Award-winning Journalist and producer of the critically acclaimed BBC #SexForGrades documentary, Kiki Mordi has another one up her sleeves.

‘What Happened To Tarkwa Bay’ is an expose on life on the island as told by residents themselves. Through her production outfit Document Women aimed at telling stories that affect women and vulnerable groups, Kiki puts the lens across the settlements in the bay, unraveling the true story behind the forceful eviction of residents.

Tarkwa Bay is no new place to many Lagosians and tourists who find it as a recreational attraction. However, the coastal island settlement was home to thousands of Lagosians for over three decades until January 21 2020. Residents of Tarkwa bay were forcefully evicted by the Navy who shot and assaulted people regardless of gender or age.

While no notice was earlier tendered to the 4,500 residents, the government bases its decision mostly on pipeline vandalism and increased criminal activities in the region.
