The Port Harcourt-Maiduguri Eastern rail line work has been suspended due to insecurity and vandalism of railway properties along the corridor. This was disclosed by the Minister of Transportation, Mu’azu Sambo.

Sambo made this known in a statement made available to newsmen in Lagos yesterday. He spoke while on an inspection tour of the project in Port Harcourt, Rivers.

Sambo said China Civil Engineering and Construction Company (CCEC), the contractor handling the rehabilitation and reconstruction of the project, had complained of attacks on its workers along the Abia State axis.
