The Lagos State Government has vowed to bring charges against workers from a nightclub in the Lekki neighborhood of the state for hitting officials of Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency, LASEPA.
In a widely shared video, club employees are seen assaulting agency employees who are on duty.
The agency’s Director of Public Affairs Kunle Adeshina, however, stated the business has now been sealed and those responsible would face legal action hours after the development.
“The premises of 10 POT Night Club at 2A Admiralty Way Lekki 1 have been resealed by the State Environmental Protection Agency following the break of the seal earlier placed on the premises,” he wrote on his X account on Sunday.
“This is just as the State Task Force on Environmental Offences officers took the 11 arrested employees who also assaulted LASEPA officials into custody pending arraignment before a competent court of law,” the statement added.
According to LASEPA, in an effort to “combat noise pollution,” the state has sealed a hotel in the Victoria Island region.
“Today, Sunday, 15th October 2023, the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency has taken action by locking the New View Hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos. This move is part of the agency’s continuous endeavors to combat noise pollution and address environmental infractions,” LASEPA tweeted.
