Lagos State Government has announced that 250 organisations, including industries, worship places and night clubs have been closed down for noise pollution and other environmental infractions over the last three months across the metropolis.

Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency’s General Manager, Babatunde Ajayi, disclosed this during the agency’s one-day capacity-building training for its accredited consultants across the state in conjunction with the Climate Transition Academy, held in the Central Business Development Area, Ikeja, Lagos.

He said the action is part of efforts to achieve an improved, safer, and sustainable environment in the state.

Ajayi who revealed that LASEPA has embarked on a lot of reforms geared towards achieving a noiseless, cleaner, safer and pollution-free Lagos, also appealed to accredited consultants to support the state government’s bid to deliver a safer, healthier and sustainable environment through the adoption of Environment Social Governance (ESG) global model in tackling identified environmental challenges.
