“This marks the fifth occasion they’ve descended upon us, causing distress and turmoil.

“We’ve reached our breaking point, and if they dare to return, I can assure you, there will be bloodshed,” one trader declared solemnly.

The sense of vulnerability permeating the market has reached alarming levels, prompting urgent calls for intervention from relevant authorities.

“They boast about their influence over the police in Kumasi, and sadly, our repeated pleas for help to the authorities have fallen on deaf ears.

“I have no doubt in my mind that it is my late uncle’s widow who has enlisted their services to intimidate us and drive us away from our rightful property,” he affirmed.
