The Lagos State Government, through the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA), said it received more than 50 complaints of noise pollution in a week.

LASEPA CEO Dr. Dolapo Fasawe, in a statement on Friday, condemned the rise in noise pollution across the state and the resulting environmental violations.

Fasawe said that due to the constant clamor for ambient noise, the agency had to embark on law enforcement and seal off 15 hospitality facilities in seven days.

It condemned the flagrant disobedience of some hospitality and leisure operators to the environmental laws that govern their business operations.

”We responded to more than 50 complaints about noise pollution and sealed 15 facilities after verification and confirmation of the complaints.

”This requires caution and responsiveness on the part of all stakeholders. The issue of noise pollution has become a perennial problem that represents a serious threat to the sanity, stability and tranquility of the victims.

”The reports received in recent times are mostly about facilities previously sealed and reopened, indicating that the sanctioned operators did not comply with the rules and regulations.

“Its short-term compliance is therefore pretentious and misleading and will be dealt with in accordance with current laws,” said the CEO.

He said the facilities were sealed for violating residents’ rights to a peaceful environment.

Fasawe said that more zones have been created for residents to have the opportunity to report any environmental contamination in their areas.
