Yet-to-be-identified vandals have reportedly stolen some road fittings installed on the newly inaugurated Second Niger bridge.
The development was confirmed on Wednesday by a source in the works ministry, who said the vandals carted away the expansion joint walkway on axis 330 of the bridge.
According to the source who does not want his name published, “Unfortunately, It’s true. The stolen fitting is an element from the expansion joints of the bridge. Drivers on that road have to be careful as the damaged part can cause discomfort to motorists.”
Also, the incident was confirmed by another source, who stated that supervising engineers are not happy about the incident.
Recall that on May 23, the former president, Muhammadu Buhari, commissioned the N336 billion bridge, via an online platform, Zoom alongside seven other infrastructural projects.
