Hundreds of residents whose properties were demolished by the Nigeria Railway Corporation at the old Port Harcourt Township, Rivers State, for the construction of the Port Harcourt-Maiduguri rail line have cried out for help.

Over 900 displaced residents have also asked for adequate compensation to help them find new housing.

The affected residents, however, said they were not given ample notice of eviction before their property, which they claim they paid for, was pulled down, rendering them homeless.

During a protest on Saturday, some of them alleged that they paid for the land space on which they built, describing the action of the railroad management as callous.
