"It is our sincere hope that this unfortunate incident would not discourage other members of the diaspora or foreign investors from returning or investing in Nigeria as our over 20-year foray into this country leaves us convinced of the immense opportunities to be harnessed for the good of all; and particularly the resourceful Nigerian youth who form the backbone of the Landmark Group."

As contained in the statement, the Landmark Group revealed that other lucrative investment openings are available with its 'Landmark 2.0 and beachfront tourism opportunities.'

The company emphasised that talks are ongoing with prospective investors in three West African countries and two states in Nigeria regarding developing beachfront tourism in their localities.

"We are presently in discussions with a collection of investors who have shown keen interest in jointly rebuilding the greatest tourism platform in West Africa thereby not only recreating jobs which have now been lost but increasing them. We have identified a couple of attractive waterfront sites for purchase and are determined to move on from the pain and devastation to not just survive as a business but thrive.

"We are also pleased to announce that we are having in-depth discussions with three West African countries and two states in Nigeria regarding developing beachfront tourism in their localities, and we very much look forward to these new and exciting opportunities which could help enhance Nigeria and Africa's stature in the global tourism industry," the statement added.

The demolition sparked a wave of reactions from the various stakeholders, residents and tourists who patronise the resort. Many residents and frequent visitors expressed disappointment, lamenting the loss of a cherished recreational spot.
