He said security agencies made the discoveries during search operations both within and around the market area following incessant reports of security breaches.

“Kidnapping, armed robbery, prostitution, narcotics trade and other social vices around the market necessitated the raid as some brothels were recently brought down,” the governor said.

He said as part of moves to change the narrative, his administration has resolved to transform the market to a daily general one with different sections, including that of livestock

Otti announced that henceforth, the market would operate from 6am to 6pm as “we have began fencing it all in our efforts to ensure adequate security both within and outside.”
