Traders from Gulu and Amuru districts have been blocked from accessing Apaa trading centre.

Many traders flock the market every Tuesday`s to buy and sell their goods.

Pabo Sub County LCV councillor Abola pa` Lacaka says, the traders were stopped from accessing the market in Apaa trading centre by UPDF soldiers.

Dickson Ocan, a businessman from Pabo trading centre in Amuru district says, one of the police officers at the border between Amuru and Adjumani where the army detach was erected says, the traders are being blocked because the market is in a wildlife reserve and business cannot continue to done it.

Adjumani LC5 Chairperson James Leku Pilli says the market in which the traders are going to is an illegal market following last year`s district council resolution of relocating the market to Zoka C because it was in a wildlife reserve.

Leku says the district has failed to collect revenue from the market.

Kilak North MP Anthony Akol says the relocation of the market has been done illegally following the court injunction by Gulu High Court. He explains that the matter of Apaa is still for discussion in parliament and yet a select committee established to handle the issue has not come up with their resolutions.

Akol says that he will meet the Speaker of Parliament and the Prime Minister over the matter.
