Traders at the Asafo Market in the Ashanti Region have expressed joy over the demolition of a storey building on a waterway in the market.

The demolition came after traders issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) to pull down the structure.

They alleged that the market gets flooded whenever there was a downpour due to the presence of the building hence losing their properties.
