Nightclubs, bars, and lounges in Lagos State have been warned that if they continue to pollute the environment with noise, they face being shut down.

Businesses on the Lekki axis are the most regular offenders, according to the Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tunji Bello, in a statement issued on Sunday, October 3, 2021.

Residents in the vicinity complained about loud music at Prest Jazz Club in Lekki, which prompted a recent search by enforcement authorities from the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA).

For stage plays and shows, the police noticed the club was employing several large speakers and musical equipment.

Many Lekki residents, particularly the elderly, have complained about the negative impact of noise pollution on their health, according to Bello.

The commissioner cautioned company owners that if they do not follow the rules, they would face legal action.

According to studies, noise pollution is one of the causes of shortened lifespan, and the government will continue to conduct out enforcement operations in Lagos to put a stop to it.
