The Lagos state government on Thursday, May 16,  temporarily shut down some business enterprises and a church in the state over noise pollution and environmental violations.

In a statement released, the state Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources said the affected establishments were repeatedly warned but they failed to heed the warning. He wrote

‘’Today, the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency @LasepaOfficial (LASEPA) conducted a comprehensive enforcement operation aimed at curbing noise pollution and other environmental violations in the Surulere and Orile lganmu areas of Lagos State.

Despite repeated warnings and  abatement notices issued in the past, numerous establishments,  persisted in contravening LASEPA's directives. Consequently, these non-compliant establishments have been temporarily shut down to ensure strict compliance with environmental regulations.

Among the affected establishments include Red Pepper Bites Limited, Lacibo Restaurant & Lounge, Lakeem Suites, Krusty Butter Bakery & Pastries, Addie, Christian Ministry, and Don Nelson Resort & Suites.''
