Following the recent loss of Chief Nyesom Wike at the tribunal and his subsequent loss at the Supreme Court, hundreds of market women stormed the streets of Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital to express their grievances.

Linda Ikeji reports that the women in their hundreds, took to the streets this afternoon to stage a protest, and directed their grievances at the Felix Obuah, the state chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Reports say the women walked from Old Township in Port Harcourt to the PDP secretariat where they expressed their displeasure with the turn of events in their state.
