Governor Wike demolishes Slaughter Market (PHOTO)
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has demolished the Oginiba abattoir, popularly known as ‘Slaughter Market’, located at Trans-Amadi Industrial layout, in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of the state.
The governor who gave reasons for demolishing the abattoir says the market has been a den for kidnapers, robbers, rapists and other criminal agents.
Wike stated that besides the demolished slaughter being a haven for criminal elements, its location at the Trans-Amadi Industrial Area is now considered inappropriate in terms of the State government’s urban renewal policy.
The governor, however, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media Kelvin Ebiri, said anyone giving religious or ethnic colouration to the demolition of the slaughter market located at Trans -Amadi Industrial layout in Obio-Akpor council, does not mean well for Rivers State and the country.
