PIC. 8. PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATION BY TRADERS AT BRIDGE-HEAD DRUG MARKET IN ONITSHA ON WEDNESDAY (11/9/13), OVER PLANS TO BAN THE SALES OF DRUGS IN OPEN MARKETS IN THE COUNTRY.

NO fewer than 30 people were wounded Friday morning when some traders at the Onitsha Bridge Head drug market tried to resist the Onitsha from closing the market to enable the traders attend the ongoing seminar being conducted for them by the Pharmaceutical Council of Nigeria.

The crisis would have resulted to blood bath but for the timely intervention of the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, in charge of Fegge Division of the Nigerian Police Onitsha, Mr. Rabiu Garba who mobilized his men and personally visited the market to address the warring traders.
