No fewer than 30 people sustained injuries, Tuesday, while goods worth about N10 million and 10 vehicles were destroyed, when some traders opposed to imposition of Caretaker Committee at the New Auto Spare Parts Market Nkpor clashed with government officials who were said to have been sent by the Anambra State Government to inaugurate a Caretaker Committee appointed to run the market

The traders had last week protested against government imposition of Caretaker Committee, suspension of their election, and alleged refusal by the former administration to render account of their stewardship for alleged over ten years of their administration, and appealed to Governor Obiano to prevail on the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Trade and the Anambra Markets Amalgamated Traders Association, AMATAS to allow them conduct their election according to their constitutional provision
