Desist from noise pollution or be shut – Lagos govt warns clubs in Lekki

The Lagos state government has threatened to shut down night clubs, bars and lounges in the Lekki axis of Lagos State who fail to desist from noise pollution. A statement by the Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Tunji Bello, said enforcement raids were recently carried out on some nightclubs in Lekki following repeated complaints by residents. According to Bello, Prest Jazz Club on Admiralty Way, Lekki, was shut after enforcement officers of the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) raided the club and found giant speakers and musical instruments blaring loudly. He added that many residents of highbrow Lekki, especially elderly citizens, have inundated his office with petitions about the adverse effect of noise pollution on their health every night till the early hours of the day. Bello who stated that the exercise will be continuous, advised clubs notorious for noise pollution to retrace their steps before it is too late. He said such facilities would be shut down and the owners prosecuted.The post Desist from noise pollution or be shut – Lagos govt warns clubs in Lekki appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
