The Lagos State Environmental protection Agency, has warned facility owners who flagrantly flout the State environmental laws after the partial reopening of socio-economic activities, particularly religious and hospitality sectors, to desist or face the full wrath of the law.

The General Manager, LASEPA, Dr. Dolapo Fasawe, gave the warning during an enforcement exercise on Monday which led to the sealing of a private home situated at 21B, Akin Ogunlewe Street, Victoria island;

Christ The Convener Stone (RCCG) at 7, Oguntona Crescent, Gbagada; Home Town Eatery at 7, Addo Langbasa, Ajah and NAHMAN Construction Site at 7/9 Reeve Road, Ikoyi for environmental violations and breaching the peace within host communities under the guise of business activities.

Fasawe stated that it is disheartening that people have become recalcitrant to the new order, thus frustrating the efforts of the State Government to curb the spread of the COVID-19 by engaging in activities that endanger their lives and that of those around them.

According to her, “Environmental noise is inevitable and unavoidable in an urban city like Lagos. However, effective control and enforcement exercise to ensure total voluntary compliance to stipulated laws of the State would be beneficial to all residents and business owners.

As such, whoever acts contrary to the provision of the extant law of the State, should be ready to face the consequence so as to serve as a deterrent to others”.
