NCF Nigeria to restore the Agaja coastline.

"The Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF)
has embarked on an ambitious coastal restoration
project, involving the removal of the wreckage of
a tanker vessel from the ocean around the Agaja
Beach
area of Olomo-Meta in the Ojo Local
Government Area of Lagos State.

According to a statement released by the NCF,

disrupting the natural hydrological flow of the ocean".
