Meanwhile, youths in Issele Uku community have complied with the directive of Obi Agbogidi Nduka to demolish the market situated at the Issele Uku junction.
Leader of the demolition team, Chief Gabriel Ebite, said that the monarch gave the directive due to the fact that he was not notified about the project, adding that a stranger cannot come to do such project without the approval of the custodian of the land.
