PHOTOS: Owerri women protest against the relocation of Eke-Ukwu market.

Dressed in black attires, a large number of women gathered early on Thursday morning in the state capital, Owerri to protest against the relocation of Eke-Ukwu Owerri to Egbeada.

Egbeada is in Mbaitolu LGA.

The decision of the Imo state government to relocate this popular  market has been met with mixed reactions but speaking with journalists recently, Governor Okorocha said that even though the market is an ancestral market, its present location was wrong. He also added that the relocation of the market was in line with his administration’s urban renewal programme which aims at decongesting the state capital to make it attractive for investors.


Do you support the relocation of this popular market?
