About time I say!

Three churches, two mosques and two firms were on Monday, closed down by the Lagos state government for failing to comply with the state environmental law.

 Environmental Protection Agency Manager, Rasheed Shabi, said the affected buildings were noisily polluting the areas where they are located, and also for failing to comply with notices of abatement.
“The affected worship centres will not be opened until they comply with the environmental laws of the state as regards noise pollution.”
The churches are: the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Mission Church, Anthony Village; Christ Chosen Church, Onipanu and Evangelical Apostolic Church.
The affected mosques are Darusalam Mosque, Sabo and Ayegbesin Mosque, Oshodi.
Two companies were also closed down for emitting fumes that were hazardous to the people in the areas, they are, Sunplast Plastic, Isolo, and Scot Industries, Matori,
Mr Shabi said, one of the companies engaged its workers under dehumanising conditions.
