Traders from the shut Kuramo Beach under the aegis of Kuramo Tourism Investors Association, yesterday, demanded relocation and compensation from the Lagos State Government, to ease the loss they suffered from the ocean surge and demolition of their shanties.
It would be recalled that the state government pulled down the remaining structures at the beach on Sunday and barricaded the area.
Secretary of the association, Mr. Micheal Onuwaje, told Vanguard prior to their meeting with the Chairman of Iru-Victoria Island Local Council Development Area, said these were some of their demands, to be forwarded to the council boss for onward delivery to Governor Babatunde Fashola.
Vanguard gathered that the meeting was scheduled for 2 p.m, yesterday, at the Council Secretariat, Victoria Island.
Onuwaje noted that a larger percentage of the displaced traders had spent their productive life in the community and would need relocation by the government to ease the losses they suffered from the entire exercise.
