Photos: Alpha Beach Areas Under Threat Of Erosion From Eko Atlantic Dredging
According to reports, the photos you’re seeing are the result of massive sand-dredging at the former bar beach area, now popularly called the Eko Atlantic. There have been unconfirmed instances of over-flooding and the water breaking through ocean barriers causing damage to roads and private property on the adjacent beach front, further down towards the Alpha beach areas of Lagos.
One of the main catalysts is also that a functioning drainage system doesn’t exist in these areas as waste water is left to spill straight into the ground. This is a disaster waiting to happen and while we know it is an election year and very little attention is paid to these kind of things, we implore the necessary authorities to take proper action before this escalates further.
