Lagos govt shuts more facilities for noise pollution as thugs attack operatives

The Lagos State Government has warned the general public, particularly unrepentant noise polluters, to desist from attacking its officials on duty or face the full wrath of the law.

According to Dailypost, The General-Manager of LASEPA, Dr Adedolapo Fasawe, on Sunday, gave the waning as the agency clamped down on more than 20 facilities over various environmental related issues.

Fasawe, in a statement, said that unidentified hoodlums hired by facility owners to prevent lawful application of the law had been obstructing the agency’s officials from carrying out their official duties.

According to her, officials of the agency were attacked by hoodlums at the Westgate Lounge, Omole and Sky Louge, Oko Oba while performing their duty to shut down the facilities for their persistent noise.

She said that negative consequences awaited the perpetrators as the officials represented the government whose motive was to protect the interest of the society against interest of few self centred defaulters.

”Enforcing environmental law in our society that thrives on impunity will require enlisting maximum support of the members of the public.

”It will require support especially from our clerics, opinion, political and market leaders to lend their voices to the campaign and condemn the unwarranted but coordinated attacks being launched on the officials while performing their duties,” Fasawe noted

She further addressed the on-going insinuations and campaign of calumny against the agency by some mischief makers that particular religion is being targeted in the fight against noise.
