Lagos Govt Orders Closure of Lekki Conservation Centre Over Faulty Walkway

The Lagos State Government has ordered the immediate closure of the Lekki Conservation Centre (LCC).

This comes after a visitor took to social media to raise alarm about the state of the canopy walkway at the facility.

The state government also ordered immediate and extensive repairs in the affected areas.

Lanre Omojola, Director-General of the Lagos State Safety Commission, said yesterday, Jan. 23, led a team on a visit to the Centre, said that the safety of Lagos residents remained the highest priority of the state government at all times.

Reacting to the development, the management of Lekki Conservation-Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF) said: “Our attention has been drawn to a video making the rounds about an incident that happened on December 16, 2023, of one broken metal brace on the canopy walkway at the Lekki Conservation Centre (LCC). Before the festive peak period, we conducted pre-festive maintenance from December 4–13, 2023.

“It is with the utmost sense of responsibility that we state that it did not fall on our blind spot. In line with our response protocol, the team of technicians swung into action immediately, closed the canopy walkway to tourists, and repaired it that day.”

Also speaking on the issue, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of NCF, Oladapo Soneye, noted that it is in line with the foundation’s safety protocol to maintain its facilities periodically, especially after festive seasons like the Yuletide season, and stressed that the center has been officially closed for routine maintenance since January 16, 2024.
