June 20, 2016 – Elegushi Royal Family Shut Down Beach Over Death Of 2 UNILAG Post Graduate Students

To honour the two drowned students of the UNILAG and to improve the safety and management standards at the beach, the Elegushi Royal family of Ikate Land and owner of the facility, has announced the official closure of the beach.

Addressing a briefing on behalf of the family at the Elegushi Palace in Lekki Saturday, the Asiwaju of Ikate Land, Prince Olanrewaju Elegushi, while condoling with the family of the late students, noted that apart from the support already accorded the families of the deceased up till the time of their burial, the management of the beach deems it right to close shop in their honour.

He, however, refuted the claim that the death of the victims was caused by the poor safety facilities at the beach, saying every necessary safety measure including the provision of lifeguards, flags as well as security and ambulances were usually on ground at the beach
