A decade after the project began, crucial sea defences in southern Nigerian town remain unfinished.

Nearly eleven years after an engineering company won the contract to build shoreline defences in the southern town of Ayetoro in Nigeria’s Ondo State, and with more than three billion naira already paid out in “mobilisation fees”, the project has not been completed.

The failed project that was agreed in 2004 has created economic and social hardship for local residents who are at the mercy of the Atlantic Ocean and frequently face being flooded.
