Noise Pollution: Hoodlums Attack LASEPA Officials, See Why
Some officials of the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) were attacked at the weekend after they tried to curb the menace of environmental nuisances.
HSENations reports the attacks took place at the Westgate Lounge, Omole and Sky Lounge, Oko-Oba, Agege while the officials were performing their duty to shutting down the facilities.
The facilities, LASEPA said, were known for their persistent noises and failure to operate within the ambit of the law.
The state government warned the general public, particularly noise polluters to desist from attacking its officials while discharging their duties or face the full wrath of the Law.
The warning came on the heels of clampdown exercise embarked on by the agency to stem the tide of noise pollution in the state.
The agency in its determination to curb the menace of environmental nuisances across the state and further restore sanity and orderliness, on Saturday, clamped down on over 20 facilities for various environmental related issues.
