Night clubs, bars and lounges in the Lekki axis of Lagos State have been warned to desist from noise pollution or be shut.

A statement by the Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Tunji Bello, said enforcement raids were carried out on some night clubs in Lekki following repeated complaints by residents.

According to him, Prest Jazz Club on Admiralty Way, Lekki, was shut after enforcement officers of the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) raided the club and found giant speakers and musical instruments blaring loudly.

He averred that many residents of highbrow Lekki, especially elderly citizens, have inundated his office with petitions about the adverse effect of the noise pollution on their health every night till the early hours of the day.

Bello, who said the exercise will be continuous, advised clubs notorious for noise pollution to retrace their steps before it is too late. He said such facilities would be shut and the owners prosecuted.
