Lagos cautions nightclubs against noise pollution




The Lagos state government has sent a stern warning to nightclubs, bars, and lounges over noise pollution and threatens to punish defaulters.

This was made known on Sunday, through a post on Lagos’s official page on Facebook titled “LASG reads riot act to nightclubs, bars over noise pollution” which was centered on a statement by Tunji Bello, the Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources.

He stated that the government has carried out enforcement raids on some nightclubs, especially those in the Lekki axis, following the continual complaints from residents of the area. The post also reads “Reiterating that the exercise will be a continuous one,” Bello advised all clubs that engage in noise pollution to retrace their steps before it is too late, maintaining that apart from putting such clubs or bars under lock and key, the owners of the relaxation points would also be prosecuted according to the dictates of the law.

He stated that no one or organization would be treated as a sacred cow in the latest campaign, pointing out that research has also shown noise pollution as one of the causative factors for reduced lifespan.

Bello restated that the second pillar of the six-point Development Agenda of the present administration is Health and Environment, which includes combating noise
