The Management of Wonderland Lagos has opened up on the closure of the edifice by the Lagos State Government, saying nobody died in the facility
In a statement issued on Tuesday by Mr. Ezekiel Adamu, Wonderland’s management and Co-Founder, said a video of a parent’s complaint had come to its attention at Eko Energy City, regarding a supposed open wire incident and other safety concerns.
Before Wonderland Lagos opened its doors, a risk assessment was conducted by Lagos State after which the entertainment city began to function. “While we provide spaces for various vendors, regular safety checks are conducted periodically to ensure that our vendors are adhering to our rules, regulations, and safety policies,” Ezekiel said.
“We can assure the public that no lives have been lost at Wonderland Lagos, our safety policies are intact, the safety and leisure of our customers is our topmost priority, and we are working with all of our vendors as well as Lagos State, to ensure that Wonderland Lagos is a safe space for all of our children and families.Children have a right to leisure, play and culture; safe parks and playgrounds are essential, and we do understand this at Wonderland Lagos. We have now requested another risk assessment to be conducted by Lagos State and after a successful approval, we will re-open.“We have unfortunately been unable to identify the child in the video. If anyone can provide us with a lead or if the parent can contact us urgently on firstname.lastname@example.org we would be most grateful. Wonderland Lagos will continue to strive to ensure “safe and high quality” service to all of its customers. Thank you for your concern and patronage,” Ezekiel added.
The Lagos State Government had on Monday shutdown Wonderland, making the decision after a guest was electrocuted at the event venue.
