VOINJAMA, May 19 (LINA) - Construction work on a joint security office in John Town, Voinjama District in Lofa County, is at a standstill due to lack of construction materials.

Major Sumo did not state the cost of the building, but pointed out that the project is an initiative of security officers assigned at the check point and the citizens of John Town and Duogomai Town.

Sumo named cement, doors, windows, paint, among others, as materials still lackingbto complete the project.
