Newspaper Vendors have embarked on strike in Owerri, Imo State capital after seven of their members were arrested by security operatives.

No fewer than seven newspaper vendors and distribution agents in Imo State were whisked away by the operatives.

The vendors were swooped on Monday morning at their base located at Number 5 Rotibi Street, Douglas Road, Owerri, as the circulation of the day’s newspapers was ongoing.

Some of the vendors and distributors alleged that the police operatives accused them of circulating newspaper publications that had stories on the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra.
