The Ikokwu trader’s Association has asked its members to shut down tomorrow in protest to the alleged refusal by the police to release the autopsy result of late Chima Ikwunado.
The Chairman of Ikokwu traders associate said they decided to shut down their business to press home their demand to release the corpse of Chima Ikwunado and also strike out the case and prosecution of Ikokwu 29 whom the police arraigned on trump up charges from the court.
He said its only when we protest that government hears us, if we come out to the street they will arrest our boys and tagged them criminals so we are seating at home and we would not come out. All we are asking for is for the government to intervene and tell the police to release the corpse of Chima and the Autopsy and also release are boys who are forced to go to court processes and proceedings for crime they didn’t commit.
