The Ministry of Transport, Imo State, has observed with dismay the ongoing erection of illegal structures along the duly mapped out and designated Federal railway route from the Port Harcourt road axis of Owerri in violation of the Owerri Master Plan.

The Ministry of Transport, Imo State wishes to warn that those building along the Federal railway route, designated and mapped out under the Owerri Master Plan for the aforementioned purpose are doing so at their own risk as the Shared Prosperity Government of Senator Hope Uzodinma is presently taking every necessary step to link Imo to other parts of the Country via railway lines that are being constructed across the Country by President Mohammadu Buhari led Federal Government of Nigeria.

The Ministry of Transport, Imo State therefore enjoins all involving in this illegal act as well as those engaging in any form of land grabbing and encroachment to keep off as government at no time reallocated the said land originally designated and mapped out as railway route.

This warning also goes to the corrupt officials at the Ministry of Lands that issue fake and unauthorised land allocation papers to desperate but unsuspecting members of the public as the long arms of the law will soon catch up with them.

Chief(Barr) Rex C. Anunobi
Hon. Commissioner for Transport, Imo State.
