The worsening state of insecurity hit Enugu, the capital of Enugu state on 22 April, 2021 when pandemonium broke out at the New Artisan along Enugu Port Harcourt express road, Enugu . Gunshots were heard and vehicles and other properties were destroyed.
Reacting to the development, the State government released a statement which partly reads:
The attention of Enugu State Government has been drawn to the brigandage, roguery, banditry and lawlessness exhibited by some hoodlums at New Artisan Market today being Thursday, the 22nd of April 2021, acting under the cloak of a demonstration while surreptitiously and unlawfully disobeying an order of Court. The social and mass media have also been inundated with divergent tales of what perhaps appeared a crisis.
It has become necessary to make it abundantly clear that the aforesaid property illegally occupied by traders, particularly livestock dealers from the North, belongs to the family of a revered traditional Ruler and Statesman, late HRH Igwe Gabriel Nnaji (NWAJANJA) of which there is a subsisting judgement of the court to that effect.
