Landmark Africa, owner of Landmark Beach on Victoria Island, responded to the demolition of parts of its property for the Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway project, stating that six years of investment was destroyed in just six hours.

In X’s (formerly Twitter) post on Tuesday, the company expressed its discontent with the Federal Government’s demolition of its structures but expressed gratitude for public support.

On Monday, a section of Landmark Beach on Victoria Island, Lagos, was demolished to make room for the Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway, Nigeria’s largest public infrastructure project so far.

This occurred despite concerns over the potential job losses and impacts on livelihoods.

Minister of Works, David Umahi, defended the demolition, stating that the Landmark Center was situated on the Federal Government’s Right-of-Way, making the action necessary.
Earlier, the minister had assured that the coastal highway project’s design would only require the removal of 50 meters of shoreline and a few shanties, while “permanent structures” would remain intact.

However, images and video footage of the demolition revealed that several structures along the coastline, including cabanas and football turf, were dismantled.

The Breeze Beach Club, located at the center, was also demolished.
