down shops/small spaces which are NOT? in the market building…so the traders all disagreed that such A thing wont happen and that if their shops were brought down;how would they do their businesses??
So the Task force men still insisted and went on to destroy the shops;hence the traders couldnt bear it anymore and burnt the car which the task force men came with(Camry)…
So just this morning;the task force men came for their own revenge with arms and started shooting in the market place;cutting whomever was seen on sight with their knives and that was how the whole fight started all over again…the Traders now retaliated back and that was how the whole continous shooting,breaking of bottle,burning of th?ings at sight,blood etc commenced…
Attached are small pics i was able to take before una hear “stories that? touch”..
