Lagos — The Kuramo Beach in Lagos, shut down to allow for demolition of illegal structures and evacuation of illegitimate occupants, has been reopened.
According to reports, activities at the beach, such as picnics by tourists, had yet to pick up in earnest.
During a visit a few picnickers and tourists were seen at the beach.
Besides, operators of cabins were seen waiting eagerly for customers, apparently because many people were still unaware of the beach's re-opening.
The Kuramo Beach was shut down on July 5, while illegal structures and hoodlums were removed by a task force that comprised police and naval personnel, as well as government and beach management officials.
Some of the cabin operators, who spoke, said that the beach was now safer and better, while commending the government for carrying out the demolition of illegal structures on the beach.
